WEINER PLEADS GUILTY TO ‘SEXTING’ WITH MINOR
Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty Friday to transmitting obscene material to a minor, tearfully apologizing for communications with a 15-year-old girl that he said destroyed his “life’s dream in public service.”
Weiner admitted exchanging online messages with the girl and “sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct.”
The charge could bring a sentence of up to 10 years. His lawyer can request leniency at his sentencing Sept. 8.
