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.
Convicted sexual offenders and sexual predators are required by law and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to register with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
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
