Weiner visits his probation officer after halfway house exit

NEW YORK — Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner has visited his probation officer a day after leaving a halfway house following his prison sentence for illegal contact with a 15-year-old girl.

The 54-year-old Democrat did not comment Wednesday as he left the Manhattan federal courthouse where the Probation Department is located.

He was released from the halfway house Tuesday and was required to report to his probation officer within three days.

Weiner, who served in Congress for nearly 12 years, also must register as a sex offender.

He was sentenced in 2017 after pleading guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor.

His sentencing judge ordered three years of supervised release. As part of that, he is required to participate in a computer internet monitoring program and offer electronic devices for searches.
