Anthony Weiner Reported To Massachusetts Prison, Dropped Off By His Brother

This morning, Anthony Weiner reported to Devens Prison in Ayer, Massachusetts to start serving his 21-month sentence for sexting a minor, a 15-year-old girl, via Skype. Weiner was dropped off at the Massachusetts prison by his brother, Jason after saying his goodbyes to family. The prison, officially called The Federal Medical Center, Devens, specializes in treatment for sex offenders who have committed federal crimes, and Weiner’s lawyers are hoping he can get treatment there.

Anthony Weiner’s psychotherapist, Paul Kelly, believes that Weiner will benefit from treatment at Devens while he serves his time behind bars for sexting via Skype with a 15-year-old. Dr. Kelly suggested the facility to the judge and said he did not believe that, with treatment, Anthony Weiner will re-offend.

“Anthony possesses above average intelligence, he is engaged in learning to self-regulate more effectively, he has a sincere motivation to be a productive member of society, he is developing a strong social recovery supports system, he shows significant fortitude and persistence and is fully engaged in therapy.”

Anthony Weiner can be released early from the Ayer, Massachusetts, prison for good behavior. Sources say that a federal sentence can be shortened by 15 percent in such a circumstance.

Anthony Weiner spent his last day of freedom in his New York apartment with his father, Morton Weiner. Anthony Weiner’s brother, Jason Weiner, drove the disgraced former congressman to the Ayer, Massachusetts, prison where he will be living for the next 21 months. Anthony Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, remained in New York to drop their son, Jordan, off at school. Abedin will live as a single parent for the duration of Anthony Weiner’s stay behind bars.

This morning’s drive to the Devens prison in Ayer, Massachusetts, is the culmination of a long slide downhill for Anthony Weiner who at one time had the world at his feet. Anthony Weiner started his political career in the New York City Council and then made it to the U.S. House of Representatives when he started the behavior which would end his political career and likely his marriage to Huma Abedin.

Most of Anthony Weiner’s behavior was considered distasteful and inappropriate for an elected official, but he crossed the line into a criminal action when he engaged in sexting via Skype with a 15-year-old girl, a high school sophomore, knowing she was underage. The girl, whose name won’t be used as she is still a minor, turned over transcripts to investigators. In the documents, Anthony Weiner frequently says they should stop talking because it is wrong, yet he continues.

“When we would Skype, he would tell me that he was very lonely and that it had been a year since he and his wife [Huma] had sex, and that she really didn’t pay him any attention.”

The conversations escalated quickly and included Anthony Weiner asking the girl to take off her clothes and touch herself. Weiner also included talk of his fantasies.

“He had some rape fantasies. It would just be him showing up at my house when my dad was out of town,’ she said. ‘And just start undressing me, being forceful, asking me if I want to be dominated, strange questions.”

The sexting and Skyping relationship ended when the girl’s father learned of the online communications between Weiner and his daughter.

“I couldn’t stomach that,’ he said. ‘That really was the worst part I think, was knowing that inappropriate behavior was available to my daughter by this man.”

The Devens facility in Massachusetts has confirmed that Anthony Weiner has checked in to begin serving his 21-month sentence behind bars. The Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin divorce is still said to be pending.

Are you surprised that Huma Abedin didn’t drop Anthony Weiner off at the prison in Massachusetts to begin his 21-month sentence?
