The oft-disgraced congressman, Anthony Weiner, has been released from prison as a part of a federal re-entry program in New York while he waits for his full release later this spring. Weiner was serving time after being convicted of sexting a 15-year-old North Carolina girl. He was sentenced to 21 months in prison and was transferred from Federal Medical Center in Massachusetts to New York’s Residential Reentry Management Program.
It is believed that Weiner is serving his remaining time until his release on May 14th, 2019 in home confinement or a halfway house. Upon release, Weiner will spend three years supervised and will pay a $10,000 fine. He will also register as a sex offender.
