Sex Offender Registration

NEWS RELEASE 19-180 - NOVEMBER 1, 2019
Jan James

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Jan James, DOB 09/18/43, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.  James was convicted in 1997 in Pinellas County of Lewd or Lascivious Behavior with a Child Under 16 Years Old and sentenced to ten years in prison. His sentence was suspended with no time served, and he was given probation until 1999. James recently relocated and reports his address is 4021 South Crockers Lake Boulevard, Building 15, Apartment 1514, in Sarasota. He is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections, and because the offense occurred 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 sexual offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time, when moving into the county or following release from prison. Citizens should still sign up to receive notifications from FDLE of sex offenders and predator registrations
