Former Bucs employee gets more than 10 years in prison on underage sex charges

The man who once sold luxury suites for the Buccaneers will have far less compelling accommodations over the next decade.

Arrested last year as part of a Dateline-style sex sting operation that rounded up a total 32 alleged offenders, Brian Weiss has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for attempting to have sex with a 14-year-old girl, according to Elaine Silvestrini of the Tampa Tribune.

The problems for Weiss began when he saw on Craigslist a phony ad posted by “a mom and stepdaughter looking for a good time.”   Weiss responded immediately with the kind of photo Brett Favre allegedly once sent.

Per Silvestrini, court documents explain that, once Weiss learned the stepdaughter was only 14, Weiss “set out to try and convince the ‘mother’ that he was the best man for the job of teaching the child about sex,” and that he “repeatedly took steps to determine if he was dealing with an undercover sting operation.”  The case against Weiss also included tape-recorded phone conversations in which he believed he was trying to persuade the girl to have sex with him.

Eventually, he drove 70 miles to meet with two people who didn’t exist.

Yes, it was all a ruse, but the consequences for Weiss will be very real.

    about 100 years too short. anyone who harms a kid or someone who’s unable to defend themselves should just get life.

    He is sick and deserves what he got. But I can’t help but think he might not have ever acted on his perverse predilection if the “anonymity” of the internet wasn’t available. Would’ve loved to see the look on his face when he realized he was toast.

    Damn dude. Thinking with the wrong brain. I’m not one to bash someone’s personal likes or oddities but the underage game is a flat out NO-NO.

    Why is it that every story dealing with perversion or any kind of misconduct is written by Florio and stories with actual football substance are written somebody (anybody) else?

    Weiss “set out to try and convince the ‘mother’ that he was the best man for the job of teaching the child about sex.”

    That is HILARIOUS! Did he actually think that would work? HAHAHAHAH!!! We’ve all had that thought at one time or another, but most of us have the sense to realize how stupid it is before actually saying it out loud!
