Lawyers for Anthony Weiner Ask Judge for Leniency Ahead of Sentencing

Weiner pleaded guilty back in May to sexting with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
Weiner's latest sexting scandal erupted during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
The document also reportedly noted that the teen told investigators she had hoped "somehow to influence the US presidential election, in addition to securing personal profit".
The memo alleges the girl was "looking to generate material for a book the Government has disclosed she is now shopping to publishers", the filing says.
"In January 2016, Anthony Weiner, at the depths of an uncontrolled sickness, was compulsively responding from his Manhattan apartment to all corners who contacted him over the Internet", the memo states. They argued Weiner should be sentenced to probation, including mental health treatment, and perform community service.
Abedin announced that she was separating from Weiner last summer, after a woman came forward to say Weiner had sent her a provocative photo of his crotch while he was lying in bed with his young son.
"This is not a letter I ever imagined I would write, but, with Anthony, I have repeatedly found myself in circumstances I never imagined", Abedin wrote in her letter, the public version of which was heavily redacted.

After news of the scandal surfaced, federal authorities opened an investigation, and the FBI seized Weiner's laptop. "Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions" not to recommend criminal charges against Clinton, Comey wrote.
Ms Clinton partly credits Mr Comey with having cost her the election.
Weiner "has already been punished in a meaningful way by the government, just not in a judicially sanctioned manner", his lawyers wrote in the memo.
"The instant federal investigation was properly launched, and then, quite improperly, injected into the U.S. presidential election, quite possibly affecting its outcome", Weiner's lawyers wrote.
Weiner and Abedin also appeared in court together at a divorce hearing earlier in the day on Wednesday. The judge overseeing the case encouraged the pair to try to reach an amicable resolution.
"Given the unusual circumstances of this offense and the ability of a sentence without incarceration to impose just and meaningful punishment while permitting continued treatment, a non-incarceratory sentence of the kind proposed above would be "sufficient but not greater than necessary" to satisfy the goals of sentencing".
