Disgraced former congressman Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner has completed his sentence for sending sexual text messages to an underage girl.

“It’s good to be out,” Weiner said, with a heavy dose of optimism. “I hope to be able to live a life of integrity and service. I’m glad this chapter of my life is behind me.” But Weiner will remain registered as a level 1 sex offender — categorized as such because of a “low risk of repeat offense” despite his numerous indiscretions.

Weiner’s sentence came after a series of sexual indiscretions torpedoed his political aspirations, culminating in a conviction for “obscene” sexually explicit messages exchanged with a 15-year-old North Carolina girl. At his sentencing, Weiner, crying, called himself a “very sick man.”

Weiner was sentenced to 21 months, but was released after just 18 months for good behavior. He was further required pay a $10,000 fine, and register as a sex offender upon his release. Weiner and his wife reportedly sought a quiet divorce, settling privately to avoid “further embarrassment” to their son Jordan.
