Huma Abedin files for divorce from Anthony Weiner

His wife, Huma Abedin, was not in court.

Prosecutors have said they will ask for Weiner to be sentenced to 21 to 27 months in prison under a plea agreement, which the newspaper said was finalized on May 10.

The 52-year-old former congressman added that while he has "a sickness", he does not have an excuse for his explicit communications with the high schooler, the news outlet reported. Weiner, who shed tears while apologizing to the teen, told the court that he had "a sickness".

Weiner, once considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, had represented his congressional district in Brooklyn and Queens for nearly 12 years before he stepped down in 2011 after admitting to sending sexually explicit social media messages and texts to women. He admitted to exchanging explicit photos and messages with women. He was forced to surrender his iPhone. "I knew that was morally wrong". In court, Weiner said he has started mental health treatment. Ultimately, the judge will decide Weiner's punishment.

The girl has said the relationship was "consensual" and that she did not want to press charges. He later said the emails were duplicates of earlier material already examined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. At the time, Abedin said in a statement, "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband".

Comey then stunned the public in October by announcing that some material he had found on Weiner's laptop had given him reason to reopen the closed investigation in Hillary Clinton's handling of State Department business on a private e-mail server. And though Comey ended that inquiry two days before the election, Clinton has partially blamed him for her loss. He later mounted an unsuccessful run for New York City mayor.

Weiner continued: "While I have provided the Daily Mail with information showing that I have likely been the subject of a hoax, I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position".
