Sex Predator Registration
NEWS RELEASE 20-146 - DECEMBER 04, 2020
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Christopher Hilligoss, DOB 06/24/74, has registered as a Sexual Predator living in Sarasota County.
Hilligoss was convicted in 2003 in Pinellas County of Attempted Sexual Battery on a Victim Under 12 Years Old and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Following his release, he was again convicted in 2017 on a single count of Violation of Probation and served one additional year behind bars. Hilligoss recently relocated and reports his address is 521 Parkview Drive in Sarasota. He is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections and because the original offense occurred prior to 2004, residency restrictions do not apply. Mandatory neighborhood notifications are being made.
This information is posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office website, along with agency Facebook and Twitter accounts to publicly notify citizens of sex offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time, when moving into the county, or following a release from prison. Citizens should still sign up to receive notifications from FDLE of sex offender and predator registrations.
