Shortened: Good Behavior Earns Anthony Weiner Leniency

‘Carlos Danger’ will be back on the streets sooner than expected.

Disgraced former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner has earned a shortened sentence in federal prison due to good behavior, according to an early Sunday morning report.

“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Weiner’s been transferred out of a Massachusetts prison and into the custody of a Bureau of Prisons residential re-entry center in New York. We’re told he’s either in a halfway house or home confinement,” according to a TMZ report.

“Weiner’s now in pre-release status, which inmates often get as they approach the end of their federal sentence. The purpose is to prepare them to transition back into society,” the report continued.

Weiner is not quite free yet, but he is out of jail. The infamous sexter, who once went by the moniker “Carlos Danger,” was serving a 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old girl. His original release date was supposed to be in August, but has been moved to May 14, according to the report.

In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress after his first sexting scandal. His New York City mayoral campaign was foiled after his second sexting scandal in 2013. The scandal for which he ended up in jail was the premise for confiscating his laptop in 2016, on which thousands of emails from then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were found.

His then-wife Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide, filed for divorce shortly after he cut a plea deal with authorities.
