Monday Former Representative Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 Months for Sexting a Minor

Monday Former New York Representative Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 month in federal prison for sexting a 15 year old. He was also sentenced to three years supervised release and must register as a sex offender.

Weiner began messaging the victim intimately after she initially reached out to him on one of his social media sites.

Weiner’s defense made a point that he was also texting 19 other girls who were of legal age, arguing that the incident was out of sex addiction and not out of an attraction to young females.

Weiner’s trial gained national attention after FBI discovered emails forwarded to Huma Abedin, Weiner’s estranged wife and long time Hilary Clinton aid, that were related to Hilary Clinton. This caused the FBI to reopen the investigation into Clinton’s emails just weeks before the election although nothing illegal was found. A move Clinton has since labeled as one of factors that damaged her campaign.
