FDLE Posts List of Recent Brevard Sex Offenders
By Space Coast Daily // July 21, 2013
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has released a listing of recent sexual offenders from Brevard County.
Florida statutes stipulate that a sexual offender is a person convicted of (or who has pled no contest or guilty to) a sex offense involving a minor and who is released on or after October 1, 1997 from the sanction (e.g., fine, incarceration, probation, etc.) imposed as a result of the offense.
Offenses typically include, but are not limited to child pornography, sexual performance by a child under 18 and procuring a person under 18 for purposes of prostitution.
A sexual predator designation is given when a person is convicted of a first-degree felony sex crime, or two second-degree felony sex crimes (with offenses, convictions or release from court sanctions occurring within 10 years) and which occurred after October 1, 1993. In addition, the court must issue a written order finding for predator status.
This new group joins a lengthy list of sexual offenders and sexual predators already registered as residing in Brevard communities.
Here are the newly listed sexual offenders of the Space Coast:
Johnathan William Dufresne, Michael Anthony Hanks, Audrey Jean Whittaker, Charles T Linsinbigler jr., Thomas Gerrit Vannoorloos, William Edwin Miller
