The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that David Paul Curtiss, DOB 12/26/61, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Curtiss was convicted of Rape and Indecent Assault and Battery in Massachusetts in 1993. He also failed to meet sex offender registration requirements in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and was sentenced to an additional five years in prison. Curtiss just moved from Pinellas County and reports his address will be 5500 Verna Road in Sarasota. Curtiss is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because he was originally 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 FDLE of sex offenders and predator registrations.
