Suspect arrested on child sex charges
Boca Raton, FL – Gary Jay Goldberg of Boca Raton was arrested by detectives from the Boca Raton Police Services Department on charges he took naked pictures of two teenage girls in exchange for money.
Back in January the 17 year old victim’s mother contacted Boca Raton Police after finding images on her daughter’s cell phone that concerned her. The pictures were of her daughter and another teenage girl in various stages of nudity. The photos were also in text messages to someone named Gary G. and a phone number. That number came back to the cell phone of 48 year old Gary Goldberg of Boca Raton.
The 17 year old told investigators that Goldberg would pick up her and her friend and bring them to his real estate office at 2255 Glades Road. The victim said Goldberg then gave them alcohol and about $100 to take pictures of them in various stages of nudity. The victim also said they went to a gas station where Goldberg and the 15 year old went inside. Later the 15 year old told the 17 year old that Goldberg performed oral sex on her in a gas station bathroom.
Numerous texts found on the victims and suspects phones indicate Goldberg repeatedly offered cash to the two girls in exchange for pictures of them. In one text, Goldberg texts the 15 year old and types “Let’s Play”. A search warrant was executed on Goldberg’s office and numerous electronic devices were seized, which contained many of the same pictures. Goldberg told investigators he did give the girls money and took pictures, but the girls were clothed. Goldberg then immediately asked for a lawyer.
Goldberg has been charged with two counts of Lewd & Lascivious Conduct, Promoting Sexual Performance of a Child, and Possession of Photographs of Child Sex Conduct.
