NEWS RELEASE #: 16-225
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Jeffrey Wiethoff, DOB 12/12/54, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Wiethoff was convicted of Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a Victim Under 16 in 1989 in Hillsborough County and sentenced to sex offender probation. In 2000, Wiethoff was convicted of violating his probation and sentenced to prison. He just moved to North Port from Charlotte County and reports his address will be 4679 Lovett Road. Wiethoff is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because he was 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.
