Former Ney York Congressman Anthony Weiner pled guilty yesterday to texting inappropriate images to a 15-year old child. Weiner surrendered to federal authorities and struck a plea deal that will most likely require jail time and that he registers as a sex offender.
Soon after giving his guilty plea, his wife filed for divorce. Wiener has had multiple allegations of cheating, but texting and sending pics to a minor was the last straw for his wife, who has stood by his side against every allegation prior. “I have a sickness, but I have no excuses,” Weiner told U.S. District judge Loretta A. Preska. Weiner said that he had sexual conversations with women that reached out to him on social media. His sentencing hearing is September 8, where he faces 21-27 months in prison.
