Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in prison in sexting case

Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in prison in sexting case

Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer on Monday urged Cote to give Weiner a significant prison sentence to end his "tragic cycle" of sexting.

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) arrives at federal court for his sentencing hearing in a sexting scandal, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in NY.

Weiner asked the teen to "engage in sexually explicit conduct via Skype and Snapchat, where her body was on display, and where she was asked to sexually perform for him", prosecutors said in a sentencing memorandum.

He pleaded guilty in May to transferring obscene material to a minor and agreed not to appeal against a prison sentence of 27 months or less.

"I knew this was as morally wrong, as it was unlawful", Weiner said at his guilty plea in May.

For defense attorney Devlin-Brown, Weiner's story had been filled with central actors without agency: his client, led astray by his addiction, and a 15-year-old, too immature to share any responsibility but young enough to be a victim.

Browns head coach Hue Jackson said Burgess has responded well as the coaching staff has given him more and more responsibilities. Kizer will have a healthy Kenny Britt to overthrow as well as Rishard Higgins, who caught seven passes for 95 yards last week.

Weiner's lawyers, however, have argued that he is ill, pointing to his long history of inappropriate online behavior and philandering. The conviction carried a potential 10 years in prison.

"Although the defendant's self-destructive path from United States congressman to felon is indisputably sad, his crime is serious and his demonstrated need for deterrence is real", prosecutors wrote to the judge. He will begin serving his 21-month-prison sentence on November 6. The Daily Mail reported last September that Weiner had spent months flirting on apps like Confide and Kik with the girl, sending her shirtless pictures and saying he'd "bust that tight pussy so hard and so often".

"Something more and different is required, beyond personal and professional consequences, beyond the collateral consequences that he has faced before, beyond the scrutiny of the public, all of which have failed to sufficiently deter him in the past", she said. That discovery prompted then-FBI Director James Comey to announce in late October 2016 that he was reopening the probe of Clinton's use of a private computer server. Over the next few hours Weiner exchanged messages with her that ranged "from the mundane to the provocative".
