'The defendant did far more than exchange typed words on a lifeless cellphone screen with a faceless stranger.'With full knowledge that he was communicating with a real 15-year-old girl, the defendant asked her to engage in sexually explicit conduct via Skype and Snapchat, where her body was on display, and where she was asked to sexually perform for him.
'That offense – transmitting obscenity to a minor to induce her to engage in sexually explicit conduct by video chat and photo – is far from mere 'sexting'.'Weiner's criminal conduct was very serious, and the sentence imposed should reflect that seriousness.'The document reveals that Weiner 'has acknowledged an interest in legal, adult, teen-themed pornography'.
Looks and age can have a great effect on earnings, but it’s not the only thing that matters.
Camming is a very social industry and models with great personalities will have greater earning potential.
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.
He finally came clean about the extent and scale of his sexting habit - but came close to blaming his victim for the sexting scandal.
It also set off a bombshell chain of events which led to Hillary Clinton - Abedin's boss - having her emails re-investigated by the FBI and the move announced just days before the election.
Clinton says the announcement of the new investigation, made by then FBI director James Comey, was one of the reasons she lost to Donald Trump.
Weiner’s sexting relationship with the underage girl was first revealed by Daily last September, and immediately prompted a federal investigation.
The former congressman has shown a 'dangerous level of denial' and 'lack of self-control' that could put other teenagers at risk, prosecutors said Wednesday.'Although the defendant's self-destructive path from United States Congressman to felon is indisputably sad, his crime is serious and his demonstrated need for deterrence is real,' said the memo filed by prosecutors with the U. District Court for the Southern District of New York.'The non-custodial sentence that Weiner proposes is simply inadequate; his crime deserves time in prison.'The 11-page document comes days before Weiner is sentenced for sexting the girl, who has not been named but has agreed to have her face show.
