Former Congressman Anthony Weiner was designated a Level 1 sex offender Friday by a judge in the Bronx, New York, where he has been living in a halfway house since his release from federal prison in February.
Weiner, 54, was convicted of having illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl in 2017. Weiner must register as a sex offender for a minimum of 20 years. He is required to verify his address every year, notify the state within 10 days of moving and visit a police station every three years to have a new picture taken. He’s due to be released from the halfway house on May 14 but still faces three years of court supervision. Due to the designation a Level 1, his information won’t show up in the state’s online sex offender registry but will be available by calling a telephone number.
