Violent Sex Offender Kenneth Shepard Wanted to Work as "Trump Campaign Volunteer" Going Door to Door in Sarasota Now Confined at Mental Facility on Sawyer Rd Sarasota.


 
Violent Sex Offender Kenneth Shepard Wanted to Work as "Trump Campaign Volunteer" Going Door to Door in Sarasota Now Confined at Mental Facility on Sawyer Rd Sarasota. Violent homeless ex-con sex offender Kenneth S. Shepard is known to carry and use a knife in a assault in 2013 and he used a "sword" in another attack in 2014 in Worcester MA. Violent Sarasota Homeless Ex-Con Sex Offender Kenneth S. Shepard is from Worcester MA, he forcibly raped a young female in 1988 and was convicted of the crime and sent to prison for what appears to be 12 years in MA. On January 5th, 2016 Ex-Con Sex Offender Kenneth S. Shepard had just moved back to Sarasota County from Worcester MA (again) and had registered as a transient. The registration of a "location" and not a physical address is allowable by Florida law for homeless or transient persons, but a transient offender or predator must register their address with the sheriff's office every 30 days. Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public that Kenneth Scott Shepard, DOB 09/26/1965, had registered as a Sexual Offender living in Sarasota County as a transient (homeless). Shepard was convicted of Strong Arm Rape in Massachusetts in 1988. In 2007, after moving to Florida, he failed to register as a Sex Offender in Okeechobee County and was sentenced to three years in the Florida State prison system.
Violent Sex offender Kenneth Shepard showed up at the 3rd floor offices of Trump HQ at 1517 State St in Downtown Sarasota on Thursday February 4th 2016 to volunteer, he stated he was not good with computers but would like to work different neighborhoods going door to door campaigning for Trump, what the hell? The female staffers at Trump HQ were leery of Shepard and told him to come back the next day, one of the female staffers "Googled" the name of Kenneth Shepard and saw an article on my website about the violent sex offender having just recently arrived from Worcester MA, she immediately contacted me as I was doing some security work for the campaign. I told the female staffer if he comes back call 911 and have him trespassed off the property, she said he might come back on Friday at about 2:00 pm. I found it highly suspicious that a violent sex offender like Kenneth S. Shepard wanted to go door to door campaigning and since he was homeless and had no car, apparently he wanted to work the Downtown Sarasota area. Kenneth Shepard had his address listed with the FDLE Sex Offender Registry as a transient (homeless) living in the area of Oak Street and U.S. 301 in Sarasota (Payne Park), see Sarasota County Sheriff report from January 2016 http://www.sarasotasheriff.org/news/news-releases/item/sexual-offender-registration-13.html
At 12:49 PM ON FRIDAY FEBRUARY 5th, 2016 A TRESPASSING CALL WAS PLACED FROM TRUMP HQ 1517 STATE ST SARASOTA FL CONCERNING VIOLENT SEX OFFENDER KENNETH SHEPARD AS HE HAD RETURNED TO WORK DOOR TO DOOR...SARASOTA POLICE DEPARTMENT RESPONDED, EVENTUALLY. There were only two female staffers and myself at the 3rd floor offices of the Trump campaign when Kenneth Shepard arrived. After the first 911 call was placed at 12:49 pm there was a long wait for response even after I told the 911 operator that Shepard was violent and known to carry a knife, a staffer followed up with an additional call to 911 at about 12:57 pm on February 5th 2015. The 911 operator called me back on my cell phone at 1:01 pm to tell me a car had been dispatched to the 1517 State Street location, two Sarasota city police officers finally arrived at 1:04 pm, a full 15 minutes after the first 911 call, the Police station is just a few blocks away. Previously on Thursday February 4th the female staffer had placed a follow up call to the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept about Kenneth Shepard, they indicated Shepard had an active warrant for his arrest and they told the female staffer to call 911 immediately if he returned, which they did, Friday February 5th at 12:49 pm. But when the two Sarasota City police officers finally arrived at 1:04 pm they indicated that there was no active warrant for Kenneth Shepard, he was trespassed off the property at 1517 State St and told not to come back. The two Sarasota City police officers appeared to have an attitude about the whole scenario from the minute they stepped off the elevator to the 3rd floor Trump offices. Kenneth Shepard was not searched for weapons, nor was the plastic bag he was carrying searched by the Sarasota police officers. There is no doubt that Kenneth Shepherd is a very dangerous and violent sex offender, with arrests and convictions for violent crimes from 1988 thru 2015 in Massachusetts and Sarasota Fl.
On September 1st, 2016 Sarasota Police Department Detective Dan Riley received a notice that Kenneth Shepard had registered a new address as the corner of Main St and S. Lemon Ave just down the street form Trump HQ at 1517 State St, several attempts were made to locate Shepard, he was not found. On September 12th Detective Dan Riley issued an agency wide bulletin requesting assistance in locating Kenneth Shepard. On September 21st, 2016 an arrest warrant was executed for Kenneth Shepard for failure to register as a sex offender, he was located at 200 N. Lime Ave Sarasota Fl. On November 23rd 2016 the Florida State Attorney dropped the charges with no explanation, Kenneth Shepard should have been sent back to State Prison for failure to register as a sex offender. The Florida State Attorney's office allowed violent sex offender Kenneth Shepard to continue to wander around downtown Sarasota when they had a valid case to send him back to prison for a lengthy term, the case was mishandled by Melissa Gould Assistant State Attorney. In 2007, after moving to Florida, Kenneth Shepard failed to register as a Sex Offender in Okeechobee County and was sentenced to three years in the Florida State prison system, way to go Melissa Gould Assistant State Attorney.

Violent sex offenders like Kenneth Shepard are never cured! In my opinion, based on Kenneth Shepard’s continued and extensive list of violent crimes from 1988 to 2014, and based on my up close and personal contact with Kenneth Shepard in Sarasota over the last year, I would classify him as a psychotic career criminal who undoubtedly will rape and injure someone again in the near future.
