Attorney Michael Avenatti Faces New Criminal Charges In Calif.

Federal prosecutors are set to file new criminal charges against Michael Avenatti in California, marking yet another legal blow for the embattled attorney.
During a press conference Thursday, officials announced a 36-count indictment reportedly filed by the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service.
Following the announcement, Avenatti tweeted that he remains “confident that justice will be done.”
This comes after the 48-year-old was charged this week for filing false tax returns to secure four million dollars loans and withholding millions from a client.
Avenatti has waived his right to a preliminary hearing. He is set to be arraigned at the end of this month.
