Attorney Michael Avenatti thanked his Twitter followers Sunday night for sticking by his side and believing in “due process and the concept of innocence until proven otherwise.”
“A big thank you to all of the people that have wished me well, offered kind words or support, or even just kept an open mind because they believe in due process and the concept of innocence until proven otherwise,” Avenatti tweeted.
He is facing a potential prison sentence following an indictment that charged him with stealing millions of dollars from his clients.
Avenatti, the former lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, allegedly stole millions from one client to purchase a private jet, according to the indictment. Federal authorities seized the jet.
