Disgraced Former Congressman Anthony Weiner To Plead Guilty to Sexting With Minor

Share

Weiner agreed Friday not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

Weiner pleaded guilty to a charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor and could get years in prison.

"I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse", Weiner said.

In case you forgot, the FBI began investigating Anthony back in 2016 after a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina claimed she had exchanged lewd messages with the politician for months.

Baginski is said to also be slated to direct at least one episode for each season, adding to the ambition of the series spanning several seasons.

The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender.

Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the hearing. Trump and other Republicans accused her of endangering national security by exposing classified information to potential hacking.

The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after the 15-year-old from North Carolina told the Daily Mail she and Weiner had exchanged lewd messages for several months.

During the investigation into Weiner's alleged text message to the teen, at least one device had been found to have allegedly been used by both Weiner and his now estranged wife Huma Abedin, Clinton's aide. That eventually led authorities to confiscate Abedin and Weiner's personal electronics, which then led to former FBI director James Comey re-opening an investigation into Hillary Clinton's misuse of private email just days before the November presidential election.

Weiner, once considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, had represented his congressional district in Brooklyn and Queens for nearly 12 years before he stepped down in 2011 after admitting to sending sexually explicit social media messages and texts to women. "Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions" not to recommend criminal charges against Clinton, Comey wrote. Clinton has publicly stated that the announcement contributed to her losing the election.

He ran for New York City mayor in 2013 and was leading several polls until it was revealed he had continued his questionable behaviour.

Weiner's lawyer, Arlo Devlin Brown, didn't immediately return a message Friday. That bid was ruined when news broke that Weiner, using the alias "Carlos Danger", had sent explicit pictures to an IN woman.
