Anthony D. Weiner, whose repeated sexting scandals cost him his seat in Congress, his bid to become mayor of New York City, and possibly Hillary Clinton’s chances at the presidency, was sentenced on Monday.
According to hannity.com:
Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison on Monday for sending sexually explicit pictures to an under-aged teenager in 2016; completing the liberal legislators fall from grace that began back in 2011.
According to the New York Post, the New York democrat and one-time Mayoral candidate was slapped with the nearly two-year long prison term, along with three years of supervised release and a $10,000 fine, and will turn himself into the court on November 6th.
“I was a very sick man for a very long time,” Weiner told Judge Denise Cote. “I was the adult…if I had done the right thing I would not be standing before you today.”
“This was a serious crime, and it’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment,” said Cote. “There’s a uniform opinion by those who have examined him that he is an addict. He has a disease that (includes) sexual compulsivity. Some call it a sex addiction.”
“Steps are being taken…to limit his access to social media,” she added.
The 53-year old politician plead guilty earlier this year to “sexting” and “transmitting” sexually explicit images with a fifteen-year-old minor.
The liberal legislator had a stunning fall from grace in 2011 when he accidentally tweeted obscene photographs of himself; resulting in Weiner’s resignation from Congress later that year.
