Former congressman Anthony Weiner pleads guilty in sexting case

Anthony Weiner leaves his apartment building in New York

Bloomberg News reported Weiner's plea agreement called for a sentence between 21 and 27 months.

The Democratic former US Representative apologised to the teenager, saying: "I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse".

The official wasn't authorized to speak about the plea bargain because the criminal charges had yet to be filed publicly with the court and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner plans to pleaded guilty in federal court on Friday, ending a case centered on allegations that he exchanged sexually explicit messages with a girl he knew was 15 years old between January and March of 2016, sources told The New York Times.

Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the court hearing, which was scheduled for 11 a.m.

The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after the 15-year-old from North Carolina told the Daily Mail she and Weiner had exchanged lewd messages for several months.

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.

The FBI in October said it was reviewing a new batch of emails that "appear to be pertinent" to its previous investigation into Clinton's use of a private server while she was secretary of state.

She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera. Clinton later blamed Comey's actions for her loss to Donald Trump in the election.

Weiner's lawyer, Arlo Devlin Brown, didn't immediately return a message Friday.

Weiner, who represented NY in Congress from 1999 to 2011, resigned after revelations that he was sending sexually explicit messages to multiple women.

Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after admitting to a series of online sexual relationships. His social media habits continued after leaving Congress and contributed to his poor showing with his 2013 New York City mayoral campaign, a race in which he had once been a leading contender.
