Disgraced New York City ex-congressman Anthony Weiner (AKA: “Carlos Danger” and “Mr Huma Abedin”) has been released from his Gotham halfway house after being found guilty of “sexting” a 15-year-old North Carolina girl.
Specifically, he was busted on one count of transferring obscene material to a minor.
Sentenced to a 21-month gig in the Big House for his under-age hanky-panky, Weiner actually spent most of his time in a Massachusetts prison before being transferred to a Brooklyn York halfway house last February.
Alas, the woes of Weiner won’t end upon his release from the pokey. He’ll have to register as a Level 1 Sex Offender for the next 20-years.
As reported by the Associated Press;
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was ordered Friday to register as a sex offender as he nears the end of a 21-month prison sentence for having illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl.
A New York City judge designated Weiner a Level 1 offender under the state’s version of what’s known as Megan’s Law, meaning that he is thought to have a low risk of reoffending.
Weiner, a once-rising star in the Democratic Party who served nearly 12 years in Congress, has been living in a halfway house since February after serving most of his sentence at a prison in Massachusetts.
He’s due to be released May 14 but still faces three years of court supervision.
Weiner, 54, must register for a minimum of 20 years. He is required to verify his address every year, notify the state within 10 days of moving and visit a police station every three years to have a new picture taken.
Weiner pleaded guilty in May 2017 to transferring obscene material to a minor.
Prosecutors said he had a series of sexually explicit Skype and Snapchat exchanges with a North Carolina high school student and encouraged the teen to strip naked and touch herself sexually.
However, all is not bad news for Weiner. Published in the South Jersey Times on Feb 18, 2019, the 54-year-old will face quite a taxpayer subsidized congressional pension when he reaches 62;
In September 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. What I find most disturbing is that the ex-congressman, (who reigned back in 2011 over a similar incident) is still eligible, should he reach age 62, for a sizable congressional pension that has been calculated at about $46,000 a year.
