The Department of Justice says Boca’s Gary Goldberg has plead guilty to enticing a minor to engage in an illegal sexual activity.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca area realtor Gary Goldberg, accused — among other things — of performing oral sex on a teenage girl in the bathroom of the BP station at Glades and Butts Road has plead guilty. The married father of two entered the plea in federal court.

According to 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 that Gary Goldberg, 49, of Palm Beach County, pled guilty on Friday, June 14, 2013, before U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra in West Palm Beach, Florida, to one count of enticing a minor to engage in an illegal sexual activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C. section 2422(b).

Sentencing has been scheduled for September 16, 2013. At sentencing, Goldberg faces a statutory mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum term of up to life in prison on the enticement of a minor count.

According to documents filed with the court, Goldberg entered into a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old victim and her 15-year-old friend. In addition, Goldberg paid the minor victims to allow him to take sexually explicit photographs of them.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

    When I read a story like this one, I try to put myself in the mindset of where this guy was mentally while he was committing the crime. So I live in the same area, have a similar job, ethnic background, same age, etc. So what’s this guy thinking? First of all, he was probably a loser teenager in high school. If he would have gotten laid enough from ages 15-20, he would not feel like he missed out on something at 49 years old. He would have been satisfied with memories, history, ex-gfs, sex with his wife, and school reunions. Instead, he ruined his life for less than a roll in the hay with a couple of teens. He ruined his family’s lives and worst of all, his poor kids. He deserves what he’ll get in jail, but even though I strongly believe in incarceration for this kind of crime, I think that 10 years should be the limit, not life in prison. I cannot imagine being turned on by a minor female to the point where he knowingly committed this crime, had to have thought of the consequences, and still proceeded. Wasn’t there an alarm going off in his head??? There may be more to this story than meets the eye. He might have done this previously to other minors or the minors may have had ‘other evidence’ against him. What a way to spend 10 years of your life. Guys, think long and hard before you do something stupid like this, right?

      Personally I think the porn industry online is creating a lot of these issues. Guys from teens to adults have free access to any kind of porn. Its ruining marriages and teen boys are as addicted. They all joke about it. There’s a new movie coming out with Scarlett Johansson about her boyfriend being addicted to porn. Until this country stops caring about the money makers and starts caring and worrying about our culture and put a lid on easy access to porn, incidents such as these and more will continue….
