"Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested Monday in New York City on charges of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to publicize claims that company employees authorized payments to the families of top high school basketball players.

Avenatti also was separately charged in a second federal case in Los Angeles with embezzling a client’s money 'in order to pay his own expenses and debts' and those of his law firm and coffee company, and of 'defrauding a bank in Mississippi,' prosecutors said.

He faces almost 100 years in prison if convicted in both cases as well as possible disbarment as a lawyer.

Avenatti was due to be released from Manhattan federal court after a hearing, and after signing a $300,000 personal recognizance bond. No actual money is posted for such bail; Avenatti would forfeit property or cash equivalent to the dollar amount of the bond if he fails to appear in court for future hearings."
