Anthony Weiner To Be Released From Federal Prison Early

October 10, 2018 - 10:28 am

NEW YORK (WCBS 880/CBS News) -- Former New York Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner has been a model prisoner and that has earned him an early release from federal detention.

The 54-year-old Weiner will be out May 14 of next year, three months before the end of his 21-month sentence for sexting with a minor, according to prison records.

In an email to CBS News, the Bureau of Prisons confirmed Weiner, who is being held at the Federal Medical Center Devens in Ayer, Massachussetts, is being released early for good behavior.

Weiner pleaded guilty last May to sending obscene material to a 15-year-old girl.

He will have to register as a sex offender upon release from prison.
