Anthony Weiner set to be released from prison early

Anthony Weiner, the former Democratic congressman from New York who pleaded guilty last year to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor, is scheduled for early release from prison, CNN reported Tuesday.
Weiner pleaded guilty in May 2017, and was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison. He reported to prison on Nov. 6, 2017, and would have been let out in August 2019, but the Federal Bureau of Prisons website shows his release date is now May 14, 2019. "This projected release date includes credit for good conduct time earned and good conduct time that may be earned throughout the remainder of his sentence," the Bureau of Prisons told CNN in a statement.
Weiner's guilty plea stemmed from communications he had with a 15-year-old girl online between January and March 2016. Speaking in court, he said this was "my rock bottom. I have no excuse. ... I victimized a young person who deserved better." In 2011, a year after he married Huma Abedin, Weiner resigned after it was discovering he was sexting women, and more explicit messages were released in 2013 when he ran unsuccessfully for mayor of New York City. Abedin filed for divorce last year.
