Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty To Sexting A Teenager

Weiner and his wife, top Hillary Clinton staffer Huma Abedin, separated in 2016.

He must register as a sex offender and faces a possible prison term.

Are his repeated online sex infractions - including his infamous underwear tweet - just symptoms of a sickness that should be treated, not punished?

"He said, 'I have a sickness, but I don't have an excuse, ' which is like saying, 'It's not my fault, but I accept responsibility, '" Timpf said.

"These destructive impulses brought great devastation to family and friends, and destroyed my life's dream of public service", Weiner said.

The plea deal appeared to seal the demise of a once-promising political career derailed by a series of scandals, stemming from what Weiner described in court as a compulsive need to seek sexual attention from women on social media.

Weiner could get years in prison for the offense.

FBI Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said, "We work every day in the FBI and law enforcement to stop adults from preying on vulnerable children".

Weiner surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday morning, the New York Times reported.

After Weiner pleaded guilty in the case, his attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown, said his client has accepted "full responsibility for the inappropriate, sexually explicit communications he engaged in early a year ago".

Under a plea agreement, prosecutors recommended that Weiner serve 21 to 27 months in jail.

Weiner apologized to "everyone I have hurt", including the girl he "mistreated so badly".

Weiner first came under FBI investigation for creeping on the high school student last September after she shared screen grabs and photos with the Daily Mail.

The FBI is investigating former congressman Anthony Weiner's online sexual relationship with a minor. Then, Comey said a few days later that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton should not be charged with a crime.

Huma Abedin, 40, is finally divorcing her estranged husband Anthony Weiner, 52, following his confession that he texted X-rated messages to a 15-year-old girl, as the New York Post reports.

Clinton's team blamed Comey's decision to release the documents ahead of the presidential voting as the reason for the Democrat's unexpected loss to President Donald Trump.

Clinton probably wishes Abedin had dumped Weiner, as it was his latest sexting scandal that plunged her presidential bid into chaos during the final weeks of the 2016 campaign.
