LAS VEGAS -- The former CEO of the now defunct Southern Nevada Cancer Institute was released from custody Friday by a federal judge.
Michael Steven Goldman is facing charges related to child pornography and trying to engage in unlawful sex.
Goldman came into court wearing jail garb but put on a jacket before facing Judge George Foley. The judge allowed Goldman to be released, but under strict conditions as this is an ongoing case.
Court documents show Michael Steven Goldman AKA Mickey Goldman was arrested in January on charges of unlawful sexual activity, coercion and enticement, and transporting child pornography.
The complaint states an uncover officer posed as father on a website who was engaging in sexual activity with his teenage daughter. None of this was true, but it was a trap. And when the bait was set, and man who later identified himself as "Mickey" from the Las Vegas area bit.
The document in detail luridly describes how the two men met in a chat room, and progressed to email in which pornographic pictures of children were sent to the undercover officer.
The complaint also describes that they eventually agree for Mickey to meet the cop’s fake 13 year old daughter at a local casino/hotel for sex.
Judge Foley has allowed Goldman to be released under house arrest with Goldman’s wife as custodian. He will monitored by GPS, and his computer will also be monitored, as he is not allowed to view anything pornographic or erotic; and is not allowed any contact with minors.
