Discussing Anthony Weiner’s Sentencing And His Future – Radio Transcript:
Announcer: It’s Quinn and Cantera on PIX106.
Quinn: 1-800-LAW-1010, 1800LAW1010.com. Chas Farcher from Martin, Harding and Mazzoti. Good morning, Chas.
Chas Farcher: Good morning, gentlemen.
Quinn: So it’s kind of…because we’re talking law, they just put a new seating section at Yankee Stadium. It’s pretty awesome. They’ve named it “The Judge’s Chambers.”
Canterat: Oh really.
Chas Farcher: Wow.
Cantera: What’s this…
Quinn: Because they’re a judge.
Cantera: Oh, gotcha, okay. So that’s great, okay.
Quinn: Pretty awesome right there, right?
Chas Farcher: I was not aware of that. It gives me good pause to tell all the bosses that I have to go to the judge’s chambers every other day.
Cantera: Right? Right?
Quinn: That’s great. We love it. I’m looking at Anthony Weiner crying his eyes out.
Cantera: Why did he cry? Why did Weiner cry?
Quinn: Because his whole life is going to be completely ruined. He even wore his wedding ring in there knowing full well that his wife is gonna file for divorce an hour later, Chas. Poor bastard.
Chas Farcher: Yeah, that’s right. So Anthony Weiner, back to sexting once again. Who would have thought?
Quinn: But the difference is the first one…
Cantera: Under-age one.
Quinn: …was an adult, but the second one was 15, right?
Chas Farcher: Yeah, so now you actually have, you know, a pretty good criminal case here. He’s been convicted of a crime. He’s plead guilty to, you know, sending obscene material to a minor. So now he’s facing some lengthy prison time. There’s a possibility of that now. We’ll find out in September when he goes to sentencing.
Quinn: Ballpark, time-wise. I mean, what do people get for that kind of thing?
Chas Farcher: Well, I mean, technically he’s…under the Federal sentencing guidelines, he’s facing either probation to as much as up to 10 years, but he signed a plea agreement and the prosecutors have recommended about 2 years of prison time. So there’s a recommendation from the prosecutor of 2 years, about 24 months. He’s agreed to that plea agreement. The final say comes from the judge, whether or not they accept that, give him more, give him less.
Quinn: Scoot in there just in time before the 2020 elections. We’ll get him a good running mate. He’ll run and he’ll win that presidency.
Cantera: So what…I haven’t looked closely at Weiner’s story …
Chas Farcher: It wouldn’t be the worst we have, I mean…
Cantera: Do we know what he sent? Is that out there and I just didn’t read it?
Quinn: I think it was nude photos.
Cantera: Of himself?
Quinn: Of his junk, is the way I was reading it, yeah. He had to tell…
Chas Farcher: I believe Anthony Weiner sent pictures of his wiener. So a Weiner was brought down by his wiener.
Quinn: He says, “Through approximately March 2016, I engaged in obscene communications with this teenager including sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct.” And then he started sobbing after he had to tell the judge that. Which I imagine was pretty tough to do for Weiner. I would have cried too if I were in that situation. The son of a bitch, he’s screwed!
Chas Farcher: Part of any plea agreement usually is confessing essentially to the crime that you’re pleading guilty to. It’s part of the court making sure you understand what you’re pleading guilty to, not just saying, “Yeah, I plead guilty.” So you’ve got to kind of recite some of the facts. But that’s certainly got to be uncomfortable.
Cantera: And he’s got to register.
Quinn: As a sex offender. Does that prohibit him from running for office, by the way?
Quinn: Does anybody know?
Cantera: There’s all kinds of sex offenders in politics.
Quinn: Well, I mean, you say that and I believe you.
Cantera: Yeah, no, it’s true.
Quinn: But I’d like to think that maybe there’s a chance he won’t be able to even be in his sweet love politics.
Cantera: First of all, what makes you think he would run again?
Quinn: Because he’s crazy like that.
Cantera: Who would vote for him?
Quinn: He’s crazy like that.
Cantera: Chas, would you vote for Anthony Weiner for anything?
Chas Farcher: No, but that’s probably before the sexting scandal I’d have put no.
Quinn: Oh man, the drawing, the court reporter drawing is …
Chas Farcher: He’s also got a divorce case coming up too now.
Quinn: What’s that?
Chas Farcher: He’s got a divorce case too, so, you know, as you mentioned his wife also immediately filed for divorce, so if and when he ever gets out he’ll be… He’s got more court problems coming up ahead of him too as well now.
Cantera: I feel like we’re piling on.
Quinn: Well, I mean, you know, he burned himself a couple times.
Cantera: He sure did.
Quinn: And it was some bad timing. And the whole stupid thing with the FBI and the thing with the stuff on his computer and then Comey having to release that before the elections and all that nonsense. He’s got a lot more to pay for.
Chas Farcher: We’ll find out, you know. It’ll be interesting to see how much time he actually does. Like I said, if the judge takes the recommendation of two years, then that’s what he gets. He signed a waiver of appeal saying he won’t appeal any sentence that’s in between 24 and 27 months. If the judge decides to give him more, and they may, because it’s a high-profile case and he’s a high-profile defendant, then he still has his right to appeal or file an appeal of the plea agreement that he’s accepted. So it’ll be… September 8th, I think, is the sentencing, so we’ll know more then.
Quinn: His dad and his brother joined him in court. His father and his brother.
Cantera: Thank you for the information. i don’t know what I’m thanking you for, Quinn.
Quinn: This is just, it must have been a horrible, horrible scene.
Chas Farcher: His dad and his brother joined him in court and now Jared from Subway will join him in prison.
Cantera: Chas Farcher from Martin, Harding and Mazzoti, 1-800-LAW-1010 and 1800LAW1010.com. Get over to the judge’s chambers.
Quinn: Thanks Chas.
Cantera: See ya, Chas.
Chas Farcher: Thanks a lot guys, have a great day.
Quinn: You too, buddy.
