Scott Overbeck, 44, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm or a destructive device. He is scheduled to enter his guilty plea before a federal judge Wednesday. Overbeck's name became intertwined with the Aisenberg story this summer, when the St. Petersburg Times learned convicted felon Dennis Byron, 33, a longtime friend of Overbeck's, told detectives that Overbeck had admitted to disposing of the baby's remains. Sabrina was 5-months-old when she went missing in 1997 from her Valrico home. A federal case accusing parents Steve and Marlene Aisenberg of lying about their daughter fell apart in 2001. A judge threw out the charges against them. No one has been arrested and no new charges have been filed. In a jailhouse interview earlier this year, Byron told the Times that information he provided detectives won him freedom from a three-year prison sentence. But he violated house arrest, and the sentence has been replaced by a five-year one. Byron said detectives had him secretly record conversations with Overbeck when they shared a cell and that Overbeck admitted to cutting up the baby's body and disposing of it in Old Tampa Bay. Overbeck's federal case began after Hillsborough Sheriff's detectives executed a search warrant in December at his Tampa home at 9303 E Eden Roc Circle. Investigators had probable cause to believe that Overbeck was in possession of and distributing narcotics from the home, according to court records. While inside, authorities recovered a "possible destructive device," court records say, which was later found to contain explosive powders, a fuse and 12-gauge shotgun shells that would act as fragmentation.
