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.
