Anthony Weiner, disgraced former congressman, pleads guilty in 'sexting' case involving minor

The New York Times, citing an unnamed source, earlier reported that as part of a plea agreement, Weiner planned to plead guilty to the charge.
Anthony Weiner has been in and out of the news for the past six years after explicit images of the then-married USA congressman from NY began circulating around the internet in 2011.
KRISTEN DAHLGREN: One-time Congressman Anthony Weiner will soon have a new title, registered sex offender.
The 52-year-old former NY representative entered the plea in Manhattan District Court Friday afternoon to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. U.S. authorities have been investigating reports that Weiner, 52, sent explicit messages a year ago to a teenage girl in North Carolina. He also agreed to not file for an appeal of any sentencing that would land him anywhere between 21 and 27 months in prison. Weiner, the former Democratic congressman who is married to top #HillaryClinton aide #HumaAbedin, saw his political career derail because of a series of freaky sexting scandals. The story claimed, "Anthony Weiner carried on a months-long online sexual relationship with a troubled 15-year-old girl telling her she made him "hard, ' asking her to dress up in 'school-girl" outfits and pressing her to engage in 'rape fantasies'".
DAHLGREN: Weiner will be sentenced in September and one more blow in the stunning fall from grace, the serial sexter forced to surrender his smart phone.
DAHLGREN: In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress in disgrace over his first sexting scandal.

Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner is crying in court as he apologizes to the 15-year-old girl with whom he exchanged sexually explicit texts. He is expected to appear in a federal courtroom in Manhattan on Friday to enter the guilty plea.
August 29: Abedin says she is separating from Weiner.
During a federal investigation, agents seized a laptop that Weiner had shared with his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, who was a top Hillary Clinton aide. Clinton attributed her loss in the 2016 election to Comey's last minute disclosure. Then he came back for an attempted run at leading the city as mayor, and was sunk in part by another scandal.
May 29: A spokesman says Weiner's accounts were hacked and calls the burgeoning social media scandal "a distraction".
