As anticipated earlier today, former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner — whose Carlos Danger moniker has been synonymous with lewd online behavior since 2011 — has pleaded guilty on a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. He appeared in a Manhattan federal court, where he shed tears while apologizing to the 15-year-old girl who had accused him of sexting her and asking her (via Twitter and Skype) to remove her clothing.

Of his actions, Weiner reportedly told the courtroom, “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.” The Associated Press reports that Weiner has now agreed not to contest his eventual sentence (ranging from 21 to 27 months in prison, if prosecutors get their way). He must also register as a sex offender as well as surrender his passport and phone. NBC News has more of Weiner’s courtroom dialogue:

“Through approximately March 2016, I engaged in obscene communications with this teenager, including sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct, just as I had done and continued to do with adult women,” Weiner said. “I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful.”

Amid sobs, he said that last fall he “came to grips for the first time with the depths of my sickness. I had hit bottom,” and chose to enter “intensive treatment.” He then apologized to the girl.
