A Boca Raton real estate agent acknowledged that he paid two teenage girls so he could take lewd photos of them, the Sun Sentinel reported.

Gary Jay Goldberg, 49, faces 10 years to life in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to a one-count indictment of using a cellphone to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity.

Federal agents and Boca Raton police began investigating in January after the parents of the 17-year-old found texts on her phone. The girl said she sent photographs of herself to a man in exchange for cigarettes and cash.

Investigators said Goldberg picked up the girl and her 15-year-old friend on Nov. 24, took them to his office in the 2200 block of Glades Road and gave them alcohol and $100 each to let him take photos of them “making out” and exposing themselves. [Sun Sentinel]Emily Schmall
