Anthony Weiner Released From Federal Prison
Disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner has been released from federal prison and is serving out the remainder of his sentence in a halfway house.
Fox 5 reported that the former Democratic congressman from New York was originally sentenced in 2017 to 21 months in prison for sending texts to a minor. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, Weiner only served 15 months of his sentence at the Federal Medical Center.
The Bureau of Prisons states that the residential re-entry centers are designed to reduce the chances that inmates will relapse into criminal behavior and are intended to provide assistance to inmates nearing release.
The ex-congressman is set to be released May 14 later this year. In addition to his prison sentence, Weiner will have three years of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.
As we reported, Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after admitting that he sent sexual texts to a minor as well as numerous other online relationships with women. He also had posted nude images on Twitter. He was married while all of these allegations began to surface.
