Former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s spectacular fall from grace ended in a New York courtroom today. Weiner, 52, pled guilty to federal charges of transmitting sexual material to a minor and could face a long prison term.

Weiner, who resigned from Congress over a prior sexting scandal, also pled guilty to a federal obscenity charge. Weiner was charged with sending a series of sexually explicit pictures and messages to a 15-year-old North Carolina girl last year.

The ensuing investigation into that sordid case entangled Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the case after federal investigators found Clinton’s classified emails on Weiner’s laptop.

Weiner broke down in tears when the judge asked him to describe what he had done to the girl in open court on Friday.

“I engaged in obscene communications with this teenager,” said Weiner, his voice shaking and his body trembling, according to the NY TImes. He said the communications “included sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct.”

Weiner was ordered to register as a sex offender where he works and lives, and he faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on Sept. 8.

In related news, Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin — Clinton’s trusted aide — filed for divorce, the NY Post reported on Friday.

    He just got caught. I wonder when Trump’s obscenities will be broadcasted ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    10 years in prison would be a bit much, IMO. Not a good use of taxpayer dollars.
    I’ve seen people kill folks and not get 10 years. I’d say 4-6 months for him maybe, a fine, and probation.

    Smh

  • goat

    Nah, punishment for sex crimes against kids and women don’t need to be lenient. We’re already seeing how people devalue the lives of women and kids. Especially black women and kids.

  • T Kenny

    SHAME!!!!!! Even worse than once thought of before.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Fair enough, but he and his family have money, so I’m guessing he’s not going to get such a long sentence anyway. We all know rich man’s justice is very different from poor man’s justice. If he gets more than 2 or 3 years I’d be surprised.

  • goat

    In his case he’ll probably get a slap on the wrist. We’ve seen how this system favor a person like him when it comes to sex crimes.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    True he didn’t touch the girl and plus he has to register as a se xx offender and his reputation is garbage now. I doubt he’ll be able to get a job at McDonald’s. So about 6 mths in jail and a long probation is enough

  • JV

    He’s not getting 10. That’d be nice, but no. Per HuffPost:

    “As part of his plea deal, he faces between 21 months and 27 months in prison. If sentenced to fewer than 27 months, he won’t be allowed to appeal”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/anthony-weiner-sexting-minor_us_591ee9fde4b034684b0ba34f?ohw&ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009

    He also has to register as a sex offender, naturally.

  • JV

    He should also have been charged for child endangerment in my opinion, at the very least, for that pic he took with his kid in it (he was in his underwear, it was graphic)

  • JV

    3 years in federal prison isn’t bad, I can see an argument that he deserves a lot more than that.

  • stav

    Right! I don’t call it the justice system at all, I call it the “Just us” system and the us does not refer to non whites!

    Another headline to distract from the fact that the Special Council is looking at Jared Kushner.

  • tintin

    These politicians forever making pussy ruin their lives. And now he’s a sex offender.

    Sad to say but I see a possibility of suicide in this case. He’s a disgrace

  • dontgetblocked

    So Hillary Clinton’s trusted aid is married to a pedophile and Hillary is married to a pervert who used his power to lure an intern into giving him bjs. Remind me again …why someone would want to vote for old lady Hillary and her crew of perverts.

  • dontgetblocked

    It’s not too much if it was your teenage daughter. Believe me, there are other victims…girls he’s probably had sex with. A teenage prostitute or a relative. Dangerous man.

  • Malcom Flex

    Anyone that messes with children is the devil and I don’t care what their race, gender, political, or religious affiliations are. Off with his head.

    She was 15 years old and willfully sending pictures also. Not taking up for him but there’s a lot of fast a** girls out there that cry wolf when they get caught.

  • Mel

    See Anthony I gave u a pass the first time but then when this came out I said oh hell naw and you knew she was a teen what did U think she was going to keep it a secret? And how the hell did a 15yr old and this man start talking to begin with? Parents need to do better raise your kids to know better even when you’re at work

  • Mel

    Really? What they looking at him for he touching kids too? Ain’t he a Je.. nvm

    Jared’s contacts with Russians which he ‘forgot’ when he was completing his security clearance for the White House.

  • stanhope

    I should open a vaseline concession in the commissary near his cell…oh that’s right he has no money and was living off his wife….well Bubba gonna tear that thang up.

  • Hmmm~?

    He’s lost everything and I know he isn’t going to last 10 years in prison. He likely will commit suicide.

  • You already know ?

    Sad to say but therapy want help him he is a sick predatory Munster!…?????

  • BlueHousen

    For more the reason the adult has to step up and be the adult and not engage misguided teens.

  • Mojo2

    Too strange!? He’s a democrat and they don’t usually go to jail. They always circle the wagons on their own. Something is WAY up and I don’t mean his appendage. Can’t wait to see what fuckery unfolds with this case. I don’t think he’ll last long. ….. in jail

  • Mojo2

    52 vs 15. SMDH. Evil pervert

    So weak. NO names. No mention of even the entity they’re referring to. “People familiar with the case” LOL. brilliant. You really need to learn where to get your news from . WP ain’t it.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    At 15 the part of the brain that controls logic isn’t completely developed. So yeah, she made a bad decision but him on the other other hand, knew exactly what he was doing.

  • the guest

    Truth be told he low key cost Hillary the election.

    This is payback.

  • the guest

    He was “babysitting” his own child while his wife worked and while their 4 month old napped next to him he was philandering on the internet with minors. Unbelievably brazen so you know he’s a total sicko.

  • the guest

    Never going to happen in America because human worth is based on economics. America considers women and kids low ranking commodities.

    Between welfare & healthcare subsidies, America takes care of poor women and children of all races & backgrounds. You should move to Muslim nations where women can’t drive and considered less than men and young girls are forced into arranged marriages with grown men.

    President Trump has made comments about grown women, not sexting underaged girls. See the difference.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Weiner resigned from Congress over four years ago.
    This is just a distraction from all of the news that came out about Trump yesterday.

  • Faux Gibbler

    His court hearing was yesterday for the new texts with 15 year old girl.
    Believe what you want. By the way- CNN is talking about Trump 24/7.

  • Mojo2

    Costing Hillary the election!? Goodby
    Mr Weiner may u RIP, she don’t like your shading her. So now u are a marked man, its just a matter of time.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Again Trump has been president for less than four months and an independent prosecutor has been already named to investigate him and his associates.

    The White House staff is already lawyering up although if Mueller makes a deal with Flynn and if Flynn has the goods on Trump and Manafort,Page, and Carter Trump’s presidency will be over by summer even if he isn’t impeached.

    He will crawl along like Chris Christie has since Bridgegate.

  • Mbailey

    IF his wife were not attached to a powerfully political person, such as Hillary Clinton; I think some of this would have been swept under the rug. But the media and Trump kept trying to attach the deeds of Huma’s husband to Hillary and Bill. Huma should have gotten out if it would have helped this man, any.

  • FoodLady

    I think they will probably make Bubba behave and leave Anthony alone — too much of a scandal if it gets out that the prison let a rich white
