Anthony Weiner Will Do Prison Time In Massachusetts

Anthony Weiner will reportedly be spending his prison time for sexting minors at a federal medical center in Massachusetts.

The disgraced ex-congressman has been assigned to the Federal Medical Center, Devens, a federal medical center with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp and located in Ayer, Massachusetts, according to the New York Daily News.

He was sentenced to 21 months behind bars in September for sexually charged communications with teenage girls.

The medical center, located about an hour’s drive northwest of Boston, houses nearly 1,000 inmates.

It offers residential treatment programs for sex offenders, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons website.
