NEWS RELEASE 19-111 - JULY 11, 2019
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Michael Vaughn, DOB 05/21/57, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Vaughn was convicted in 2007 in Maryland on two counts of Child Pornography and was sentenced to seven years in prison. Five years of his original sentence was suspended, and he was released in 2008. In 2011, Vaughn failed to meet sex offender registration requirements in Texas and served an additional five years behind bars. He recently relocated and reports his address is 1295 13th Street in the city of Sarasota. Vaughn is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections, and because the offense took place out of state, 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 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.
