Nebraska resident Douglas Goldsberry, 45, was sentenced to four years in prison for sending prostitutes to strip on his neighbor’s front porch while he watched from his house.
He’ll will face the maximum penalty of four years for his pandering charge. Under state guidelines that cut sentences in half, Doughlas will serve less than two years, with credit for 177 days already served in jail.
About 30 times a year, going back to 2013, women would show up at the porch of Goldsberry’s neighbor’s house late at night or early in the morning. The women would strip, then would try to open the front door or ring the doorbell to get their money.
Goldsberry would watch from his house across the street where he masturbated while watching from his kitchen.
The couple living in the home said the doorbell ringing would wake up their young children and the whole experience caused marital stress and affected their personal lives, the Omaha World-Herald reports.
Deputy Douglas County Attorney Chad Brown said the entire situation was “a really twisted and sick plot.”
“He derived pleasure out of how far he could control these women to see how far he could get them to go,” Brown told the Omaha World-Herald.
In addition to the pandering charge, Goldsberry is also facing other charges.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office found evidence of child pornography on Goldsberry’s hard drive after searching his electronic devices. He has been indicted in federal court on one count of possession of child pornography and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
