Anthony Weiner possibly sentenced up to 2 years for sexually interacting with a teenage girl!

So he had stopped in 2012, but started again 2016? Seem like a pattern.

The former United States Congressman Anthony Weiner, the Democratic Party member and former representative we’re today the Acting United States Attorney Joon H. Kim delivered the Government’s Sentencing Memo of his latest criminal case against Weiner. The Document that is delivered before his sentencing on the 25th September 2017. Since the case is so severe and the defendant knew what he did. Therefore, the punishment should be after those standards.

This is not merely a “sexting” case. (Def. Mem. at 37-43). The defendant did far more than exchange typed words on a lifeless cellphone screen with a faceless stranger. With full knowledge that he was communicating with a real 15-year-old girl, the defendant asked her to engage in sexually explicit conduct via Skype and Snapchat, where her body was on display, and where she was asked to sexually perform for him. (PSR ¶¶ 11, 12). That offense – transmitting obscenity to a minor to induce her to engage in sexually explicit conduct by video chat and photo – is far from mere “sexting.” Weiner’s criminal conduct was very serious, and the sentence imposed should reflect that seriousness”.

This here proves the acts of the politician, who should know better, as he was a member of legislators and also was somebody the public should look up to. Clearly, he lost his way, as he we’re getting engaged in a minor and using his grown-up capacity to lure her. This proves his ways of actually acting in a deprecating way.

The defendant’s submission repeatedly makes note of the 15-year-old Minor Victim’s various motives for communicating with Weiner and her profit from sharing those communications with the media. While careful not to cast blame on the Minor Victim outright or disclaim ultimate responsibility for his crime, he relies, in part, on the circumstances of their communications in arguing for a sentence of probation. That argument should be rejected, and Weiner should be sentenced for what he did – not what motived the Minor Victim. Weiner, a grown man, a father, and a former lawmaker, willfully and knowingly asked a 15-year-old girl to display her body and engage in sexually explicit conduct for him online. Such conduct warrants a meaningful sentence of incarceration”.

It’s hard to disagree on any part of this legal argument, as the 5-minutes of fame of the minor victim shouldn’t matter, as the politician used his position and knowledge, as well as personal history with these sorts of acts. Shows a pattern, also that he cannot help himself. That he even lures a minor victim to display her body to him online. He should have been more careful and considerate of his acts. As anyone should not go into this sort of acts, as sexually acts with a minor is breaking the law. A Congressman should know this. Even an ordinary citizen knows this. It would be betraying the law, by giving way for possible 5-minutes of fame for the victim, as that makes it acceptable to break the law. That sort of play, makes all crimes okay, as long as it makes you famous. Than, there would be less suits and court motions, whole industries built around the courts would go bankrupt by that argument alone.

Therefore, the possible time for serving behind bars makes sense:

As Weiner knew full well, the law unequivocally prohibits the online sexual exploitation of minors, no matter the app used to commit the crime or the apparent sophistication or motivation of the young teenager on the other end. The law must be respected to protect other teens from falling prey to the same conduct. The non-custodial sentence that the defendant requests would undercut this principle. A sentence within the range of 21 to 27 months would, by contrast, promote respect for the law and serve as a deterrent to others who are considering a path similar to that trodden by the defendant”.

That Anthony Weiner knew what he was doing is most likely. That he was liking what he was doing, also so. Since he also triggered the minor victim to do despicable acts. What is not surprising is that he trying to get mediocre or weak sentencing, since he as public figure should get lee-way. But the Judges thinks the principals and law should apply to him as anyone else. So that people would respect the rule of law. Also proving the public that this sort of behavior could have you punished.

We can hope that Weiner becomes state property for a long while, as an example of people should prey on minors or teenage girls to do sexually explicit acts. This sort of acts should be punished and done to honor the laws and the principals of justice. That the Southern District of New York wish to apply the sentence between 21 to 27 months, which is over a 1 ½ year or over 2 years in prison for what he did. That sort of example will prove that this far from acceptable and no one should be involved in this. Unless, it is to conceding adults who are doing it. So if Weiner was doing this with an adult woman, who wanted to this, than it would be okay. Not morally as a married man, but from a legal standpoint. Peace.

