NEWS RELEASE #: 16-185
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Ronald Beatty, DOB 07/17/43, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Beatty was convicted on three counts of Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a Victim Under 16 in 1991 in Broward County and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Beatty has no other criminal history. He was just released and reports his address will be 725 S. Oxford Drive in Englewood. Beatty 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.
