A Manhattan judge is scheduled to sentence Anthony Weiner Monday for his sexts to a minor—and prosecutors want the former U.S. Representative behind bars.
Weiner in May pleaded guilty to sending a series of sexually explicit pictures and messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. As part of that agreement, he agreed not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months and will register as a sex offender. Officials are seeking a two-year sentence.
Federal prosecutors dismissed Weiner’s claim of regret and assertion that he is undergoing treatment, saying he failed to learn any lessons from his previous sexting scandals and his conduct “suggests a dangerous level of denial and lack of self-control.”
