  • Anthony Weiner

The former Democratic congressman's promising political career imploded after a series of scandals involving inappropriate sexual exchanges with women online.

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".

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty Friday to transferring obscene material to a minor and will register as a sex offender.

Weiner cried in court as he apologized to the 15-year-old girl at the heart of the sexting case, The Associated Press reported.

Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the hearing. US authorities have been investigating reports that Weiner, 52, sent explicit messages a year ago to a teenage girl in North Carolina.

It is alleged that Weiner shared "rape fantasies" with the girl, and asked her to dress up in school uniform during their Skype conversations, which went on for several months. Phone messages left Friday with the North Carolina girl's father were not immediately returned.

On Friday, Weiner described his repeated transgressions as compulsive behavior and said that since past year he has been receiving "intensive" mental health treatment.

Arsene Wenger lauds tricky Alexis Sanchez after win over Southampton
Arsenal move up to 5th place after the win, a point ahead of Manchester United and three points behind Manchester City. Asked about Wenger's side finding their form at the right time , Mustafi replied: "Well I wish we found that before".


The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan said Weiner will appear in court at 11 a.m., though it would not confirm the charge or the plea. The offense "did not feature aggravating factors often present in cases of this kind".

The investigation led 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 Abedin.

In October, just days before the election, FBI director James Comey announced the bureau was reopening its closed investigation into whether ex-Secretary of State Clinton had used a private email server for classified documents in order to assess the newly-discovered correspondence.

Weiner, who represented parts of New York City for 12 years in the House of Representatives, resigned in 2011 after an explicit photograph was posted on his Twitter account.

Clinton recently attributed her election loss in part to Comey's announcement.

Two years later, he announced a run for New York City mayor but dropped out of the race when more explicit messages became public.

Weiner continued: "While I have provided the Daily Mail with information showing that I have likely been the subject of a hoax, I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position".
