Former lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, was found guilty last month on all counts in his extortion case against apparel company Nike. The lawyer threatened to publicly accuse Nike of illicitly paying amateur basketball players unless the company paid him millions of dollars. Avenatti was in crushing debt at the time and wanted to use Nike's case to make money. He tried to bilk $23.5 million from Nike, and now faces up to 42 years in prison.  In January, he was transferred from a California facility to the notorious 10 South, a jail deep inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Tribeca that his attorney Scott Srebnick described as sheer dehumanization. The attorney said that the temperature of the 8-by-10-foot cell are in the mid-40s and that his client was forced to sleep with three blankets and not permitted to shave. Avenatti was in a cell where everything he did was reportedly watched. He reportedly showered in view of cameras. He couldn't control the lights, which reportedly never turn off. The prison is also said to be infested with vermin. In the summer, the temperature reportedly becomes debilitatingly hot. The disgraced lawyer has now been moved out of the downtown Manhattan jail cell he despises to 5 South where general population privileges include 92 hours out of the cell per week, during which prisoners have unlimited but monitored email access, cellphone privileges, television privileges and library access.
