Anthony Weiner leaves court after guilty plea

Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner leaves his apartment building in New York

Prosecutors are asking for a prison sentence of 21 to 27 months.

"I destroyed my life's dream of public service", Weiner told U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska. He was required to relinquish his passport, and he was forbidden to leave the state of NY. The couple has one child together. Those emails were found as part of the ongoing probe of Weiner, officials told NBC News at the time. He admitted exchanging online messages with the girl beginning in January 2015 and "sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct". "I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful".

This fall, I came to grips for the first time with the depths of my sickness. "I had hit bottom". He then apologized to the girl.

Weiner, who could go to prison, pleaded guilty to a single count of transmitting obscene material to a minor. His lawyer can request leniency at a sentencing scheduled for September 8. Ultimately, the judge will decide Weiner's punishment.

The Daily News reported that Weiner cried as he read a four-paragraph statement at the Manhattan Federal Courthouse.

Weiner, once considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, had represented his congressional district in Brooklyn and Queens for nearly 12 years before a string of sexting scandals torpedoed his career.

She and her father said they agreed to talk out of concern that Weiner, who was driven out of Congress and the 2013 NY mayoral race due to highly publicized and sexually charged online relationships with other women, might be a threat to other underage girls.

USA authorities have been investigating reports that Weiner, 52, sent explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. "He's got to deal with it", she said. He allegedly used the nickname "T-Dog" with her.

Trump Reportedly Told Russians That Firing 'Nut Job' Comey Eased Investigation
In the remarks, Rosenstein said he learned a day before Comey's firing that Trump wanted to dismiss him. Some Democrats have alleged that Trump fired Comey in order to blunt the Russian Federation probe.

Anthony appeared in court the morning of May 19, and he was seen crying hysterically as he confessed the crime.

The charge carries a potential sentence of between zero and 10 years in prison, meaning Weiner could avoid prison.

But this scandal involved sexting with a minor - and led to criminal charges.

Weiner did not deny to exchanging "flirtatious" messages with the teen. His failed mayoral bid was the subject of the documentary "Weiner". He also sent The Associated Press a letter from the alleged victim's teacher that stated the girl had recanted her claims.

The former congressman is expected to enter the plea Friday.

Abedin separated from Weiner a year ago after he included a picture of their son in a sext.

After the new sexting allegations surfaced in 2016, Weiner announced that he was separating from Abedin, who has been working for Hillary Clinton since she first won an internship at the White House in 1996, when Clinton was first lady.
