Spend three years on supervised release
Has it really been that long?
Former Congressman Anthony Weiner has been released from prison.
In 2017, Weiner was sentenced to 21 months after sending sexually explicit text messages to underage girls. Weiner is not serving his full sentence, which would be satisfied in August of 2019.
According to USA Today, Weiner has been “transferred to a transitional facility in New York and must register as a sex offender.”
Anthony Weiner, the former congressman convicted of sexting with a 15-year-old girl, has been released from a federal prison in Massachusetts to a transitional facility in New York and must register as a sex offender.
Weiner, 54, pleaded guilty in May 2017 to transferring obscene material to a minor. Four months later, he was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons website says Weiner was transferred from the Federal Medical Center in Devens to a Residential Re-Entry Management facility in Brooklyn. Weiner, who has a release date of May 14, most likely will serve out his time in a halfway house or home confinement.
Weiner must register as a sex offender and spend three years of supervised release.
Prosecutors said the teen initiated the communications with Weiner via Twitter in January 2016. The girl acknowledged she was a minor, but the contacts continued over Snapchat and other social media outlets.
Even after the girl told Weiner that she was 15, Weiner asked her to show him her naked body, which she did, prosecutors said. He also sent her pornography.
