A Summerfield sex offender spent a night in jail last week after showing up a day late for his quarterly registration update.
Eric Samuel ____, 50, of 9445 SE 162nd St., was convicted in Orange County in October 1997 of sexual battery on a victim under 12 by an adult. As a result, he was required to register as a sex offender and must re-register four times a year, in the months of June, September, December and March.
On the morning of Thursday, April 1, Eric Samuel ____ reported to the sheriff’s office to register. After being read his Miranda warning, he told a deputy he forgot he was required to register in March. Eric Samuel ____ said he realized on March 31 he had forgotten and came to the sex offender unit office, but it was closed. Eric Samuel ____ has been provided with the unit’s office hours in the past and is aware the office is closed on Wednesdays, the report said.
