Michael Avenatti has been indicted on 36 counts of fraud, perjury, failure to pay taxes, embezzlement and other financial crimes; he's accused of stealing millions of dollars from clients, including a new claim that he stole millions of dollars from a paraplegic client’s settlement.

Avenatti responded to the indictment today saying we should presume he's innocent.

"For 20 years, I have represented Davids vs. Goliaths and relied on due process and our system of justice. Along the way, I have made many powerful enemies. I am entitled to a FULL presumption of innocence and am confident that justice will be done once ALL of the facts are known," he wrote on Twitter.
