The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Gardia Parker, DOB 11/2/81, has just registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Information from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) shows Gardia was convicted in Arapahoe County, Colorado, in 2007 for Sexual Assault on a Child. He just moved to Florida and reports that he will live at 4426 Galway Drive, Sarasota.
This information is also being posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office web site and the agency's Facebook page to more publicly notify citizens of sex offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time or following release from prison.
We still recommend that citizens sign up to receive regular notifications from FDLE of sex offender and predator registrations and address changes at their web site: https://www.floridaoffenderalert.com/.
