An Akron man will spend the rest of his life in prison for raping a little girl.

Stevens sexually assaulted the four-year-old daughter of an acquaintance while he was babysitting her. When the little girl was picked up, she immediately told what happened. Stevens eventually confessed when confronted with DNA evidence.

Judge Alison McCarty immediately sentenced Stevens to life in prison. He will be eligible for parole in 2023.
