NC teacher gets 3 years probation for child porn

Steven Adams pleads guilty to child porn (Guilford County Jail)

GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFMY) – Thirty-six months of probation – that’s what 33-year-old Adam Stevens of Greensboro gets for possessing child pornography.

Court documents say Stevens plead guilty to five counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor and was convicted at the end of March.

The judge suspended his sentence and issued the 3 years probation as part of a plea deal.

Stevens also has to register as a sex offender.

Police say they were looking at Stevens as part of a broader child porn investigation that began in September 2015.

Police say Stevens was not arrested – he went to the District Attorney with his lawyer to enter pleas.

His lawyer, Locke Clifford, says Stevens expected charges and opted to make a deal before a warrant was issued for arrest.

Clifford says Stevens resigned from his teaching position at Burlington Christian Academy March 25.

The private school says it wasn’t aware of the investigation until after Adam’s conviction.
