Former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner departs U.S. Federal Court, following his sentencing after pleading guilty to one count of sending obscene messages to a minor, ending an investigation into a "sexting" scandal that played a role in last year's U.S. presidential election, in NY, U.S., September 25, 2017.
The New York Daily News reports that Weiner has left the minimum security facility he's called home for the a year ago, the Federal Medical Center in Devins, Massachusetts, and is now "in a reentry center", working to acclimate back to normal life on the outside.
It's not immediately clear if Weiner is a free man, however.
The prison bureau and Weiner's lawyer didn't respond to emails seeking comment Sunday.
Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 over another scandal involving lewd messages, began his sentence at the Federal Medical Center Devens in MA in November 2017.
A few short years later, Weiner made a second foray into the public eye, this time running for mayor of New York City.
He must register as a sex offender, pay a $10,000 fine and complete three years of supervised release, according to the terms of his sentence.
Weiner initially claimed his account had been hacked, then admitted he'd had inappropriate online interactions with at least six other women while married to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
But his personal behavior was again his undoing after it was disclosed he sent explicit photos under the alias "Carlos Danger" to at least one woman after resigning from Congress.
Weiner ultimately garnered less than 5 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary.
The disgraced politician's lewd behaviour took a more disturbing turn, however, when he was busted in 2017 for sexting with a high school girl - despite knowing she was underage.
In September 2016, the FBI began investigating Weiner after the Daily Mail reported that he had exchanged obscene messages with an underage girl, who said he had asked her to undress on camera.
Abedin filed for divorce.
