NEWS RELEASE 19-042 - MARCH 19, 2019
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Michael Triola, DOB 03/09/86, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Triola was convicted in 2009 in Sarasota County of Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a Victim Under 16 Years Old. He was sentenced to eight years and six months in prison. Triola recently relocated and reports he will live in the area of Orange Avenue and 21st Street 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. Triola 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.
This information is posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office website, agency Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to publicly notify citizens of sexual offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time, when moving into the county or following release from prison. Citizens should still sign up to receive notifications from FDLE of sex offenders and predator registrations.
