NEWS RELEASE #: 17-008 - JANUARY 11, 2017
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is advising the public that Timothy Furry, DOB 03/02/78, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Furry was convicted of Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct on a Victim Under 15 in Michigan in 1997 and sentenced to three years in prison. His criminal history includes Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Assault and Possession of Marijuana. Furry just moved to Sarasota County from Pennsylvania and reports his address will be 6610 Harmony Road in North Port. He is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because Furry 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.
