BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton man is accused of taking a page from “Q-Anon” conspiracy theorists — posting lies to social media that led to rallies and harassment against his ex-wife.
Aaron Silberberg is accused, among other things, of orchestrating a social media campaign against his ex — claiming she is a child abuser. That claim led to rallies at the homes of people related to the woman. There is no evidence that the claim is true.
Original affidavits of probable cause were filed on March 22nd and April 8th. Another affidavit was filed yesterday — on June 24th. That led to Silberberg’s arrest by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
While Thursday’s arrest report is still being processed, this is the arrest report from April 8th, in which Silberberg is accused of orchestrating a social media campaign against his ex-wife:
“Aaron Silberberg was issued and served a final domestic violence iniunction on 3/4/2021 and expires 3/4/2023 in Palm Beach County FL. Silberberg is not to make any communication with the protected person including but not limited to person, written, or telephone contact, or their employers, employees, or fellow workers, or others with whom the communication would likely to cause annoyance or alarm.”
”On 3/14/2021, Aaron posted on several media platforms information pertaining to a protest rally at (his ex’s) parents and grandparents house. Also contained in Aaron’s posts is (his ex’s) cellphone number and context which encourages third parties to contact (his ex) and allegations that (his ex) is a child abuser for not letting Aaron see their daughter.
“On 3/14/2021 shortly after Aaron’s posts, (the ex) began to receive harassing and annoying phone calls and text messages from both people whom she knew and people she did not know. (The victim stated) some of the phone calls she received were people yelling at her for being a child abuser and she should let her daughter see Aaron.”
“On 3/14/2021 Aaron told me he was not the original publisher of the post, however, he saw it posted on his page and shared it on the rest of his social media platforms to include Facebook, Instagram, and Whats App. Based on my investigation I find probable cause exists that Aaron violated FSS 741.31 (4a) for sharing posts that encourages third party contact to which harassed, annoyed, and caused alarm.”
Silberberg was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on two counts of violating a domestic violence injunction.
