Weiner pleads guilty, could get years in prison

The judge accepted Weiner's guilty plea to a charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor, and he agreed to not appeal against any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

Anthony Weiner, former U.S. Democrat Representative from NY, speaks to the media before the start of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 26, 2016.

Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner will appear in federal court to face criminal charges in an investigation of his online communications with a teenage girl in North Carolina.

Weiner was released on bail until his sentencing, which will take place at a hearing on September 8, according to a statement obtained by ABC News. The Daily Mail reported she said he sent her numerous photos, one of him in a pool and at least one bare-chested.

An investigation was launched last September into reports that Weiner had been sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, The Times reported.

And Huma will probably have no choice but to divorce Weiner if she wants to stay anywhere near Hillary Clinton; the former Democratic Presidential candidate simply won't tolerate having the wife of a registered sex offender in her inner circle, and she can't possibly have any love left for Weiner. Days before the November presidential election, now-former FBI director James Comey told Congress about the FBI investigation into emails between Clinton and her aides, The Times reported a year ago. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime. Clinton has publicly stated that the announcement contributed to her losing the election.

Weiner, who represented parts of New York City for 12 years in the House of Representatives, resigned in 2011 after an explicit photograph was posted on his Twitter account. That bid was ruined when news broke that Weiner, using the alias "Carlos Danger", had sent explicit pictures to an IN woman.

He ran for New York City mayor in 2013 and was leading several polls until it was revealed he had continued his questionable behaviour.
