Not long ago Michael Avenatti was working on his 2020 presidential run. Then he was placed in federal prison, ending any of his hopes and dreams to become president.
Now the disgraced lawyer is going to be temporarily released due to the COVID-19 outbreak. He was sent to jail for trying to extort Nike. The reason he was released was he tested negative for coronavirus.

So another convicted felon is out on the streets roaming free. Here is more on the story from Fox News:
“If the defendant is found to be exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or is confirmed to have COVID-19, the defendant shall not be released to the public because of the danger the defendant poses to the community,” District Court Judge James Selma said in a release order.
After a 14-day quarantine at a federal facility, Avenatti would be released on a $1 million bond to the custody of a childhood friend in Los Angeles for 90 days and must shelter in place, the order said. The friend could be held in contempt of court if Avenatti violates the terms of his release.
Avenatti also would be required to wear a location monitoring bracelet.
Avenatti was convicted in February of trying to extort Nike and in the last month, his lawyers have been pushing for his release amid the virus pandemic.
A March court motion requesting home confinement for Avenatti said he was particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus in part because his cellmate was removed from his cell due to flu-like symptoms.
There should be no special treatment for Avenatti. He should be sitting in jail waiting for his sentencing.
Instead, he's roaming free and hanging out with a childhood friend. Why isn't he with family? Are we sure this childhood friend won't just help him commit more crime?
Lock him up and throw away the key. He is a disgrace.
