Greenberg’s case has been on hold since February and the judge has approved a handful of sentencing extensions as Greenberg, who pleaded guilty to multiple charges including stalking, fraud and sex trafficking a minor, worked with federal prosecutors.
In Greenberg’s 84-page plea agreement, he told investigators that the sex trafficking victim had sex with “other men” while underage, but no additional details have been made public. Prior to any potential cooperation, Greenberg faced mandatory minimum of 12 years in federal prison, and ordered to forfeit $654,000 he obtained as part of the alleged wire fraud and bribery schemes.
Greenberg’s attorney, Fritz Scheller, did not respond to a request seeking comment.
Gaetz got pulled into the investigation as part of the broader probe into Greenberg. The New York Times reported in March 2021 that the three-term panhandle Republican was under investigation over whether he had sex with a 17-year-old girl. Federal authorities are also looking into whether Gaetz obstructed justice.
Gaetz has denied wrongdoing, and has faced no charges.
Investigators have interviewed several people close to Gaetz, including an ex-girlfriend who testified to a federal grand jury in January after months of working with investigators.
She was reportedly on a 2018 trip with Gaetz, a handful of other young women, and friends of Gaetz to the Bahamas, a trip that came under scrutiny from investigators and a key cog in the investigation into the congressman.
