In this episode, I’m talking to Palm Beach's  State Attorney  Dave Aronberg who says "Matt's in a whole lot of trouble. Child sex trafficking is punishable by up to life in prison," says Palm Beach Co. state attorney Dave Aronberg of the accusations facing GOP lawmaker Matt Gaetz.

"Even if they can't make a case of child sex trafficking, if you've proven to have sex with an underage girl, that's a felony in Florida, punishable by up to 15 years in state prison."

Dave Aronberg for what many are now calling in Florida, “The Pedophile Coast” because of Jeffrey Epstein and accused  Congressman Matt Gaetz, and Donald Trump, among many others. As the State Attorney for Palm Beach County, Florida he has first-hand information about Congressman Matt Gaetz's alleged sex trafficking of underage girls and the sexual abuse criminal case. 

"Matt's in a whole lot of trouble. Child sex trafficking is punishable by up to life in prison," says Palm Beach Co. state attorney Dave Aronberg of the accusations facing GOP lawmaker Matt Gaetz.

"Even if they can't make a case of child sex trafficking, if you're proven to have sex with an underage girl, that's a felony in Florida, punishable by up to 15 years in state prison."

Dave says,  “The most serious crime in Florida is child sex trafficking, punishable by up to life in prison." There’s a 10-year mandatory minimum. The more information that comes out, the fewer defenses Matt seems to have left. 

“For Gaetz, the problem is, it’s not just child sex trafficking,” Aronberg said. “If they can’t prove that and can only prove he had sex with an underage girl, well, that would be a violation of the state law against having sex with a minor. And that is a 15-year maximum sentence. And you have to register as a sex offender. Even if it’s solicitation of a sex act, that’s also a felony, plus registration as a sex offender. There are no good outcomes here, I think, for Matt Gaetz in the future.”

Dave Aronberg is a frequent guest on MSNBC and CNN. He's also the State's top Palm Beach Prosecutor where Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of sex trafficking underage girls, soliciting prostitution before Dave Aronberg took office. But Dave is acutely aware of the devastation that Jeffrey Epstein and his co-conspirators committed against underage girls. 

Before that, Dave served as a state Senator for Florida for 8 years. Dave is a tremendous leader in so many ways and is recognized as a formidable enemy to child sexual abusers, sex traffickers, rapists, and all predators, pedophiles, and perpetrators of sex crimes against women and children.  Dave understands sexual trauma, resilience, and the healing process victims and survivors must endure, in order to overcome sexual victimizations. He shows compassion for rape victims, rape survivors, child sexual abuse traumatized victims and survivors, and believes in women supporting women, women empowering women. The law can bring justice to survivors, says Dave Aronberg.
