Former US Representative Anthony Weiner is due to appear in federal court to face criminal charges in an investigation into his online communications with a teenage girl. He signed a plea agreement with prosecutors in which he agreed not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison. The charge he is expected to plead guilty to has a potential sentence of zero to 10 years in prison, and he will likely have to register as a sex offender. According to Weiner's plea, the conduct occurred between January and March.

He retreated into private life, raising his son with his wife Huma Abedin, a close adviser to Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

Wearing his wedding ring and a dark blue suit with a maroon tie, Weiner read from a prepared statement after U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska addressed him: "Tell me what you did, sir".

The Daily Mail reported in September that Weiner had exchanged pictures and sexual messages with a 15-year-old girl.

WikiLeaks tweeted: "UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a U.S. extradition warrant for Julian Assange". United States authorities have prepared charges to seek his arrest, U.S. officials familiar with the matter told CNN last month.

Abedin, a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton previous year, separated from Weiner in September after revelations he had sent more sexually charged messages online. The two married in 2010 and in June 2011 Weiner resigned from Congress, a month after the release of an explicit photo of him that he inadvertently posted on his Twitter account. Just days before the presidential election, then-FBI Director James Comey publicly informed Congress of the existence of the new emails pertaining to an investigation into Clinton. That investigation is what prompted the final review in October 2016 of Hillary Clinton's private server, ABC News reported a year ago. The Comey letters and late-in-the-election investigation have been blamed for Clinton's loss to President Donald Trump, The Los Angeles Times reported. Clinton has said Comey's decision is part of the reason she lost the election.
