Douglas Goldsberry, an Elkhorn man accused of sending prostitutes to his neighbors' home, pleaded no contest to pandering Monday. Pandering is a felony charge in Nebraska. 

Investigators were called to a home near the intersection of N 185th Street and Indiana Street in March. The homeowners told deputies with the Douglas County Sheriffs Office they were fearful because women identifying themselves as escorts or prostitutes had been exposing themselves and demanding money.

A complaint says a family with two small children lived at the house and the women would go on their porch and strip down or lift their shirts off, and one woman urinated in their bushes.

Deputies conducted surveillance and brought in two women who were seen exposing themselves at the home. The complaint says investigators were able to determine through phone records Goldsberry, who lives across the street, had sent the women and would tell them to commit the acts so he knew they weren't undercover officers.

According to the complaint, Goldsberry told investigators he would watch the girls out of his kitchen window, which faced his neighbor's porch, and sometimes take pictures and would become sexually aroused. He also told investigators he would meet prostitutes at hotels.

Goldsberry will be sentenced on Nov. 3 and may face additional charges.
