BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca area Realtor Gary Goldberg, charged last month with several counts related to child sex abuse, has now been arrested by the FBI and charged with manufacturing child pornography.

BocaNewsNow.com just received this alert from the Department of Justice:

Wifredo A. Ferrer, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and Michael B. Steinbach, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Miami Field Office, announced yesterday that Gary Goldberg, 49, of Palm Beach County, was charged with production of child pornography in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2251. A Pre-trial detention hearing is scheduled for Goldberg today at 10:00 a.m.

The complaint charges Goldberg with production of child pornography, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2251. If convicted, Goldberg faces a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of fifteen years and a maximum term of imprisonment of up to thirty years.

According to the complaint, Goldberg entered into a relationship with a 17 year old girl and her 15 year old friend. Goldberg allegedly performed oral sex on the 15 year old girl in the bathroom at the BP station at Glades Road while the 17 year old waited in the car outside. Goldberg paid the minors to allow him to take nude and sexually explicit photographs of them. Goldberg allegedly photographed the girls with a tablet.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

Mr. Ferrer commended the investigative efforts of the FBI, Boca Raton Police Department, the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, and the South Florida Minor Vice Task Force. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lothrop Morris.

An indictment is only an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
