UPDATE: It seems that there was more to the story than originally released:
When three officers approached her, she proceeded to do the same, allegedly pushing their faces into her chest and fondling them.
Porn star Stormy Daniels was arrested Wednesday night in Ohio for allowing a customer to touch her. In Ohio, stripping is legal, but they are very strict that there be no touching of any kind. Her lawyer, the ethically challenged Michael Avenatti, says she will vigorously fight the charges because she has done the same act in other states without repercussions.
That may well be true, but not all states have a law against touching. Ignorance is no excuse – and neither is ignorance of the law. Touching is a misdemeanor resulting in a small fine under normal circumstances, but can lead to a short jail sentence, especially when a lawyer tries to embarrass the police and DA. But Avenatti isn’t concerned, because Stormy would have to do the time, not him.
Avenatti told NBC News that he was of the understanding that there were multiple undercover vice officers in the club during Daniels’ show. After the customer touched her, according to the attorney, those officers got up and arrested the performer on the spot.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had sex with Trump in 2006, while he was married to Melania Trump.
In October 2016, on the eve of the presidential election, Michael Cohen, then Donald Trump’s personal attorney, used a shell company he had set up to pay Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.
The money-hawking Daniels accepted $130,000 for agreeing not to talk about her alleged tryst with President Trump. Now she is suing to end that agreement because she has found she can make a bundle of money. She has never furnished any proof that the encounter (that Donald Trump denies) ever took place. And, even if it did, which I doubt, she freely admits it was totally consensual.
