Convicted sex offender destroyed a nine-year-old boy’s innocence
While living at a monitored address, with random room searches and no unsupervised Internet access, Stevens accumulated several mobile devices and downloaded 5000 objectionable images.

Prosecutor Evan McCaughan said the supervision conditions should have been sufficient to prevent Stevens reoffending, but it was questionable how strictly monitored those conditions were.

Justice Kit Toogood described how Stevens’ background of childhood sexual abuse, at the hands of older boys and family members, which started when he was around nine years old, preceded his own sexual offending that began when he was a teenager.
