Anthony Weiner Issues Guilty Plea to Obscenity Charge
Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017
On Friday, former US representative Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty pleaded guilty to a single count of transmitting obscene material to a minor. In his plea, Weiner also admitted to "sharing explicit images and encouraging the minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct." The charge, which requires the 52-year-old to register as a sex offender, could bring a sentence of up to 10 years. However, officials say that Weiner is likely to serve a much shorter term if he is sentenced, due to his signing of a plea agreement in which he agreed not to appeal any jail sentence between 21 and 27 months.
