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┬ásaid she and Weiner were “working hard” on their marriage, despite their separation.
