SANTA ANA, Calif. (77WABC) — Attorney Michael Avenatti was sentenced Monday to 14 years in federal prison for tax and wire fraud.

The sentence was handed down by a judge in a federal courtroom Monday in Orange County, California.

His sentence will run consecutively with the five years he’s already serving for convictions in New York City, in an extortion case against Nike, and for stealing from his former client, Stormy Daniels.
