The petition also states that a drug test conducted by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) showed that Stevenson tested positive for methamphetamine.

According to the Illinois State Police’s Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth database, Stevenson had also been previously convicted of aggravated battery of a child in Madison County. At the time of that offense, the victim was 2 years old while Stevenson was 20, according to state police records.

Stevenson faces two Class 1 felonies in this latest case presented by the Granite City Police Department. Court documents indicate he was remanded to jail until his initial appearance in court.

The issuance of charges is based solely upon probable cause and is not an indication of guilt. All subjects charged with criminal offenses are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
