Mayor John Gosek, a 59 year old former Oswego Mayor, resigned September 21, 2005, in the wake of his arrest of federal charges of using a cellphone to offer money and drugs to solicit sex from two underage girls. Gosek had two years left in his second term as mayor of Oswego. He was arrested at a Syracuse hotel after paying a confidential informant $250 to introduce him to two 15 year old girls. If convicted, he faced a sentence of five to 30 years in prison.
