Maidstone garden pervert Jamie Stevens jailed
Friday 12th January 2018
A sex offender who sneaked into a Maidstone resident's garden without permission has bee jailed.
Jamie Stevens, 30, of no fixed address was arrested on Thursday, October 5, 2017, on suspicion of breaching his sexual offences prevention order the previous day in Maidstone.
The breach was committed by entering a private garden off Chatham Road without the permission of the owner.
Stevens was charged with the offence and was later found guilty when he appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 23 November.
He was subsequently sentenced to one year and six months in prison at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday 10 January 2018.
Detective Constable Darren Smitherman said; "Stevens has shown a complete disregard for the conditions of his prevention order and by entering a private garden was likely to cause considerable distress to residents.
"Stevens should reform his behaviour when he is released as any further breaches are likely to lead to another period in prison.
"I would like to thank the witnesses who assisted us throughout the investigation and trial."
