Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty
Disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner shed tears in court on Friday as he pled guilty to sexting a 15-year-old girl.
He also agreed to serve time in prison and will have to register as a sex offender.
The oft-disgraced Congressman appeared before the judge Friday in NYC and was charged with transferring obscene material to a minor. Weiner, who cried and apologized in court, surrendered to the FBI following its investigation.
According to the terms of his plea deal … Weiner is agreeing to serve 21 to 27 months in prison, surrender his iPhone and pay a fine of up to $350,000. A judge will determine at a later date exactly what his sentence will be.
In court, Weiner admitted his “destructive impulses” had destroyed his life and career. He said he has a sickness “but I do not have an excuse” — and acknowledged he’d hit “rock bottom.” He added he’s “committed to making amends to all those I have harmed.”
Weiner traded sexually explicit texts with the teen, who lives in North Carolina and did not want to press charges because she felt the texting was consensual.
I’m going to need Anthony Weiner to keep that saaaame energy when he gets to prison that he had when his nasty behind was sexting a child. (Charlmagne voice)
