A Nebraska man was sentenced to four years in prison Friday for sending strippers to his neighbor’s house dozens of times over a three-year period.

The Omaha World-Herald reported that 45-year-old Douglas Goldsberry of Elkhorn was sentenced in Douglas County District Court after pleading no contest in September to pandering.

According to the report, women sent by Goldsberry would show up at the married couple’s front door about 30 times every year late at night or early in the morning. They would seek payment after stripping and try to open the front door or ring the doorbell, waking up the couple’s children. Meanwhile, Goldsberry watched from his kitchen and masturbated.

His actions reportedly caused marital stress and affected the unnamed couple’s professional lives.

"It’s a really twisted and sick plot," said Deputy Douglas County Attorney Chad Brown, adding that Goldsberry called it "a screening process."

"He derived pleasure out of how far he could control these women to see how far he could get them to go."

Goldsberry pleaded no contest to one count of pandering in September and was found guilty of the charge by a judge. He also admitted to investigators that he would solicit strippers to his neighbor's house and watch from his window as they stripped, court documents said, according to ABC affiliate KETV, at the time of the hearing. Goldsberry's attorney, Nathan Lab, said there were no allegations that there was any physical contact between his client and the girls.

An investigation to look into the ages of some of those hired to perform was initiated by Douglas County Sheriff's Office in May as it was thought that "some may have been under 16."

The report said that the police traced communications of some of the escorts back to an app after the police met with them. The app led them to a Cox Communications — a cable television company —account registered to a subscriber at Goldsberry's home.

Lt. William Rinn said Goldsberry was using an app to hide his cell phone number.

Goldsberry also admitted to meeting escorts at hotel rooms and exchanging money for sex on a regular basis, investigators said in May.

They also found many storage devices including hard drives that contained videos of child pornography, Rinn told KETV.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said: "It's obviously a little bit hard to imagine, to fathom, that somebody would go to these lengths to have women appear at a neighbor's house, so he could watch them."

"You can't help but feel for those poor folks that lived at that house that he was sending the people to, I'm sure they're very relieved that this situation is coming to an end," Kleine said.

While he was sentenced to four years in jail, the maximum penalty on his pandering charge, Goldsberry would serve less than two years under state guidelines that cut sentences in half.

He was also indicted on one count of possession of child pornography and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of that charge, the Omaha World-Herald reported.
