#AnthonyWeiner sentenced to 21 months the slammer for sexting 15-year-old

Anthony D. Weiner, the disgraced former New York congressman who became caught up in a scandal over his exchange of lewd texts with a 15-year-old girl, was sentenced on Monday to 21 months in prison.

Mr. Weiner, 53, had pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor, and had faced up to 10 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors, in their own memo to the judge, had argued that probation was “simply inadequate” and Mr. Weiner deserved prison.
