Former congressman, Anthony Weiner checked into prison this morning after his conviction for sexting an underage girl, a source close to the disgraced politician has confirmed.
Speaking exclusively to RadarOnline.com, an insider said:
“He was cooperative, and is looking forward to getting the help he needs, adding that the facility — Devens Federal Medical Center in Ayres, Massachusetts offers specialty treatment for sex offenders.
The Bureau of Prisons describes FMC Devens as “an in-house psychology department that offers inmates counseling for depression and suicidal ideation, as well as sex-offender and drug-addiction programs.”
Weiner, 53, the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s former adviser, pleaded guilty to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor in May 2017. The charges stem from communications that the former congressman had with a 15-year-old girl on social media sites between January and March 2016.
In September, a federal judge sentenced Weiner to 21-months behind bars and he will do three years of supervised release and pay a $10,000 fine.
