SARASOTA CO., FL (WWSB) - The sheriff's office is advising the public that two sex offenders have registered in Sarasota County. 


Justin Readybaker, 27, was convicted of use of a computer to solicit or lure a child to engage in sexual conduct in Sarasota County in 2013 and sentenced to probation.

He just moved from Manatee County and reports his address is 6101 Hawkins Road in Sarasota. He is no longer under court supervision because he was convicted after 2004. Readybaker is not allowed to live within 1,000 feet of a school, park or playground.


James Wayne Hutchins, 69, was convicted of attempted criminal solicitation on a child under 12 in Polk County in 1984 and sentenced to 17 years in prison.

In 2012, he was convicted of aggravated assault with a weapon without intent to kill and sentenced to an additional five years behind bars. His history includes possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, grand theft and forgery.

Hutchins was just released from prison and reports his new address is 7558 Parrish Street in North Port. He is not currently under the supervision of the Department of Corrections, and because he was convicted prior to 2004, residency restrictions do not apply.
