Matt Gaetz, pleaded guilty to criminal charges on Friday, including sex trafficking of a minor, according to court documents.Greenberg had been working for weeks toward a deal with federal prosecutors who are investigating sex trafficking and public corruption allegations. The plea agreement was filed Friday by prosecutors in Federal District Court in Orlando, in which he also agreed to cooperate with the U.S. Justice Department investigations.Greenberg, a former Orlando-area tax collector, admitted that he and others who were not identified had paid a 17-year-old girl for sex and provided her with drugs, according to the court filing.
