In a filing with the federal court in Santa Ana, California, Avenatti said he wanted to plead guilty “to be accountable; accept responsibility; avoid his former clients being further burdened; save the court and the government significant resources; and save his family further embarrassment.”

The filing did not say how many or which charges Avenatti wanted to plead guilty to.
