Anthony Weiner is no longer behind bars, as RadarOnline.com has confirmed that the disgraced congressman has gone into a halfway house in New York.
The move is earlier than originally expected. Hillary Clinton's aide Huma Abedin's husband will still be officially released on May 14, 2019, as RadarOnline.com previously reported. Weiner, 54, was reportedly transferred out of a Massachusetts prison and into a residential re-entry center in New York this weekend.
He's preparing to transition back into society in pre-release status. Weiner began serving his 21-month prison sentence in November 2017 after pleading guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
He was first scheduled to be released in August 2019, but good behavior reduced his sentence.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Weiner’s political career unraveled in 2011 after a photo of his crotch and sex messages were leaked on Twitter. A second scandal erupted two years later, when Weiner sent explicit photos under the alias “Carlos Danger” to a 22-year-old woman.
But he wasn’t done yet. In 2016, Weiner was caught sexting the 15-year-old — and even sent the girl a picture of himself in bed with his young son by Abedin!
Weiner pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor, and on top of his sentencing, was forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Following his sentencing, Abedin filed for divorce in 2017. But she later apparently forgave her sleazy man and withdrew the papers in 2018. It's unclear whether Abedin, who was right by Hillary's side during her losing 2016 Presidential run, will divorce Weiner once he's out of prison.
