It is not known if she will attend his sentencing on Monday.

Weiner had pleaded guilty and the maximum sentencefor the charge was a prison sentence of up to ten years.

Days later, Weiner recanted his hacking story and admitted he sent the photo. Things seemed to be going well for Creepy Weiner-in 2013 he attempted a political comeback, running for mayor of NY, but that was short-lived when it was revealed that Creepy Weiner couldn't stop being a fucking creep and had been sending dirty photos to a 22-year-old woman under the pseudonym "Carlos Danger".

The pair then also had Skype calls where they would take their clothes off.

This was all happening under a veil of secrecy, even though Weiner's personal and professional life had been collapsing around him for half a decade.

Weiner resigned as a NY congressman in 2011 after he sent photos of himself, clad only in underwear, to 40,000 Twitter followers, when he was trying to send the photo to a woman. He originally said he was hacked but soon after admitted he had lied but that his marriage to Abedin was intact.

Weiner announced his resignation from Congress.

Six months later Abedin gave birth to their only child. He later ran for New York City mayor, but was unsuccessful.

"This crime was my rock bottom", Weiner said in court.

"With Anthony, I have repeatedly found myself in circumstances I never imagined", she wrote. Weiner asked for a no-jail punishment, blaming his behavior on a psychological illness.

Weiner's attorneys said his crimes were a "product of sickness" and maintained he wasn't a sexual predator.

Weiner was also fined $10,000.

Weiner's attorneys say he has finally received counseling for his issues.

Prosecutors wanted the disgraced Democrat to spend 21 to 27 months behind bars, arguing that his status as a repeat offender cast doubt on his claims that he had changed his ways.

"Something more and different is required, beyond personal and professional consequences, beyond the collateral consequences that he has faced before, beyond the scrutiny of the public, all of which have failed to sufficiently deter him in the past", she said.
