Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case

A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.

The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan says the Democrat will appear in court at 11 a.m. Friday.

In court, the 52-year-old former Democratic congressman paused repeatedly as he fought back tears and tried to compose himself.

The charge carries a sentence of up to 10 years, but Weiner could escape prison time if a judge rules in his favor.

The Daily Mail first reported Weiner's sexual messages with the girl in September.

"I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position".

The former Democratic congressman saw his political career implode after a series of scandals involving his inappropriate sexual exchanges with women online.

Anthony Weiner is expected to plead guilty in the sexting investigation against him. The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender.

NEW YORK (AP) - Former U.S. Rep.

Weiner ran for mayor of New York City in 2013, but dropped out after it was revealed that he had exchanged explicit messages with more women after he resigned from Congress.

The controversy over Clinton's use of a private email server while she was USA secretary of state dogged her throughout the campaign.

Officials began to investigate Weiner over the allegations past year, and the probe into Weiner even affected the 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton has said Comey's decision is part of the reason she lost the election. Mr Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Mrs Clinton could not be charged with a crime, but she partly blamed her election defeat to Republican Donald Trump on Mr Comey's announcement.

In testimony to Congress two weeks ago, Comey said he felt "mildly nauseous" at the suggestion his actions may have swayed the election, but added that he had no regrets.

Abedin, a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton past year, separated from Weiner in September after revelations he had sent more sexually charged messages online.
