UPDATED: Anthony Weiner has appeared in court, and read the following statement, as reported by NBC New York.
Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner will plead guilty to "transferring obscene materials to a minor, the New York Times.
Weiner, whose propensity to take and share photos of his penis lead him to resign from Congress in 2011, is appearing in a Manhattan federal court on Friday. He will plead guilty to sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
The Times explains that the charge carries a potential sentence of zero to 10 years in prison, but as a result of the plea, he could register as a sex offender and potentially avoid prison.
One of the obscene pictures discovered in this exchange with the minor was Anthony Weiner sexting a picture of his crotch lying in bed next to his four-year-old son.
