The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Jonathan Berger, DOB 11/11/62 has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Berger was convicted on four counts of Sexual Battery/Coerce Child by an Adult and two counts of Lewd or Lascivious on a Child Under 16 Years of Age in 1991 in Manatee County and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Berger was also convicted on one count of Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements in 2010 and released from prison in 2012. He just moved to Sarasota County and reports his address will be 1778 23rd Street in Sarasota. Berger is not currently under the supervision of the Florida 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 offender and predator registrations.
