Will be forced to register as a sex offender and be under three years of supervised release…
(Clayton Guse, New York Daily News) Anthony Weiner is out of the slammer and back in New York.
The disgraced ex-congressman and former mayoral candidate was released from federal prison in Massachusetts and is now in a re-entry center, records show.
Weiner, 54, served 15 months of his 21-month sentence at Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., after pleading guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old girl.
He’ll finish his sentence under the watch of a federal residential re-entry management office in Brooklyn.
It’s unclear if he is living in a re-entry center or if he is under home confinement.
Per his 2017 sentence handed down by Judge Denise Cote, Weiner will be forced to fork over a $10,000 fine, register as a sex offender and be under three years of supervised release.
Weiner has a long history of sexting issues, but his habit became criminal when he began chatting with a North Carolina high schooler on Jan. 23, 2016.
Using the alias “T-Dog” over the course of three video chat sessions, Weiner “used graphic and obscene language to ask the minor victim to display her naked body and touch herself, which she did,” prosecutors wrote.
Weiner’s ex-wife — longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — filed for divorce amid the scandal, which led the FBI to reopen a probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server less than two weeks before the 2016 election.
Weiner’s sexting problems date back to at least 2011, when his congressional career was derailed by an errant tweet containing a close-up photo of him in tight boxer briefs.
The politician’s penchant for perversion became public again in 2013 while he was in the middle of a mayoral campaign.
Lewd texts sent by Weiner under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger” to a 22-year-old woman were uncovered and circulated online, effectively squashing his chances of winning the election.
“I was a very sick man for a very long time,” Weiner said during his 2017 sentencing hearing.
“There’s a uniform opinion by those who have examined him that he is an addict,” Cote said at the hearing. “He has a disease that (includes) sexual compulsivity. Some call it a sex addiction.”
Cote said steps would be taken to restrict Weiner’s access to social media.
