Anthony Weiner Gets Sentenced for 21 Months

Former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison for soliciting an underage woman to undress and touch herself over a Skype call between the two, the New York Post reports.

  • The woman, who initiated the conversation by messaging him over Twitter, was fifteen at the time of the two-month sexting ordeal.
  • Wiener unsuccessfully attempted to plead for probation given that he continues his rehabilitation with Sex Addicts Anonymous.
  • In addition to the 21 month jail sentence, Weiner must pay a $10,000 fine and participate in three years of post-prison release supervision.

Weiner will enter prison on November 6th, but the location is still unknown. Wiener’s lawyer requested a low-security prison near New York, specifically Schuylkill Corrections Facility in Pennsylvania.
