Weiner May Soon Hit The Slammer
According to an article published by the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday federal prosecutors are considering bringing child pornography charges against the disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner.
Weiner is accused of having sexually explicit conversations with a 15-year-old girl. The investigation started last year after the Daily Mail reported that Weiner had exhanged messages and photos with the 15-year-old girl.
From The Wall Street Journal:
In recent weeks, according to some of the people familiar with the matter, attorneys for Mr. Weiner have had discussions with federal prosecutors in Manhattan in hopes of dissuading them from bringing charges, or at least from bringing the most serious one: production of child pornography, which carries a 15-year mandatory minimum prison sentence upon conviction.
Anthony Weiner has claimed in the past that the New York Post was after him trying to catfish him online.
