Anthony Weiner is asking a judge to keep him out of prison

Attorneys for the disgraced former city Congressman say Weiner should be spared from prison because of a “deep sickness.”

Weiner pleaded guilty back in May to sexting with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

His lawyers also pinned blame on the girl, who told investigators she wanted to influence last year’s Presidential election.

Weiner’s estranged wife Huma Abedin was a top aide to Hillary Clinton.

The two also appeared at divorce hearing on Wednesday.

In a letter to the judge, Weiner said he regrets his actions.

He was registered as a sex offender earlier this year.

He faces more than two years in prison when he’s sentenced later this month.
