Anthony Weiner will plead guilty in federal court to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor, two unnamed sources told The New York Times.

RELATED: All these people had very real opinions about a very fake email exchange between Hillary Clinton and Anthony Weiner.

Weiner’s expected guilty plea is part of a plea agreement. He was in FBI custody Friday morning.


An investigation was launched last September into reports that Weiner had been sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, The Times reported.

Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011 after explicit pictures in an unrelated case became public, CNN reported.
