Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty To One Federal Sex Crime, Faces Jail; Huma Abedin Files For Divorce

Disgraced six-term former New York congressman Anthony Weiner will lose both his freedom, his marriage and perhaps even parental rights after he pleaded guilty in a Manhattan federal courtroom to one federal charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor.

Weiner took responsibility for his crime, stating that while he had what he characterized as a sickness, he does "not have an excuse."

Weiner's guilty plea concerns his transmission of sexual material to a minor, and in this case, to a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner agreed not to appeal a sentence which falls within the range of 21 to 27 months. This means that, absent leniency from the judge, Weiner likely faces federal prison time. Weiner likely will also have to register as a sex offender and that may impact his future custody and visitation rights with his young son with wife Huma Abedin.

While defendants and prosecutors can negotiate such deals in order to secure a guilty plea and ensure certain charges are not filed, sentencing decisions remain exclusively those of the judge who may disregard both sentencing guidelines and prosecutors' recommendations for leniency.

In addition, parole does not exist in the federal prison system. Incarcerated defendants must serve at least 85 percent of their sentence.

On the heels of his guilty plea, Abedin reportedly filed on Friday for divorce in Manhattan state Supreme Court.

Weiner's latest perverted exploits came to light after a camera shot of Weiner apparently amusing himself, with their son in the background, surfaced. Weiner was then connected to a federal inquiry into whether he received classified material from his wife Abedin while she was chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Weiner's sexting problems first surfaced in 2011 and led to his resignation that year from the House of Representatives after he became one of that body's foremost authorities on health care insurance reform. It was at that time that Weiner's

Later, Weiner ran for the Democratic nomination for New York City Mayor in 2013 and was leading the polls until new sexting activity emerged. Those new revelations included the news that Weiner used an alias "Carlos Danger" for his escapades. Revelations in federal court today included Weiner also adopting an alias for his new pursuits.
