Embattled lawyer Michael Avenatti offered a full-throated self-defense Wednesday during a 35-minute opening statement of the federal criminal fraud trial against the one-time media darling.
“I have pled not guilty for one reason – because I am not guilty,” Avenatti told the socially-distanced jury. He portrayed himself as a legal avenger who took on the rich and powerful on behalf of the meek.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Let me be clear: no crime was committed by me and I never intended to steal or defraud any client of any money at all,” he said.
Avenatti is accused of stealing millions of settlement dollars from his own clients.
“We were entitled to be paid,” Avenatti reportedly declared. “We advanced enormous amounts of money to these clients,” he added.
