Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case

Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case

Federal agents seized Weiner's laptop during the probe and discovered a batch of emails from his wife, Huma Abedin, a senior aide to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

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

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. A much longer lasting punishment: Weiner will likely have to register as a sex offender, according to The New York Times, barring him from going within 300 feet of schools, public parks and any facility "devoted to the use, care or supervision of minors".

A former Congressman has pleaded guilty to criminal charges in a sexting case. "I entered intensive treatment, found the courage to take a moral inventory of my defects, and began a program of recovery and mental health treatment that I continue to follow every day".




Former congressman Anthony Weiner has pleaded guilty to transmitting sexual material to a 15-year-old girl and faces years in prison. "This fall, I came to grips for the first time with the depths of my sickness".

CNN, citing law enforcement officials, reported last September that prosecutors in the office of then-US Attorney Preet Bharara issued a subpoena for Weiner's cell phone and other records as part of an investigation into alleged "sexting" with a purportedly underage girl.

Last year, he even sent salacious images of himself to a woman while his young son was next to him in bed - and visible in the shot. Clinton has said that Comey's announcement was part of why she lost the election.

The inquiry was brief, and Mr Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Mrs Clinton could not be charged, but she partly blamed her election loss to Republican Donald Trump on Mr Comey's announcement. Weiner ran for mayor of New York City in 2013 during which a similar sexting scandal unfolded. The failed mayoral bid is the subject of the documentary Weiner.
