Sex offender relocates to North Port

  • 1

NORTH PORT, Fla. - The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that 55-year-old Gabriel Talavera-Rivera has registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County.

Rivera was convicted of committing Lewd Acts on a 14 year old girl in 2004. Because his crime occurred in Puerto Rico, little information about his sentence or arrest history is available at this time.

Rivera relocated from Puerto Rico and will be living at 3800 Nekoosa Street, North Port.

This information is also being posted on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office web site and the agency’s Facebook page as part of a new initiative to more publicly notify citizens of sex offenders and predators who register a Sarasota County address for the first time.

Authorities recommend that residents sign up for sex offender alerts from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to receive regular notifications of routine registrations and address changes,
