He's been living there for three months and will remain registered as a Level 1 sex offender.

He told reporters Tuesday morning that he hopes to "live a life of integrity and service".

He'd been living in the halfway house since February after serving prison time in MA.

As part of his sentence, Weiner has been designated as a low-level sex offender.

Although both incidents were clearly inappropriate and unethical, Weiner escaped criminal prosecution until 2017, when federal agents discovered he had again been texting with a female, but this time, she was a minor in Kentucky, and Weiner's sexually aggressive texts - which included photos - ran afoul of federal laws against sending salacious material across state lines.

Weiner's lawyer said the former lawmaker likely exchanged thousands of messages with hundreds of women over the years and was communicating with up to 19 women when he encountered the teenager.

Weiner later apologized to the girl, who was a high school student in North Carolina at the time, and called the crime his "rock bottom" at his sentencing.

In 2013, after hiding out for two years, Weiner tried to re-enter politics, this time running for mayor of New York City. In October, Weiner was granted a release date three months earlier than the initially scheduled date of August 2019 due to good behavior.

Abedin filed for divorce from Weiner in 2017. The ensuing fallout led to then FBI Director James Comey reopening the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while Secretary of State just over a week before the 2016 presidential election.
