SARASOTA CO., Fla. (WWSB) -- A Sexual Offender has registered in Sarasota County.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office reports that Charles Leo Becker, 53, has listed his residence as 2520 S. Scarlet Oak Court in Sarasota.

Becker was convicted of Sexual Battery without Force Likely to Cause Injury in 1986 in Manatee County and sentenced to nine years in prison. Upon his release, he was convicted of Lewd or Lascivious Assault on a Child Under 16 in Sarasota County in 1993 and sentenced to an additional 10 years in prison.

He was then convicted of Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements in 2010 and sentenced to four years in prison. He was released in 2013.

Becker just moved from Pinellas County. He is not under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections and because his original conviction was prior to 2004, residency restrictions do not apply.
