Judge Forces Anthony Weiner to Register as Sex Offender
A court order compels former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner to register as a Level 1 sex offender, following his release from prison for sexting an underage girl. (New York Post)

Bronx Supreme Court Judge Raymond Bruce gave the designation — assigned to pervs considered to have the lowest risk of re-offending on a three-level scale — based on the board of examiners’ review of Weiner’s case.

He said the panel had noted two risk factors — that the victim was aged between 11 and 16 and that she was a stranger — but that didn’t rise beyond Level 1.

Under the designation, only Weiner’s zip code will be made public.

Weiner, who has been holed up at a Bronx halfway house, didn’t appear at the hearing, where he was represented by an attorney.

After destroying his political career with sexting scandals and allegations of infidelity with grown women, authorities arrested Weiner in 2017 for sending salacious messages and explicit pictures to a 15-year-old child.
