The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Joshua Annis, DOB 1/19/88, has just registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
In 2010, Annis was convicted in Clinton, New York, of Sexual Abuse: Contact by Forcible Compulsion against a 10-year-old female. He was sentenced to two years in New York State Prison. Annis just moved to Florida and will be living at 482 Beverly Rd., Venice.
This information is also being posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office web site and the agency’s Facebook page as part of an initiative to more publicly notify citizens of sex offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time. We still recommend 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: https://floridaoffenderalert.com/.
