Florida Neighborhood Wants Former Doctor Sex Offender ‘Out of Town’

On July 12, 2006, a former Lakeland anesthesiologist was found guilt of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl. He was sentenced to 10 years in state prison. He is now released, but is no longer licensed to practice medicine.

In Orange County Florida a registered sex offender physician is suing the city of Orlando, which is ordering him to move out of the neighborhood known as Lake Nona, after they just moved in.

Doctor David J. Levitats, who once worked at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, is now on probation following his conviction of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old. He recently purchased what is reported to be a half-million dollar home which – according to court records – is “too close’ to local parks where children play.

Levitats, age 50, his wife and another man who is also a convicted sex offender, have told local news media that they were given permission by the state of Florida Department of Corrections to live in the Lake Nona neighborhood. Now the city of Orlando is telling them they cannot. The Orlando Police Department confirms that – according to existing housing criteria – the Leviatat’s are indeed in violation of city ordinance.

Medical Miscreants examined a Google Maps view of the neighborhood, which confirms the existence of two small parks near the home. But a little research shows also that – according to state law – registered sex offenders are not legally banned from living near parks. They are restricted when it comes to schools and playgrounds.

A spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Corrections verified in a phone interview that Levitats was told by them that he could purchase the house.

The young teenage girl involved was not a patient of Levitat’s, but the daughter of close family friends. She was often invited for “sleep-overs” with Levitat’s daughter, which is how the relationship began.

Here’s another look at the background case:

    Update: The fact the Levitats lived in this half million dollar home in lake Nona is only a small portion of the problem with this sex offender. The real problem is his new job as a property investor where he goes to unsuspecting neighborhoods everyday, meeting neighbors of investment properties where children are clearly present as he introduces himself to be David Jules…..not Levitats. Once he purchases these homes, he has a crew of his past prison buddies doing illegal remodeling. He also collects food stamps from the state of Florida.
