Disgraced former New York congressman, Anthony Weiner, is a free man after completing his sentence for sending sexually explicit text messages to a minor.

Weiner, who ran for New York Mayor back in 2013, served a 15-month sentence in federal prison before being released in February to complete his sentence in a Bronx halfway house. Weiner will now have to register as a sex offender for the next twenty years, but will only have to give an approximate location of where he lives due to his low Level One sex offender status.

Operating under the now infamous “Carlos Danger” alias, Weiner was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 after he admitted engaging in extramarital affairs with several women he met online. His bid for Mayor in 2013 also came to a sorry demise with Weiner receiving less than 5 percent of the vote after revelations he was still sexting women surfaced.

Speaking to reporters upon his release, Weiner shared, “I’m glad to be getting back to my family.”
