Former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg will face sentencing in August. 

Greenberg’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 19 at 9:30 a.m. He is required to attend. 

He pleaded guilty in May to six federal charges, including six trafficking of a child.

Greenberg is an associate of the embattled Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz.

Greenberg could face a lighter sentence, as his plea agreement implies he will serve as a witness in a federal investigation of Gaetz, a close Trump ally. 

Gaetz has denied any wrongdoing.

Greenberg also pleaded guilty to production of a false identification document, aggravated identity theft, wire fraud, stalking and conspiracy to commit an offense against the U.S. 


Amy Green covered the environment for WMFE until 2023. Her work included the 2020 podcast DRAINED.
