Anthony Weiner to Plead Guilty to End Sexting Scandal

Anthony Weiner to Plead Guilty to End Sexting ScandalAnthony Weiner is set to plead guilty in federal court Friday to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor, The New York Times reported. Weiner reportedly surrendered to authorities in New York early Friday morning and could possibly be registered as a sex offender as a result of the plea deal. The charge could also land the ex-congressman between zero and 10 years in prison, depending on the sentence determined by a judge. The charges came last year when it was revealed that, starting in January 2016, he had been exchanging sexually explicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner resigned from Congress five years earlier, after being caught sexting with women who were not his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin; and then a year after that, another extramarital sexting bout derailed his run for mayor of New York City.
