The New York federal judge accepted Weiner's admission to sending sexually explicit texts to a minor across state lines, and Weiner agreed to not appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison. "I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful".
That same month, the FBI began investigating Weiner after the North Carolina girl told the news website DailyMail.com that she and Weiner had exchanged lewd messages for several months.
Weiner said his "destructive impulses" have ruined his life, and said he has hit "rock bottom".
"I love him, I've forgiven him, I believe in him", she said.
"I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse", the former Democratic congressman told the Associated Press.
A message left with a representative for Abedin seeking comment Friday morning was not returned.

It is unacceptable to watch a game and see cross checks and elbows thrown at various players heads. "It's a great opportunity". The 25-year-old, a scratch at times previously in the playoffs, finished off a Karlsson blast that banged off the post.
"He apologized, offered no excuses, and made a commitment to make amends", Devlin-Brown said in a statement.
He surrendered to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in NY early Friday and appeared in court late-morning, telling U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska how he had communicated with the teenager, "as I had done and continued to do with adult women", according to his plea statement, which was released by his attorney.
Weiner was released on bail and will be sentenced on September 8.
The inquiry was brief, and Mr Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Mrs Clinton could not be charged, but she partly blamed her election loss to Republican Donald Trump on Mr Comey's announcement.
Weiner, a Democrat who represented a New York City congressional district for more than a decade, resigned in 2011 after a scandal over an explicit photo he accidentally sent from his Twitter account.
Trump fired Comey days later amid the FBI's probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to defeat Clinton, an allegation he has vehemently denied. The failed mayoral bid is the subject of the documentary Weiner.
