Sex Offender Registration

NEWS RELEASE 17-269 - DECEMBER 28, 2017


The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Lonnie O’Quinn, DOB 11/29/64, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.

O’Quinn was convicted on three counts of Lewd or Lascivious Assault on a Child Under 16 Years Old in 2001 in Polk County. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison and was just released. O’Quinn reports his address will be 2510 Jollivette Road in North Port. He is currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections however, because O’Quinn 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 the FDLE of sex offenders and predators.
