Attorneys for Michael Avenatti, the shyster lawyer who formerly represented pathetic stripper Stormy Daniels, filed a motion late Monday, demanding the Metropolitan Correctional Center give Avenatti a change of address. The former occupant of his cell was Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. His lawyers say that makes it impossible for Avenatti to get a fair trial.

Avenatti is being treated like a terrorist, they say, making it impossible “to prepare for his upcoming extortion trial.”

Not only did he try to shake down Donald Trump, Avenatti stands accused of “threatening to publicize accusations that Nike Inc. illegally paid families of college basketball recruits unless the sportswear company paid him $15 million to $25 million to conduct a probe.”

Avenatti is cooling his heels in the same jail Jeffrey Epstein died of strangulation in, under suspicious circumstances, last August. Avenatti’s just thankful he didn’t try to put the squeeze on the Clintons.

The tender sleazoid ambulance chaser is being “tortured,” his lawyers insist. That’s the way El Chapo described it when he stayed there. As Reuters puts it, “At his sentencing last July, Guzman described living there as ‘psychological, emotional, mental torture 24 hours a day.'”

Avenatti is being held “in solitary confinement under 24-hour lockdown,” which gives him “great difficulty functioning.” He has to sleep with three blankets because the temperature “feels like the mid-40s.” Not only that, he’s under “special administrative measures” which keep him isolated from all outsiders, including his legal team.

The Defense wants him moved to general population, “where he can meet with them and better prepare for trial,” scheduled to begin next week.

Avenatti wouldn’t be there in the first place if he didn’t break the rules set by a California judge in a separate criminal case. He was thrown in jail there last week because he “violated bail conditions.” They flew him to Manhattan on Friday.

    That looks like the Holiday Inn, compared to what I’ve seen is some jails/prisons.

    Shelves, Desk, Stool, and even light switches…

    Why should he get special treatment. What because he’s rich ? The guy off the streets doesn’t get it that good so why should he . He’s in jail for a reason of his own doing , can’t blame anyone for that but himself . You made your bed … now sleep in it . As they say … don’t do the crime. .. if you can’t do the time … Bad boy why ya going do when they come for you ?

    The poor, little CPL can’t take it, uh! So sad, too bad, but the probability that he will get a life sentence when convicted makes what he is now going through seem like nothing.

    I agree with him 100%, I would grant a change of address for him, to a general population prison, w/NO special amenities, just a Stainless Toilet & wash station, Gang Showers & Cafeteria Style general open Meals! For everyone, Crime must pay, Politicians Too Laborers SAME TREATMENT is Justice!

    I say throw that guy into the overcrowded general population cells with known gang members and maybe a sexual predator or two – lifers who go in and out of the system will eat him like a taco

    Avanatti should be thankful he has his private cell , at least there he won’t become “Bride of Bubba” . Mr ‘Avidly Nasty’ wouldn’t last 2mins in general population .
