NEWS RELEASE #: 16-218
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that John Maxwell, DOB 8/12/43, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Maxwell was convicted on three counts of Producing Obscene Materials with Minors in 1992 in Alabama. He was sentenced to three years in prison. Maxwell's criminal history includes Larceny and Driving Under the Influence. He just moved to Sarasota County and reports his address will be 3239 Pine Valley Drive in Sarasota. He is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because Maxwell 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.