Lord Mayor Lukwago on a unlawful House-Arrest for the 8 Day; while Museveni have a lavish celebration at Kololo!

Gen. Sejusa 11.05.2016 Arrest Lukwago

The dark shaddow over the day is knowing that so many of Opposition is unlawfully detained and silenced as the giant feast is happening at Kololo. The country is diveded between the men and woman who lavishly have it all and the ones who doesn’t have basic rights even. Therefore the UCC and Government had to even ban Social Media and make the words of mouth silenced, though there ways of countering that.

Still, and still! The Lord Mayor are behind bars in his own home, still without charge or warrent, his words says it all. Take a look!

Lukwago 10.05.2016

Statement by Erias Lukwago today:

“DAY 8 OF HOUSE ARREST. It’s certainly a day that will live in infamy. You cannot drag a young nation into a devastating 5 year guerrilla war and renege on the promise to restore a sustainable constitutional order that would guarantee orderly succession to power; bastardize the entire nation and turn it into a personal estate; organise sham elections and entrench a personal rule for 30 solid years; institutionalise a reign of terror, persecute and humiliate your political opponents, including your contemporaries like Dr. Besigye, Gen. Ssejusa, Gen. Muntu, Mbabazi etc; and then, majestically match to the Kololo independence grounds, stand by the graveyard where the remains of Yusuf Lule and Ignatius Musaazi were interred and proclaim that you derive inspiration from the likes of Mugabe, Nguema, Idris Debby, Santos, Biya etc. With all due respect, Sir, I wouldn’t attend that function even if I had not been incarcerated at home” (Luwkago, 12.05.2016). 

Lord Mayor Lukwago on House-Arrest on the Seventh Day – Celebrates his birthday in incarceration!

Lukwago 11.05.2016 P1

This here is never-ending saga as he now feeling the same as Dr. Kizza Besigye, Besigye was last time 40 days under House-Arrest in Kasangati. Now it’s been 7 days for both of them. The leaders of Forum for Democratic Change are under siege and their homes are not free as the country is neither free and under the control of President Museveni. Who shows no mercy towards his opposition and the ones who are not loyal to him.

Still it is good to see that the Police Officers open the doors to fellow citizens to greet the Lord Mayor as they could have done what they do in Kasangati. In Kasangati anybody who tries to visit Besigye get Detained! So this here is something positive in the midst of darkness.

Well, here is his statement and read it.

Statement from Lord Mayor Lukwago: 

“DAY 7 OF HOUSE ARREST. What would ordinarily be a special day on my personal calendar unfolds with such uncanny feelings, pondering how it is going to be yet another vile experience in my life as I commemorate my 46th BIRTHDAY anniversary under illegal incarceration. I was on the brink of flipping the lid and vent out my anguish on this Platform, but then I reminded myself that great icons of civil liberties like Mandela did not have the luxury of celebrating such memorable events in one’s lifetime for over two decades. The only one little thing that has given me a fresh heart, though, is the sweet mother-to-child telephone conversation I have had this morning with HAJJAT SALMA NAKAYAGA. At the tail end of the said soothing talk she quipped, in a rather frail and resigned voince; ”YASI (she has fondly called me like that since childhood) nze ensonga z’omusajja oyo akutulugunya nazikwasa munyazimungu yatalemelerwa”( I placed the controversial matters concerning you and your chief tomentor in the able hands of the almighty). I should also acknowledge the kind gesture of my dear sister, Hon. Mp Bakireke Nambooze, Hon. Moses Kasibante, some Authority councillors, city mayors and a score of other friends and relatives, who paid me a courtesy call and generously brought lots of foodstuffs for my persecuted family. Of course, I can’t forget all of you, my amazing friends; your unflinching support and encouragement has definitely enabled me to soldier on against all odds. Together we shall overcome what apparently many pessimists perceive to be insurmountable challenges. For God and My Country” (Lukwago, 11.05.2016). 

Lukwago 11.05.2016 P3

I think that is enough for now. Congratulation on your day Lord Mayor Lukwago and you shall overcome! Peace.
