Anthony Weiner to plead guilty in sexting case

Anthony Weiner leaves federal court Friday in New York. Weiner pleaded guilty to a charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor and could get years in prison

Anthony Weiner, a former USA congressman from New York and current democratic candidate for New York City Mayor, listens to fellow candidates speak at a debate held at the Museum of Tolerance in New York August 14, 2013.

Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner pled guilty in a NY federal court on Friday to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor for sexting a 15-year-old girl.

The judge accepted Weiner's guilty plea to a charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor, and he agreed to not appeal against any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

Democratic mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner makes his concession speech at Connolly's Pub in midtown Tuesday, September 10, 2013 in NY. His lawyer can request leniency at a sentencing scheduled for September 8. The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender. "This fall, I came to grips for the first time with the depths of my sickness". It reported that the messages, which began when the girl was a sophomore in high school, indicated Weiner knew she was a minor.

"I had hit bottom", he said.

He will enter the plea at 11 a.m., said David Schaefer, a spokesman for the law firm Covington & Burling, whose attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown, is representing Weiner.

"I have repeatedly demonstrated bad judgment about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent".

The criminal case involves a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina who told the Daily Mail last year that Weiner had been engaging in sexually explicit conversations with her online.

Weiner also claimed at the time that he was "likely" the subject of a hoax.

Weiner ran unsuccessfully for mayor of NY in 2013 in a campaign that collapsed when Weiner, using the alias "Carlos Danger", again was found to be sending explicit photographs.

The investigation prompted FBI agents to seize his laptop computer, which led to the discovery of a new cache of emails that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had sent to Huma Abedin, Weiner's wife. Abedin was not present at Friday's hearing, and a message left with a representative for her seeking comment Friday morning was not returned.
