Sicko ex congressman Anthony Weiner was seen spending his last days before prison with son Jordan and estranged wife Huma Abedin.
After admitting to having inappropriately sexted a teenage girl, he was sentenced to 21 months in jail plus three more years of supervised release. He also mist pay a $10K fine for his horrific crime.
Weiner’s legal team tried to argue that the “sick” man needed intense therapy rather than incarceration, yet the judge did not agree. A disagraced Abedin filed for divorce from her troubled husband the day of his sentence.
In her book What Happened, Hillary Clinton, 70, claimed that Abedin, her longtime aide, broke down when she found out about Weiner’s sex crime, and even cried “this man is going to be the death of me!” while bursting out in tears.
Weiner came clean about his crime and alleged “sickness” after the FBI found proof of his inappropriate conversations with the teen. He was also said to have been speaking to 19 other women, apart from the 15-year-old girl. The underage victim then came forward to tell her story on camera. While her name was not revealed due to her age, she told media that she was “disgusted” by the much-older politician’s sexual advances towards her, adding that she had to uproot her entire life after the incident.
Weiner publicly apologized to the teen and to his own family, saying, "This crime was my rock bottom. I have no excuse... I victimized a young person who deserved better." His vacant words, however, were not enough for heartbroken wife Huma Abedin to stay.
Weiner's attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown said in a statement at the time: "Judge Denise Cote reasoned that because of Anthony's notoriety, a sentence of imprisonment could discourage others from following in his footsteps. We certainly hope this public service message is received, but it has resulted in a punishment more severe than it had to be given the unusual facts and circumstances of this case."
