Transcript for Former Rep. Anthony Weiner sentenced in teen sexting scandal
So right before we went on air Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison for video sext. T he asked about probation and talked about his continued recovery from this illness that cost him his marriage, career and freedom. Have they taken his cell phone away? I think that sentence is appropriate. Had I've been the prosecutor I think I would have recommended even more. If you look at the facts of the case. Not only did he ask a 15-year-old to send pornographic images, he also said if you were 18 this is what I would do. He knew what he was doing. To seduce an underage person. There's such a high rate of recidivism. Explain that word. He'll do it over and over. Having put a lot of sexual predators is jail they don't do well in prison. I can't imagine he won't be in solitaire. The thing that got me aside from premed tags was the one he shot with his son. You've definitely want to keep that which is sacred if your life away from it. The idea he couldn't separate the two and his son was in his arms that's when I thought -- He's a sexual predator and he's sick. He's sick but he still needs to get punished.
