Crestview Man Sentenced for Fondling Young Girl

A Crestview man will spend at least 10 years in prison for fondling a 13-year-old girl.

Circuit Judge John Brown sentenced 52-year-old Samuel Edward Stephens Tuesday after a jury convicted him in May of one count of lewd or lascivious conduct.

Stephens had a history of making sexually explicit comments to the victim before he put his hand inside her skirt and groped her at a church event.

Judge Brown also sentenced Stephens to three years probation and designated him as a sexual offender.
