According to his California attorney, Michael Avenatti is completely broke and unable to pay his legal fees, according to a report from Fox News.
A motion was filed by Dean Steward on Saturday which provided details about the tax woes of Avenatti and requests taxpayer assistance to help him cover his costs.
“The bottom line is that Mr. Avenatti has run out of funds, and faces a complex trial lasting as long as six weeks,” Steward wrote in a filing to the federal judge who is overseeing one of the three ongoing criminal cases Avenatti is involved with.
"[B]ut the retainer has long since run out and defendant does not have funds to pay counsel,” Steward says, per Fox News. “Such an arrangement would save considerable taxpayer funds, over starting fresh with new … counsel.”
Avenatti's most famous client was adult film star Stormy Daniels. He was accused of bilking money from her in addition to a laundry list of alleged crimes, including trying to extort millions of dollars from Nike.
Let's take a look of Avenatti during his better days as a hero of the left.
