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.
