Anthony Weiner pleads guilty to charge over sexting with a minor

N.Y congressman Anthony Weiner: “These destructive impulses brought great devastation to family and friends and destroyed my life’s dream.”


Former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), on Friday, pleaded guilty to transmitting sexually explicit images to a 15-year-old girl. The man whose self-imposed scandals ended his political career will likely serve jail time.

Prosecutors said they agreed to a prison term in prison of 21 – 27 months, but the final decision will be up to the judge.

The 52-year-old New York politician who reopened an FBI inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s emails ahead of the US presidential election was fighting back the tears. He apologized to the young woman and told Judge Loretta Preska who received his guilty plea “I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful. I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.”

Anthony Weiner met the girl on social media, and during two months in 2016, he had a sexting relationship with her. His wife Huma Abedin, top Hillary Clinton aide, separated from Weiner in late August, is filing for divorce, according to reports. CBS New York City’s affiliate reported that her attorneys are submitting the paperwork Friday, CBS New York City’s affiliate reported.

After the sexting story had broken last October, Weiner checked himself into a Tennessee sex addiction rehabilitation center

Under a plea agreement with the US attorney’s office in Manhattan, Weiner accepted his status as a sex offender and agreed to forfeit his cell phone.

Anthony Weiner was released on bond and is scheduled to sentenced on September 8.

“These destructive impulses brought great devastation to family and friends and destroyed my life’s dream of public service. And yet I remained in denial even as the world around me fell apart,” Weiner told the judge Preska.
