The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Timothy Harrison Nichols, DOB 03/09/67, has registered as a Sexual Predator living in Sarasota County.
Nichols was convicted of Sexual Battery on a Victim Under 16 in 1999 in Baker County and sentenced to eight years in prison. He was released from prison in 2006 then involuntarily recommitted to a facility in 2013. Nichols has prior convictions from the late 80’s and early 90’s for Robbery and Armed Burglary. He was just re-released and reports his address will be 290 Crane Road in Venice. Nichols is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because he was convicted 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, agency Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram 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 offenders and predator registrations.
