Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams battle over disgraced politico child sexting sentencing

Anthony Weiner was sentenced on Monday to 21 months in prison for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

The disgraced former congressman has until November 6 to report for his prison sentence, handed down after Weiner pleaded guilty to exchanging sexually explicit messages with a North Carolina high school student.

The judge was unmoved by Weiner’s claims that he is a “changed man,” declining that defense team’s request for probation.

In an appearance on Good Morning America Tuesday, CrimeOnline‘s Nancy Grace and legal analyst Dan Abrams went head-to-head over the sentencing news, with Abrams arguing that Weiner may have been given a harsher sentence because of his high profile and past indiscretions.

“He didn’t try and meet with this girl, there was no child porn found on his computer,” Abrams said.

CrimeOnline‘s Nancy Grace strongly disagreed that Weiner should have been given any leniency.

“For Dan Abrams to say this is not child porn? …He asked a girl to strip naked and fondle herself … he was looking at a ten year sentence,” Nancy said.

“Yes I’m disheartened. I’m very disheartened. And he will repeat offend.”

“With anything like this fact pattern Nancy, no one gets ten years,” Abrams replied, while adding:

“Let’s agree this is really bad. Let’s agree Anthony Weiner deserves prison time.”

Asked if Weiner deserves credit for pleading guilty, Nancy said, “He was caught red-handed. What else could he do?”

“Here’s the deal. He’s done this many, many times. He pled guilty to one time.”

“I am not impressed.”
