A convicted sex offender has moved into the 500 block of Key Royale Drive in Holmes Beach.
According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website, the 32-year-old male was convicted in September 2007 in Orlando of lewd and lascivious behavior with a minor child under 16 years of age. The man also was arrested in 2000 on the same charge, but adjudication was withheld at that time.
The man moved to Holmes Beach Sept. 16 from Osceola according to the FDLE, which reported the move was temporary. The man’s permanent address is in Osceola, which is near Orlando.
There are now two convicted sex offenders living in Holmes Beach, one in Bradenton Beach and one in Cortez. The FDLE does not show any convicted sexual offenders residing in Anna Maria.
By Florida law, convicted sexual offenders are required to notify the FDLE of any change of address, and to indicate if the address change is permanent or temporary.
