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.
