Former congressman Anthony Weiner was ordered on April 5, 2019, to register himself as a sex offender.
In February 2019, 54-year-old Weiner was released early from prison and sent to a New York halfway house.
Weiner was permitted early release due to good behavior. The husband of Huma Abedin, the aide to Hillary Clinton’s official release date is May 14. However, he must be under court supervision for three years.
Weiner is now considered a Level 1 sex offender, which means the New York judge feels he is at low risk of committing the offense again.
Weiner will continue to register for a minimum of 20 years as a sex offender. He must also verify each year his address, within ten days of moving to notify the state, and every three years have a picture taken at a police station.
Weiner did not attend the hearing on April 5. It was not mandatory for him to attend.
In 2011 sex messages and a photo of his crotch was posted on Twitter. Two years later under the alias Carlos Danger, he sent explicit photos to a woman who was 22 years old.
In 2016, the scandal with the sexting to a teenage girl came to light, and he was sent to prison.
In Nov. 2017, he pled guilty to sexting a girl from North Carolina who was 15 and began his prison sentence of 21 months.
It is alleged he asked the girl to strip and touch herself in a sexual manner. He also sent photos of the girl of himself in a bed with his son.
In 2017, Abedine filed for divorce. However, in 2018, she withdrew the divorce paperwork.
