Weiner Goes Free: Stiff Sentence Turns Soft As Ex-Congressman Gets Early Release
After he helped change the course of US history by prompting the FBI to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server during the final days of the 2016 campaign, former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner and ex-husband of Hillary aide Huma Abedin has been released from federal prison a few months ahead of schedule thanks to his ‘good behavior’ on the inside, according to a TMZ report.
To be sure, Weiner must spend a few more months under federal supervision before he’s completely in the clear. Under the terms of his release, Weiner must now spend a few additional months in federal custody, either in a half way house or other supervised pre-release program, before he can lawfully reenter society. Weiner served his time at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., where he received treatment for his “condition” of being a sex offender.
Weiner resigned from Congress after his first sex offender scandal in 2011, then his comeback campaign for New York City mayor floundered in 2013 when he was…um…exposed for sexting porn star Sydney Leathers [Pictured] using the now infamous alias “Carlos Danger”.
The third incident, which earned him a conviction on federal sex offender charges of improper sexual contact with a minor, finally destroyed his marriage to Abedin.
Weiner began serving what was supposed to be a 21-month prison sentence in November 2017 after pleading guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old North Carolina girl. He was scheduled to be released in August, 2019, but managed to slash 3 months off his sentence for good behavior, moving his departure date from federal custody to May 14.
TMZ reported that he will leave federal custody entirely on that date.
