Former disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty on Friday to sending obscene material to an underage 15-year-old girl.
“I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse,” he said.
Weiner had sent pornographic videos and made requests that the girl be nude and masturbate. He used the alias “T Dog” with her.
Weiner, 52, pleaded guilty in Federal District Court in lower Manhattan to transferring obscene material to a minor. Under a plea agreement, prosecutors asked he serve 21 to 27 months behind bars. He must also register as a sex offender.
He also had to surrender his passport and iPhone, and agreed not to leave New York before his sentencing, according to NBC New York.
“I apologize to everyone I have hurt,” Weiner added in his admission to the court. “I apologize to the teenage girl, whom I mistreated so badly.”
