Sex Offender Registration

NEWS RELEASE 19-030 - FEBRUARY 25, 2019
Steiger, James

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that James Steiger, DOB 05/14/53, has registered as a sexual offender living temporarily in Sarasota County.

Steiger was convicted in 2001 in Volusia County of Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition with a Victim Less than 16 Years Old and sentenced to 60 days in jail. He is visiting Sarasota County through April, 2019 and reports his temporary address is 76 6th Street in Nokomis. Steiger is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections, and because the offense took place 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.
