Anthony Weiner Sentenced To Prison

Anthony Weiner’s statement before a sentence of 21 months in prison was pronounced:

“I acted not only unlawfully but immorally, and if I had done the right thing, I would not be standing before you today,” he said, crying as he addressed the judge.

“The prosecutors are skeptical that I have truly changed and I don’t blame them,” he said. “I repeatedly acted in an obviously destructive way when I was caught.”

He then pled for probation:

“I victimized a young person who deserved better,” Weiner said in court. “I am not asking that I be trusted … I ask you for the opportunity on probation to keep my sworn oath.”

NYC mayor and former political rival Bill de Blasio commented that “…it’s time for us to all stop talking about it….Let’s leave his family in peace and let’s go on.”

  1. I feel sorry for people with problems like this, but I feel more for their families, and I don’t believe Weiner is truly sorry except for getting caught.
