Nearly a year after he began serving 21 months behind bars for sexting an underage girl, Anthony Weiner is set to be released three months early for "good conduct," RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
The former disgraced politician, 54, reported to the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts on November 6, 2017 — with a scheduled release date of August 2019.
But according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, his release date has been moved up to May 2019.
"The projected release date for Anthony Weiner is May 14, 2019," a spokesperson for the BOP told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive statement. "This projected release date includes credit for good conduct time that may be earned throughout the remainder of his sentence. Good conduct time is governed by Title 18 U.S. Code Section 3624(b), which provides for inmates to earn up to 54 days of good conduct time credit for each year served."
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Weiner's political career unraveled in 2011 after a photo of his crotch and sext 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 a 15-year-old — and even sent the girl a picture of himself in bed with his young son.
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.
