Weiner pleads guilty in teen sexting case

Weiner pleads guilty in teen sexting case”

Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, finally filed for divorce on Friday.

"I hope he goes to jail", Leathers told Inside Edition Friday, after the disgraced former congressman pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor.

"I'm relieved, I'm happy for the kid that he was talking to", Leathers said of Weiner's 15-year-old victim.

Weiner faces 21 to 27 months in prison, and will be required to register as a sex offender under the plea deal.

"He said, 'I have a sickness, but I don't have an excuse, ' which is like saying, 'It's not my fault, but I accept responsibility, '" Timpf said. "I apologise to everyone I have hurt".

"I entered intensive treatment, found the courage to take a moral inventory of my defects, and began a programme of recovery and mental health treatment that I continue to follow every day".

In court, Weiner admitted his "destructive impulses" had destroyed his life and career.

He surrendered to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in NY early Friday and appeared in court late-morning, telling U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska how he had communicated with the teenager, "as I had done and continued to do with adult women", according to his plea statement, which was released by his attorney. "Yet I remained in denial even as the world around me fell apart". "Weiner's conduct was not only reprehensible, but a federal crime, one for which he is now convicted and will be sentenced".

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.

Weiner ran unsuccessfully for mayor of NY in 2013 in a campaign that collapsed when Weiner, using the alias "Carlos Danger", again was found to be sending explicit photographs.

"I love him, I've forgiven him, I believe in him", she said.

In late October, just days before the election, FBI Director James Comey stunned the country by announcing that his agency was reopening its closed investigation into Clinton's handling of State Department business on a private email server so it could analyze the newly discovered correspondence.

She stood at his side in 2013, at a press conference after Weiner self-scuttled his mayoral candidacy by getting caught continuing to sext with multiple women.
