Steffan Sylvester, 20, jailed for sex with underage students


Steffan Sylvester, 20, will spend the next 18 months in prison after confessing to unlawful sexual intercourse with two underage girls.


The defendant pleaded guilty to one count of sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 14 and one count of sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 16.


The incidents, which involved multiple sexual encounters with girls 13 and 14 years, occurred between June 2018 and April 2019.


The defendant was 18 years old at the time of the incidents and befriended the girls while he was employed as an assistant volleyball coach at their school.


Sylvester was fired after the principal became aware of the relationships and the girls’ parents were notified.


The defendant was also warned by a police officer and the father of one of the girls to stay away from the girls since they were below the age of sexual consent.


However, the relationships continued and Sylvester was later arrested.


He applied for a Goodyear Indication and pleaded guilty after learning what his sentence would be.

He was sentenced to 18 months on the charge of sexual intercourse with a female under 14 and 12 months on the charge of sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 16.


The charges were ordered to run concurrently so Sylvester will serve a total of 18 months in prison.

  1. Am I reading this right? 18 months for unlawful sex with 2 underage girls and only get 18 months? Is this a joke?

  2. That’s 18 YEARS, right? Not 18 MONTHS. Has he been casterated yet, or wasn’t that ordered by the judge. No pediphiles should be allowed to keep their nuts.

    • Read more learn more dummy. Statutory rape is based on the notion that a person under a certain age cannot consent to sexual contact or activity because he or she lacks the maturity or judgement necessary to make a knowing choice about sexual activity.

  3. Something just occur to me and I am inviting Mr Pompey to guide me on this.

    Now the law or justice system should be percieved as balanced now,

    A female below 16 cannot give consent however she knowingly participate in an unlawful sexual act.

    The male participant is arrested, charged, successfully prosecuted and sent to prison and

    The female that is also complicit in the unlawful act is not prosecuted. HOW COME Mr Pompey?

    The female is treated as a victim WHY?

    Did both persons not plan and execute a crime? So why or how one of the deliberate participant get converted to victim status? Both were complicit.

    If two people plan and execute a crime both are perpetrators.

  4. I do understand the the police is guided by the law. However the details would be in the drafting of the legislation.

    Do you think the legislation is equitable?

  5. Therefore in reality girls below the age of 16 is free to engage in as much unlawful sexual activities as their heart desires because the law excluded them.

  6. Parents please tell your boys that inspite being teenagers like these girls its an OFFENSE to have SEX with them even if it’s consented.
