AYER, MA ((WBZ NewsRadio) -- Disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, known on the internet as Carlos Danger, is out of prison after serving most of a 21-month prison sentence at the Federal Medical Center Devens in Ayer, after being convicted of having illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner is being released early because of good behavior.
Weiner resigned from congress in 2011 after a scandal in which he sent a lewd picture of himself to a college student over Twitter. He then tried to claim his account had been hacked but eventually admitted he was guilty and had had similar on-line relationships with a number of other women even though he was married at the time. His next move was to mount a mayoral campaign in New York City in 2013, which ended badly after it was discovered he was again sending explicit photos of himself under the alias "Carlos Danger" to more women.
His criminal conviction came in 2017 after he was found guilty of sending sexually explicit messages to a North Carolina high school student. At his sentencing, Weiner admitted to being a "very sick man for a very long time" and having a sex addiction.
The husband of former Hillary Clinton right hand woman Huma Abedin, is now in the custody of the Residential Re-entry Management office in Brooklyn, New York. The once prominent democrat will now have to register as a sex-offender and spend three years on supervised release.
