Michael Avenatti Charged: Stole $300,000 From Stormy Daniels

New York (CNN) A federal grand jury in Manhattan indicted celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday in two alleged schemes, charging him with fraud and aggravated identity theft involving his former client, Stormy Daniels, and with attempting to extort more than $20 million from sportswear giant Nike.

Avenatti rose to fame during his representation of Daniels, the adult-film actress who was a central figure in the hush-money scandal that resulted in Manhattan federal prosecutors charging Michael Cohen -- President Donald Trump's former personal attorney -- with campaign-finance violations for money he paid to silence women, including Daniels, who claimed affairs with Trump.
