FL: CrimeNews Ocala sex offender arrested for failing to update license

[ – 6/8/20]

An Ocala sex offender who recently got out of prison was arrested after he failed to update his driver’s license information within 48 hours of registering his new address.


On May 26, ___ reported to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and updated his registration after being released from the Department of Corrections and said he would be living at 10685 W. Hwy. 326 in Ocala. He was reminded of the registration requirements, which include reporting to a Division of Motor Vehicles office within 48 hours to update his license or ID card. West signed a form acknowledging he understood the requirements, according to the sheriff’s office report.

On Thursday, ___ came back to the sheriff’s office and reported to a deputy that he intended to move to New York. He said he did not report to the DMV within 48 hours because he didn’t have transportation, although he lives at a residence where a car is located. When asked why he didn’t call the sex offender unit to discuss his violation, Higginbotham said he didn’t have a phone, although his roommate has a cell phone. He later said he had no excuse for not going to the DMV besides not having transportation, the report said.

Westfall is being held without bail in the Marion County Jail and is due to appear in Marion County Court on July 7.

Well this seems like an excellent use of time and funds. I’m sure the court loves dealing with these technical cases. They’d be bored without them to fill the time.

Sounds perfectly clear and understandable after all the Public may be in Grave danger since he told the sheriff his current address and relocation to NY, and all and all the other personal information…. Why he might have sped away and not given more pertinent information and dodged being without id before he left town in less than 48 hours and created a National emergency that would surley put not only the state he currently lives in at DEFCON 1 NOT TO MENTION NY and the whole world would be on fire if that 48 hr dead line was not… Read more »

Wow, good thing they caught this “criminal”. Look at all the harm his “crime” did. Look at all the danger he caused. I’m sure they saved a lot of children. It is a simple fact that no actual American can think this is acceptable. The Registries Hit List must be destroyed. Otherwise we will constantly have criminals like these law enforcement criminals (LECs) who are arresting people for things like this. This is an outrage and very, very possibly could lead to actual, serious, harmful crimes. These LECs are idiots. But the criminal legislators and idiot public forced them into… Read more »

They need to dismantle our corrupt police department and get rid of our “reformer”piece of shit prosecutor who sent me to prison for years, just for having pictures on my computer. He’s all about reform only if it doesn’t involve what the state has labeled “child sex crimes.” First time robbers, jackers, shooters, bangers have been know to get “deferred prosecution” under DA Chisholm. That’s right, I’m not afraid to tell you the name of this piece of shit, John Chisholm of Milwaukee County who has allowed violent crime to go up in my city under his watch because he’s… Read more »

Actually Jackson you make a point and their is some validity in much of what you say to a point. Now I don’t know too much about computers but I do know that everything has a purpose, of either good or bad in life. I mentioned on here about the telegraph. Was that some type of radical invention or was the use of it a bit radical or in some ways good and bad. I’m sure theirs a lot of people that seem to know the end’s and out’s of computers or even if government tossed away control of computers.… Read more »

Will Allen I would hate to come To your house and throw the good book at you. Talk about brass knockles ( sorry knuckles) . The guy gets out of prison and is moving and hasnt’ updated his Driver’s license. One wonders how many bars of soap you need to clense a cop. Yes I’ve did some stupid things myself. Just last week I got a traffic ticket in my county. I even told the police officer I was a sex offender. Why did I say that I really don’t know. I will agree with you its about the money… Read more »

Wow i cant believe this is real what a waste of taxpayers money but we all know the consequences of not properly completing your registration its stupid and pointlessness i know but its what you gotta do to stay out of jail .
Everyday you wake up you have to stay mindful of your surroundings constantly stay on guard not only from your neighbor’s but also law enforcement. Obviously this whole system was design to keep sexofenders off the street and back in custody

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
