May have to register as a sex offender.

*UPDATE* Weiner has pleaded guilty and the judge said “he would have to register as a sex offender.

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner has decided to enter a guilty plea in federal court for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner surrendered to the FBI Friday morning, officials familiar with the matter said, and will plead guilty to one count related to transferring obscene material to a minor. Prosecutors are expected to recommend two years in prison, though Weiner’s attorneys are likely to ask for probation.

The potential charges stemmed from the sexually charged text messages and Skype conversations he allegedly exchanged with a 15-year-old girl for months last year. The messages were revealed when online news outlet DailyMail.com interviewed the girl last September.

The FBI began an investigation, which meant Weiner had to hand over his electronics.
