Sex Offender Registration
NEWS RELEASE 18-193 - NOVEMBER 29, 2018
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Jamin Held, DOB 06/20/79, has registered as a sexual offender living in Sarasota.
Held was charged in 1999 in Ohio with Sexual Battery and sentenced to 16 months behind bars to run concurrent with a previous burglary conviction for which he was sentenced to eight years. He was again arrested in 2011 for Failing to Register as a Sexual Offender in Ohio and sentenced to 17 months of confinement followed by five years of probation. Held recently relocated from Ohio and reports his address will be 2392 Bartek Place in North Port. He is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections and because his original conviction was prior to 2004, residency restrictions do not apply.
This information is posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office website, mobile app, 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.
