The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Jose Gonzalez, DOB 12/04/50, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Gonzalez was convicted in 1995 of Lewd and Lascivious with a Minor in Manatee County and sentenced to three years of probation. He recently moved from Manatee County and reports his address will be 5856 Whistlewood Circle in Sarasota. He is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections and because Gonzalez was convicted prior to 2004, residency restrictions do not apply.
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 the FDLE of sex offenders and predator registrations.
