Weiner pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor at a federal courthouse in Brooklyn in May 2017, and was sentenced to 21 months in prison.
Inmates confined to residential re-entry centers - sometimes known as halfway houses - receive employment and health care services and may only leave the facility for approved activities, the Bureau of Prisons advises.
Weiner is now scheduled to be released on May 14th according to the bureau of prisons.
Weiner transmitted lewd messages and photos of himself to a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina who has not been publicly identified. Federal prosecutors in NY referred an inquiry to the prison bureau.
Weiner has a long history of sexting issues, but his habit became criminal when he began chatting with a North Carolina high schooler on January 23, 2016. His sentence was reduced by three months for good behavior, CNN reported.

In 2013, Weiner tried to revive his political career with a run for NY mayor but new reports that he had sent sexually suggestive photos to women other than his wife surfaced just months after he announced his candidacy.
In addition to his prison sentence, Weiner is also subject to three years of supervised release and is required to register as a sex offender. While investigating Weiner's alleged crimes, the FBI found 141,000 emails on Weiner's laptop it believed potentially relevant to the Clinton investigation.
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.
Clinton has blamed her loss in part on the FBI's decision to re-open that investigation.
A once-rising star in the Democratic Party who served almost 12 years in Congress, Weiner had a dramatic and sordid fall from grace after he sent a lewd picture of himself to a college student over Twitter in 2011.
Two years later, his comeback bid to become New York City's mayor was torpedoed by revelations he sexted with another woman under the pseudonym "Carlos Danger".
