(Newser) – Seems Anthony Weiner has been a good boy—for the first time in a while. The former Congress member is having his 21-month sentence for sexting with an underage girl reduced due to good conduct, the New York Post reports. The Federal Bureau of Prisons says Weiner's time at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., will be cut by three months. Parole doesn't exist in federal prison, but inmates can get up to 54 days off annually for behaving well. Weiner, 54—also known by his sexting aliases "T Dog" and "Carlos Danger"—is now set to be freed May 14, 2019, per Radar. (Last we heard, Weiner and Huma Abedin were settling their divorce out of court.)
