Bradenton Beach gains sex offender

A 65-year-old man convicted of two counts of sexual battery recently moved to the 1600 block of Gulf Drive in Bradenton Beach.

The man was convicted in Polk County in 1995 of sexual battery of a child under the age of 12 and sexual battery of a minor.

The man has since been released from probation but under Florida law is required to register his address whenever he moves.

He lived in the 6000 block of Elm Avenue in Tampa before moving to Bradenton Beach Aug. 28, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website.

There is one convicted sex offender residing in Holmes Beach, while none are known to live in Anna Maria. One convicted sex offender lives in Cortez, while two live in the Palma Sola area, the FDLE website reports.
