The former county tax collector Joel Greenberg, who has pleaded guilty to six federal crimes and is an associate of Florida Man Matt Gaetz, has asked for a delay in his sentencing until March 2022.
The current sentencing date is scheduled for November 18, but Greenberg’s lawyers filed a motion on Tuesday to delay — so that he can continue cooperating with federal investigators.
According to the filing, prosecutors have no objection to the delay.
Greenberg has been cooperating with government agents who have been investigating several men, including Gaetz, who is being investigated for having sex with a 17-year-old and for obstruction of justice.
The motion says that Greenberg’s “cooperation, which could impact his ultimate sentence, cannot be completed prior to the time of his sentencing.”
