Huma Abedin files for divorce after husband's guilty plea

Weiner, 52, pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor - a crime that will require him to register as a sex offender and could mean years in prison.

"I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse", CNN quoted Wiener as saying. "I apologise to everyone I have hurt".

The British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mail first reported on the explicit texts that prompted the criminal case, based on images and descriptions provided by the teenage girl in North Carolina. A spokesperson with the Manhattan Supreme Court confirmed that Abedin, a close aide to Hillary Clinton, had filed court papers seeking a divorce.

Abedin announced she was separating from Weiner in August, just hours after his third sexting scandal came to light.

A court official told PEOPLE Weiner fought through tears as he read a statement in court. "These destructive impulses brought great devastation to my family and friends and destroyed my life's dream in public service". "And yet I remained in denial even as the world around me fell apart".

Weiner did not deny that he sent the messages, although he did initially suggest that he had been the victim of a "hoax".

In a statement, attorney Arlo Devlin-Brown said his client had "apologized, offered no excuses and made a commitment to make amends". Sentencing has been scheduled for September 8, 2017.

The charge carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison, but could involve no jail time depending on the determination of a judge.
