Seminole County

Judge agrees to delay Joel Greenberg’s sentencing

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — A judge agreed Monday to postpone the sentencing of former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg.

He will now be sentenced in March 2022.


In May, Greenberg pleaded guilty to six charges in federal court, including child sex trafficking and wire fraud.

Greenberg was originally scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 19, but the judge first approved a motion to postpone his sentencing until Nov. 18, and now again until next year.

The judge granted the motion, but said no additional continuances will be granted absent “extraordinary circumstances.”
