Anthony Weiner was released from a federal prison in Massachusetts and is now under the watch of a re-entry program in New York, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons records.
The disgraced ex-congressman served 15 months of his 21-month sentence at Federal Medical Center Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts, after pleading guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old girl.
Devens is one of two federal prisons that house sex offenders who volunteer for what the Federal Bureau of Prisons describes as “high-intensity programming” to prevent re-offending.
More from NBC News:
Weiner, 54, is now being supervised by the federal Residential Reentry Management in New York, records show. It is unclear if he is in a reentry center or under home confinement before his official release on May 14. A prison official told NBC News on Sunday that it does not disclose when inmates are moved.
Weiner pleaded guilty in May 2017 to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. As part of his plea agreement, Weiner must register as a sex offender. He must also pay a $10,000 fine and be under three years of supervised release.
