Anthony Weiner could face 15 years for child pornography

Allegedly sent sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.

Former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner could soon face child porn charges over sexually explicit messages he allegedly sent to a 15-year-old girl.

That’s according to a Wall Street Journal report.

If convicted on the most serious charge, production of child pornography, Weiner would face a mandatory 15-year sentence.

Sources told the Wall Street Journal Weiner’s attorney’s have been angling for a plea deal.

When the messages in question were discovered late last year the former Congressman released a statement saying in part, “I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position.”
