John Dennis is a sexual predator with an active arrest warrant in Hillsborough County. Do not approach him; those bad tattoos could be contagious.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff is looking for sexual predator John Claude Dennis, who failed to register after leaving his registered address of 5438 Trail Drive in Seffner.



This isn't the first time Dennis has had problems following the rules; he spent time at Hillsborough's Orient Road Inn in November for failing to follow the rules.
