Weiner's attorneys said he continually sexted with women between 20 and did not take therapy seriously at the time, despite the destruction to his political career and his public claims that he was in treatment.The scale of his sexting means that the images which have emerged - one of him in bed in a state of arousal with his son beside him - hardly qualify as even the tip of the iceberg.In the 68-page memo, Weiner's legal team admits that in early 2016 the former congressman was exchanging thousands of messages a month with 'dozens' of women he met online, including at least 1,500 messages with one middle-aged woman over the course of just two months.
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.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.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.Although the girl told Weiner she was in high school, the former congressman told her in messages that she made him 'hard' and said he wanted to 'bust that tight p***y so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week.'The teenager said in an interview that Weiner would also chat with her on a video messaging program, during which he asked her to dress up as a school girl and talked about his 'rape fantasies.' Weiner also sent her photos of him shirtless and posing provocatively.
The story prompted an FBI investigation into Weiner, during which investigators stumbled across previously undisclosed emails from Clinton's private email server on Weiner's laptop.
It says his 'self-destructive compulsion' was driven by mental illness, including a 'mixed personality disorder' that was recently diagnosed by a therapist. It says their relationship started when Weiner was stuck at home in New York during a record blizzard and claims that she pestered him to Skype.
Weiner's memo also describes the 15-year-old girl as a manipulative fame-seeker – writing that she baited Weiner into exchanging sexual messages with her because she wanted to influence the U. The FBI launched an investigation into Weiner's communications with the teen after Daily revealed it last September.
Anthony Weiner is finally coming clean about his double life as a serial sexter – admitting that he has had online affairs with 'hundreds of women' since 2009 and knowingly engaged in at least two explicit video chats with an underage girl.
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.
The former congressman blames leakers in the FBI – and former FBI Director Comey – for injecting his case into the election and causing Weiner and his family extreme duress.'By 2009, Anthony's national prominence had reached new heights...
