Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case

19 Mai, 2017, 22:25 | Author: Claudine Rigal

United States authorities last year began investigating reports that Weiner sent explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized his laptop computer, finding a new cache of emails that Hillary Clinton had sent to Mr Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, a key adviser to the Democrat presidential candidate.

Former congressman Anthony Weiner is expected to appear in federal court Friday to plead guilty in a sexting case, according to a representative with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY.

The investigation into Weiner came to light after the Daily Mail published an interview with the teenager to whom Weiner allegedly sent the messages.

Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Pakistan to change lawyers after ICJ stays execution
India stated that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy. Responding to a question, Rohatgi asserted that the ICJ's interim verdict on Thursday was binding on both India and Pakistan.


The charge reportedly carries a potential sentence ranging up to 10 years in prison - though the former congressman also could avoid prison entirely.

The Democrat cried in court earlier Friday as he apologized for his behavior and said he had destroyed his "life's dream in public service". The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender. "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". She said that Weiner, then 51, carried out a monthslong sexually explicit conversation with her in which he asked her to undress and sent her semiclothed photos of himself. It reported that the messages, which began when the girl was a sophomore in high school, indicated Weiner knew she was a minor.

Abedin announced her separation from Weiner last summer after a new round of explicit messages emerged that included an image of Weiner's crotch as he lay in bed with their young son. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime.

The New York Times said information about the plea has not been made public but was released by two people who have been briefed on the matter and asked not to be identified. He said he ended the habit, but it resurfaced in 2013, leading him to pull out of the race for NY mayor that year. His failed mayoral bid was the subject of the documentary "Weiner".
