US Congressman Anthony Weiner set for prison stint for sexting conviction
NEW YORK - The Associated Press
The New York Democrat must surrender by 2 p.m. on Nov. 6 at Devens Federal Medical Center in Massachusetts to serve a 21-month prison sentence for illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl.
The facility in Ayer, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Boston, has over 1,000 inmates at the medical center and over 100 more at an adjacent minimum security satellite camp.
Weiner was sentenced in September by a judge who said Weiner’s crime resulted from a "very strong compulsion." A tearful Weiner said he was undergoing therapy and had been "a very sick man for a very long time."
