Anthony Weiner Begins 21-Month Prison Sentence

219

Disgraced former Democrat politician Anthony Weiner voluntarily surrendered himself to federal prison authorities at the Federal Medical Center Devens prison in Massachusetts this Monday to begin a 21-month sentence for sexting with a minor.

Situated on the grounds of the former Fort Devens military installation, the prison where Weiner will reside for the next two or so years houses over 1,000 inmates, according to the Boston Herald.

Included in the prison is a so-called “sex offender treatment facility” for perverts like Weiner.

The disgraced former House representative pleaded guilty in May to having sent sexually explicit pictures and messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina last year.

“I engaged in obscene communications with this teenager,” Weiner said in court at the time, according to The New York Times. “(Those communications) included sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct.”

“I accept full responsibility for my conduct,” he added. “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.”

Four months later New York Judge Denise Cote sentenced him to 21 months in federal prison, saying, “This is serious crime that deserves serious punishment.”

The New York Post reported that Weiner spent his final Sunday in freedom “holed up in his Union Square apartment” in New York with his father, Morton.

He was likely depressed, since the next 21 months will be a veritable hell for him given the conditions at the Federal Medical Center Devens.

An “Admission and Orientation Inmate Handbook” for the prison published six years ago by the Federal Bureau of Prisons revealed inmates at the facility must consent to random contraband searches and urine/alcohol checks.

Living at the facility also carries the risk of being sexually assaulted.

“If you are afraid or feel you are being threatened or pressured to engage in sexual behaviors, you should discuss your concerns with staff,” the manual states.

“Because this can be a difficult topic to discuss, some staff, like psychologists, are specially trained to help you deal with problems in this area,” the manual added.

Comparatively speaking, however, this prison isn’t as bad as others, in that it’s designed specifically “for men requiring specialized or long-term medical or mental-health care,” as noted by The Daily Beast a couple years back.

Weiner is the estranged husband of failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide, Huma Abedin.
