The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Kenneth Kidder, DOB 11/23/49, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Kidder was convicted of Attempted Lewd or Lascivious Conduct with a Child in 1993 in Vermont and was sentenced to four years in prison. Kidder has prior convictions for Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon, Driving Under the Influence, Larceny, Arson, and Burglary. Kidder just moved from Citrus County and reports his address will be 281 US Highway 41 Bypass North in Venice. He is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because Kidder was convicted out of state 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.
