Sex Offender Registration
NEWS RELEASE 19-161 - SEPTEMBER 24, 2019
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Thomas Durham, Jr., DOB 03/10/74, has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.
Durham was convicted in 1994 in North Carolina of Indecent Liberties with a Child and sentenced to probation. In 1999, he violated his probation and served four years in prison. In 2006, Durham failed to meet sex offender registration requirements and was sentenced to time served. He again failed to meet registration requirements in 2007 and was given 36 months of probation. Durham violated his probation in July the same year and was sentenced to an additional 11 months and 29 days behind bars. He recently relocated and reports his address is 6017 Crestwood Avenue, Apt. A, in Sarasota. Durham is not currently under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections, and because the offense occurred out of state prior to 2004, 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.
