Weiner pleaded guilty to "transferring obscene material to a minor in May" after his relationship with the high school student was made public. Prosecutors said Weiner exchanged hundreds of messages with the girl and even asked her to "sexually perform" for him over Skype and Snapchat.
His legal team says the ex-Congressman is undergoing treatment and is "profoundly sorry" for subjecting the teen to his "deep sickness".
Weiner begins his prison sentence November 6.
