In light of Anthony Weiner’s latest alleged sex scandal, in which he reportedly sexted a 15-year-old girl, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned it’s very possible for the former congressman to lose custody of his son, 4! After all, Anthony & his wife have officially split, and if he’s in the middle of a custody war, things are NOT looking good. Find out why here.
Anthony Weiner‘s, 52, latest alleged sex scandal may actually cost him his son! The disgraced former politician reportedly carried on a months-long relationship with an underage, unnamed girl in which he texted her shirtless selfies, bragged about his sexual prowess, and even revealed his rape fantasies with her, according to Daily Mail.
And for his alleged inappropriate behavior, Anthony is not only looking at jail time and a possible lawsuit if the allegations are true, but his relationship with his son, Jordan, 4, is also in major trouble as he could lose custody of his own child!
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with New York criminal defense attorney Steve Raiser, HollywoodLife.com learned just what may happen to Anthony and his son — especially if he and his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, 40, are going through a custody battle.
“If Anthony is in the middle of a custody battle then this would come up, and it would interfere with his ability to gain custody of his child because, from the court’s perspective, the judge would want to make sure that the child is put in the safest possible place and the best home,” Steve explained. “That is not going to be with someone who is messing around with teenage girls.”
And while at this point Anthony has not been found guilty of any charges, according to Steve, that doesn’t necessarily matter when it comes to a vicious custody war. “Even if Anthony is not found guilty of any charges, this could still interfere with his custody because all this information does not only apply to a criminal case, this is all evidence that can be used in custody proceedings,” the attorney told us. “It is going to cause any judge concern.”
Wow. So it looks like Anthony is in SERIOUS hot water — even if he’s not found guilty! But at this point, it looks like Anthony may very well be charged, IF the allegations turn out to be true. But just what would he be charged with in a situation like this? “Anthony Weiner could be guilty of endangering the welfare of a child if these allegations of him engaging in an online affair with a minor are true,” Steve explained.
“It is a criminal offense and if convicted of it he could face jail time. This would be an ‘A’ misdemeanor, which would be the highest level of misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail.” Yikes! Steve explained even further that a person is guilty of endangering the welfare of a child when he/she knowingly acts in a matter likely to be “injurious” to the physical, mental, or moral welfare of a child who is less than 17 years old.
“Right there, it’s a pretty clear case, they just have to prove it was actually her that was on the phone which looks like, based on the texts, is pretty easy to do,” Steve added.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Anthony should lose custody of Jordan in light of his various sex scandals?
