Speed was convicted in 2006 in Pinellas County of Sexual Battery, Coercing a Victim by Threat and Kidnapping. He was sentenced to eight years in prison. Speed recently relocated and reports he will live in the area of 4381 Cattlemen Road in Sarasota. The registration of a “location” and not a physical address is allowable by Florida law for homeless or transient persons, but a transient offender or predator must register their address with the sheriff’s office every 30 days. Speed is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections, however he is not allowed to live within 1,000 feet of a school, childcare facility, park or playground. Mandatory neighborhood notifications are being made.
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.
