SANFORD, Fla. - Former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg is back in jail today and likely for the foreseeable future.
Greenberg, 35, was ordered held on a no bond status earlier today by a federal judge after his presentment in court at the U.S. District Courthouse in Orlando where he was found to be in violation of the terms of his pre-trial release.
That's because Greenberg was turned over to US. Marshalls after police in Jupiter, FL discovered he was out in the community there during the overnight hours on Sunday in violation of a curfew as part of his earlier pre-trial release conditions.
Greenberg is facing a slew of federal charges ranging from stalking a political opponent to identity theft to soliciting minors for sex, all felony complaints that could put him behind bars for up to 40 years, if convicted in court.
