The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that William Huff, DOB 2/14/64, has registered as a Sexual Predator living in Sarasota County.
Huff was just released from prison after serving 17 years of a 20-year sentence for Sexual Battery on a Child under 12, which was amended to “Attempted” when he agreed to plead guilty. It’s his only known arrest. Huff is living at 9055 S. Tamiami Trail, Apt. 66, Venice. Mandatory neighborhood notifications have been made.
Huff was designated a Sexual Predator by the court and is under Department of Corrections supervision until August 25, 2023. He cannot have unsupervised contact with children and is not allowed to work or volunteer in a setting that involves children.
This information is also being posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office web site and on the agency’s Facebook page as part of a new initiative to more publicly notify citizens of sex offenders and predators who register a local address for the first time.
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office still recommends that citizens sign up for sex offender alerts from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to receive regular notifications of routine registrations and address changes.
