    IL - Robert Goldman for soliciting underage sex online, Waukegan, 2002

    I say pervert, the rest is just smoke & mirrors . . . .


    Lawyer in solicitation trial suggests entrapment

    By M. Daniel Gibbard

    More than three years after he was arrested, former CLTV and WGN Radio sports personality Robert Goldman went on trial Wednesday with prosecutors saying he sought sex with someone he believed was an underage girl he met online.

    In his opening statement in the Waukegan courthouse, Goldman's lawyer implied that his client was entrapped and accused Pleasant of targeting Goldman because he was a TV and radio celebrity.

    Jurors were warned that some of the evidence would be graphic. And Assistant State's Atty. Patricia Fix pulled few punches in her opening statement, reading excerpts about oral sex and other sex acts from electronic messages sent by RGoldy411--Goldman, the state says--to KristyM1585, the America Online screen name Pleasant was using.
    The Internet communications, which included chat rooms, instant messages, e-mail and pictures, began in January 2001 and lasted until just before the arrest on April 6, 2002, Fix said.

    For the girl's photo, investigators used a picture of a female detective taken when she was 14, Fix said.
    Finally, he said Goldman drove past the apartment building where he was supposed to meet the girl on April 6, 2002, and pulled into a parking lot. Goldman was arrested before he got out of his car, so there was no proof he intended to go through with a meeting, Komie said.

    The trial was postponed 17 times before it got under way Monday before Judge Fred Foreman.

    What a coincidence!


    This guy used the fantasy abuse ... he didn't *really* think he was talking to a girl underage!

    WAUKEGAN, Ill. A former Chicago T-V sportscaster has been convicted of soliciting a minor for sex over the Internet.

    A Lake County Circuit Court jury returned the verdict last night against former Chicagoland Televison News Sports Director Rob Goldman. The jury deliberated six hours.

    Goldman says he will appeal. He was accused of conversing for 16 months with an undercover agent claiming to be a teenage girl. He was arrested after arranging a meeting.

    C-L-T-V fired Goldman shortly after his arrest in 2002.

    Goldman remains free on bond. He faces up to six years in prison when he is sentenced July 16th.

    After being convicted and basically just getting a slap on the wrists (probation), community service hours and being required to register as a sexual offender. Mr. Goldman feels that the punishment is too harsh. He claims the registry is unconstitutional.

    What really funny about this, if the motion is granted, Goldman will have a new sentencing hearing and could face up to five years in prison.

    So now, I think he's a stupid pervert.



    Robert Goldman, former sports director of ChicagoLand Television, is asking Lake County Circuit Judge Fred Foreman to declare the sex offender registration law unconstitutional and take his name off the list.

    Goldman, 44, of Aurora, was convicted in May of using the Internet to solicit sex from a juvenile, one that turned out to be an undercover police officer.

    He was arrested in April 2002 when he arrived for a meeting in Waukegan with the officer, who was portraying a 15-year-old deaf girl on the Internet.

    Me too ... he never accepted any responsibility for his actions. I think the judge was far too easy on him the first go-round ... here's to hoping things only get worse for him.

    Arrested for handing out halloween candy


    Sex offender may be jailed for handing out candy

    November 5, 2005

    BY DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter

    Former CLTV sports director Robert Goldman could face a five-year prison sentence because he allegedly handed out candy to young trick-or-treaters at his Aurora home on Halloween, authorities said Friday.

    Goldman was sentenced in September to 30 months' probation and ordered to stay away from children after being convicted in Lake County of soliciting sex online from a police decoy posing as a hearing-impaired 15-year-old girl.

    He also was ordered to register as a sex offender.

    During a Halloween stakeout of 20 registered sex offenders in DuPage County, including Goldman, sheriff's department investigators allegedly saw Goldman handing out candy to youngsters who came to his home.

    He doesn't appear to have gotten the idea yet that staying away from kids, means staying away from kids!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Myst, he's one of those guys who thinks that rules and laws don't apply to him.

    This new law was strongly advertised locally through the media. Further LE contacted EVERY registered sex offender personally to remind them of the new law. Goldman knew that it was against the law for him to hand out candy, but did it anyway.
