Michael Avenatti Seeks Early Release from Prison Due to Coronavirus

Disgraced anti-Trump lawyer Michael Avenatti is hoping the coronavirus pandemic can land him an early release from prison.

James Woods recently blasted CNN’s Oliver Darcy, reminding him how often they featured Avenatti.

Avenatti was once even considered a serious contender by the liberal media for President as you can see in this segment below.


Yahoo reports convicted Los Angeles lawyer Michael Avenatti urged a court on Monday to release him from a federal jail in New York after a judge agreed that his health could be jeopardized by the spread of the coronavirus among inmates.

The former attorney for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels is part of a growing group of high-profile prisoners, including comedian Bill Cosby and financier Bernie Madoff, who say they should be set free to protect them from COVID-19.

The pleas for mercy come amid mounting concerns that jails and prisons could serve as dangerous breeding grounds for the coronavirus. An inmate and four people who work in Los Angeles County jails have tested positive for COVID-19. After displaying symptoms Thursday, the inmate was taken to L.A. County-USC Medical Center.
