Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer on Monday urged Cote to give Weiner a significant prison sentence to end his "tragic cycle" of sexting.
The 53-year-old pleaded guilty in May to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor after investigators found he had also exchanged explicit texts and photos with the 15-year-old and allegedly requested her to sexually perform for him on video. During his 2013 campaign to become New York's next mayor, Weiner was caught in another sexting scandal after sending explicit photos to a 22-year-old using the alias "Carlos Danger". As part of that agreement, he agreed not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months and will register as a sex offender. The charges stem from communications that the former congressman had with a 15-year-old girl on social media sites between January and March 2016.
His lawyers had asked a US District Judge for probation instead of jail.

With Anthony Weiner's sentencing set for Monday, the big question is: Will he go to prison? Days before the election, authorities announced that Abedin had been forwarding Weiner sensitive messages so he could print them-a revelation that reopened the probe into Clinton's decision to have a private email server while working as secretary of state.
Burnette Chapel Church Shooting
That church member then went to his vehicle , where he got his weapon to confront the shooter again. The extent of the injuries and other details about the victims were not immediately known.
A prison sentence would "promote respect for the law and serve as a deterrent to others who are considering a (similar) path", they say. The Daily Mail reported last September that Weiner had spent months flirting on apps like Confide and Kik with the girl, sending her shirtless pictures and saying he'd "bust that tight pussy so hard and so often". Investigators ultimately determined the emails were mostly ones they had previously seen and Clinton was ultimately cleared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation two days before the election. This prompted former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to reopen the probe into Clinton's emails, to which Clinton has partly attributed her loss of the 2016 election.
