The fall from grace for disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) continues: he’s expected to plead guilty
on Friday at 11am, to charges that he sexted a minor last year.
Weiner has accepted a plea bargain, where he’ll admit to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. The charges faces 0 to 10 years in prison, and Weiner will likely have to register as a sex offender.
The former Congressman, and husband of key Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, first contacted his victim in January 2016, when she was a sophomore in high school.
Despite knowing that she was just fifteen years old, Weiner texted her shirtless photos of himself and lewd text messages.
After months of kinky online chat, over Skype video chat and text message, the victim said she “felt a little guilty” and told a teacher what she had been doing. She came forward to law enforcement after a photo of Weiner’s bulging underwear—with his own toddler son sleeping in bed next to him—was published in the New York Post.
