Michael Avenatti has been convicted on all counts in his Nike extortion case.
The 48-year-old lawyer was charged last year after the sports company accused him of trying to extort it for $25million.
They said Avenatti threatened to expose Nike for allegedly funneling payments to college basketball players. He denied it vehemently.
On Friday, a jury in New York convicted the lawyer, who is best know for once representing Stormy Daniels, on all three counts; attempted extortion, honest services wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort.
