Weiner Released from Prison to Halfway House

Disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has been released from prison and sent to a re-entry program in New York.

Weiner was transferred to a residential re-entry center in Brooklyn to serve the remainder of his 21-month sentence for sending sexually explicit texts to a 15-year-old girl. Also known as halfway houses, they are intended to allow inmates to “gradually rebuild their ties to the community and facilitate supervising ex-offenders’ activities during this readjustment phase.”

He is set to be released from prison in May, about three months early, because of good behavior.
