Disgraced NY congressman Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor and later on Friday, Huma Abedin filed for divorce in New York court.
Weiner surrendered to the FBI on Friday.
“I have a sickness but I do not have an excuse,” a tearful Weiner told the court.
The then-51-year-old began exchanging illicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina in January 2016.
The charge carries a sentence of up to ten years, but Weiner could avoid prison if a judge rules in his favor.
The case rocked the presidential race after James Comey said he was re-opening Clinton’s email probe in October 2016 when documents related to the case were found on Weiner’s laptop. They were sent by Abedin.
In March, Abedin said she and Weiner were “working hard” on their marriage, despite their separation.
