Leopard server validating serial stories dating after 50
The government urged the judge to put Weiner's claims of a therapeutic awakening in a context of a man who made similar claims after embarrassing, widely publicized interactions with adult women in the past.'This is not merely a 'sexting' case,' prosecutors wrote.He also says he should avoid jail time because he became a 'national pariah' after the FBI investigation into his sexting prompted the bureau to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server just days before the presidential election.Weiner's attorneys filed a lengthy court memo which was made public in full on Thursday documenting their client's years as a self-proclaimed 'sex addict' and asking a judge for leniency when the former congressman is sentenced for sending obscenity to a minor later this month.
As part of a plea bargain, Weiner has agreed not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months.
Prosecutors said Weiner, who unsuccessfully ran for mayor in 20, acknowledged to the evaluator an interest in legal, adult, teen-themed pornography.
The government said Weiner's 'widely-reported prior scandals' were not criminal in nature and did not involve minors but should be considered at sentencing because they reveal a familiar pattern.'He initially denied his conduct; he suffered personal and professional consequences; he publicly apologized and claimed reform.
It seemed harmless to Anthony...''[Weiner] has already been punished in a meaningful way by the government, just not in a judicially sanctioned manner,' said the memo.
What was supposed to be a confidential grand jury investigation into a personal offense was leaked by 'law enforcement sources' and then improperly injected into the presidential election by the then-FBI Director.''There can be no question that that these improper disclosures exacted significant extrajudicial punishment on Anthony and his family,' the memo continued.
In the memo, Weiner says he should be sentenced to probation – not prison time – because he has already faced severe 'extrajudicial punishment' and national disgrace after his case damaged Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign last year.
