Huma Abedin begs for mercy for ex-husband Anthony Weiner

Huma Abedin is begging a federal court to grant leniency to her estranged husband Anthony Weiner as he faces prison time for sending sexual materials to a 15-year-old girl, saying a light sentence would be in the best interests of the couple’s young son.

Weiner, who pleaded guilty in May to federal obscenity charges related to his online sexual relationship with the teenager, is scheduled to be sentenced later this month. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, but prosecutors have requested between 21 and 27 months.

Abedin, who filed for divorce last May, is now asking the court to go easy on Weiner in order to reduce the impact on their five-year-old son, Joshua.

    If she was really concerned about her young son she’d be requesting he stay locked up for the full 10 years. Since when does pedophilia merit a reduced sentence?

      Yes, sonny would be better off without pervert dad influence.

    Typo in the text — “estranged” should be changed to “deranged”.

    Democrat, politician…I’m surprised charges were even laid.

      Me too … guess his victims weren’t white.

    If his crime were strictly white collar, he would be off to one of the “Club Fed” camps. I see him going to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, which has been described as a nasty place just below supermax.

    His latest excuse was that it was Russian/White Supremacist Trump Supporters trying to upend the election.

    No, really. And in NYC that’s likely to fly.

  • Weiner should be given the 10-year max sentence. Disgusting guy, abject slave of his lowest passions. Shameless, perverted. On top of that, married a Muslima. No peace for the wicked.

    Huma’s just scared he might talk too much about her and Hillary in exchange for a light sentence…
