The Los Angeles City Attorney refused to report allegations of domestic violence against Stormy Daniels attorney, Michael Avenatti.
In a statement released on Friday, the city attorney's office stated that the prosecutor refuses to file charges at this time, but is leaving the case open and has scheduled two hearings for Avenatti and his alleged victim, the 39, ex-girlfriend Mareli Miniutti, to give further proof.
"The municipal prosecutor's office has reviewed all the reports on the matter and considered all the evidence," a spokesman told DailyMail.com.
"The issue has been set for Attorney Hearings where both the victim and the suspect will have the opportunity to be heard on different days, and the victim will be notified of the services at his disposal. whereas, although we do not currently accept redemption requests, the matter remains open and we can lodge a complaint at any time before the limitation period expires. "
Avenatti tweeted a statement in response to Friday's news.
The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office has announced that it will not file allegations of domestic abuse against Michael Avenatti but is leaving the case open & # 39;
Miniutti, actress of Estonian origin, 24, suspected Avenatti dragged her through her apartment and called her an ingrata f ** king b ** ch & # 39; during a physical altercation at his home in Los Angeles.
"I am extremely grateful that after three in-depth investigations, one from the LAPD, one from the Los Angeles District Attorney and one from the Los Angeles City Attorney, the truth of my innocence is now established and no charges are filed," 39, lawyer.
"Every alleged victim should investigate her or her statements, and that's exactly what happened, I want to thank the LAPD, LADA and LACA for their professionalism during this difficult process." I will keep telling the truth to power and I will try justice for my clients ".
Avenatti, who represents the porn star Stormy Daniels in his case on a presumed relationship with President Donald Trump, was accused by Miniutti of hitting her with a pillow, shouting insults, dragging her onto the floor and pushing her out of her apartment during a clash in November.
The lawyer was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and saved the same day for $ 50,000.
However, the district attorney refused to incriminate him for a crime, and instead sent the case to the district attorney to consider allegations of domestic violence. On Friday, the city's lawyer announced that they would not file a complaint.
In the court documents presented as part of a temporary restraining order, the 24-year-old actress claimed that Avenatti called her "Fuckless Fuck", and hit her in the face with the bed cushions during a discussion about money.
She claimed that Avenatti told her, "Do not disrespect me, do not sleep at my house tonight," he grabbed her right wrist and "tried to get me out of bed."
The actress, who lived with Avenatti since January, said she tried to send messages to a friend for help, but the lawyer grabbed her phone.
Miniutti claims that Avenatti dragged her into the apartment corridor while he was in his underwear, but he brought her back to the apartment when he started ringing a neighbor's bell.
Miniutti presented photos of his alleged injuries as evidence. She says she was injured after Avenatti pulled her wrist to get her out of bed before dragging her to the floor
Miniutti also said that last February, Avenatti "had drunk, and got angry at me", then pushed her out of her apartment and hit her head and threw her shoes on.
He claimed that the lawyer was financially controlling and had "promised to" take care of me "despite being" violently opposed to my desire to earn a living outside of Hollywood ".
The actress says he is afraid of his ex, and he was granted a temporary restraining order against him in November, which was extended until March in a hearing at the beginning of this month.
Speaking after being released from a Los Angeles police station in November, Avenatti called the claims "false" and said he would be "completely cleared."
I do not see the complete compensation of my name and the disclosure of all the facts. I have never abused a woman or committed domestic violence against anyone, "the lawyer wrote later.
"Any statement to the contrary is completely false and invented, I am a target, and I will be acquitted."
The news that no charge will be filed is just a headache less for the defense attorney. In the last three months, Avenatti has had to give up his private charter flights, Ferrari and five luxury wrist watches to pay off the delinquent son and spousal support to his separated wife, and was ordered by a judge to pay almost $ 5 million to a lawyer at his former law firm in a pay dispute.
The allegations of domestic violence have also put the final nail in the presidential coffin of 2020 provided by Avenatti, despite the continuous and strong denials of their veracity.
After the allegations emerged, the pornstar's lawyer insinuated in a rabid tweet that Trump's conspiracy theorist and supporter, Jacob Wohl, had put him on his feet.
Avenatti, who represents the porn star Stormy Daniels (both photographed at the Adult Video News Awards on January 26) in her court case for a presumed relationship with President Donald Trump, has worked on behalf of alleged victims of sexual violence by R Kelly.
On Friday, the lawyer tweeted to be "extremely grateful" that "the truth of my innocence is now established and charges are not charged"
Referring to a previous complicated scheme of Wohl to falsely accuse Special Counsel Robert Mueller of sexual misconduct, the lawyer tweeted: "First Mueller and now I. When we are completely exhausted, I come for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire. "
However, the enterprising lawyer is now moving on to another case of alleged sexual misconduct, twitting Thursday that he worked on behalf of alleged victims of sexual violence by R Kelly.
"From April, I worked on the issue of R. Kelly, the results of that work will be known soon, we are going to open all this for the good of each of its victims and a less pedophile will be free. written Avenatti.
The rapper has been surrounded for two decades by allegations of sexually abusing minors, detailed in a series of Lifetime documentaries last year, "Surviving R. Kelly". R Kelly denies all claims.
