Weiner, who served parts of New York City for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, resigned in 2011 after an explicit photograph was posted on his Twitter account.
Weiner's lawyers had been negotiating with federal prosecutors to avoid child pornography charges, the New York Daily News said. Weiner's brother was the only family in court to watch as he said he "hit bottom" and began therapy.
Pleading to the charge, which requires him to register as a sex offender, could bring a sentence of up to 10 years. "I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse", Weiner said through pauses and bouts of tears in an emotional statement.
Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the hearing.
Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner has pleaded guilty to transmitting sexual material to a minor and could get years in prison.
On Friday, Weiner described his repeated transgressions as compulsive behaviour and said that since a year ago he has been receiving "intensive" mental health treatment. He was in Federal Bureau of Investigation custody Friday morning after turning himself in, ABC News reported.
That same month, the FBI began investigating Weiner after the North Carolina girl told the news website DailyMail.com that she and Weiner had exchanged lewd messages for several months.
Officials began to investigate Weiner over the allegations past year, and the probe into Weiner even affected the 2016 presidential campaign. During the investigation into Weiner's alleged text message to the teen, at least one device had been found to have allegedly been used by both Weiner and his now estranged wife Huma Abedin, Clinton's aide. Abedin was among a tight-knit group that had an email address on Clinton's private server. Just days before the presidential election, then-FBI Director James Comey publicly informed Congress of the existence of the new emails pertaining to an investigation into Clinton.
Trump fired Comey days later amid the FBI's probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to defeat Clinton, an allegation he has vehemently denied.
