LAWYERS for the former Carlton star are appealing his eight month jail sentence and his conviction for bashing and threatening his ex-girlfriend.

Stevens, 35, was found guilty of smashing his ex-girlfriend’s face into a kitchen bench and threatening to kill her and her father. He will return to court in April.

His 12 charges include assault, intentionally causing serious injury, threatening to kill and threatening to inflict serious injury.
He also pleaded guilty to breaching an intervention order after sending 2,500 text messages to the woman. The former footballer was ordered to serve eight months jail time, a 12 month community corrections order and pay a $400 fine.
Stevens’ lawyers are also appealing the penalty for the intervention order breach. In sentencing Stevens earlier on Wednesday, Magistrate Nunzio La Rosa said he showed no remorse and wouldn’t hesitate to manipulate the victim both psychologically and emotionally. He said after police laid charges against Stevens, he twice called the victim and threatened her.


Nick Stevens, former Carlton and Port Adelaide player, jailed over domestic violence charges

Updated 59 minutes ago

Former AFL footballer Nick Stevens, who showed “no remorse” after bashing his former partner, has been released on bail after being sentenced to eight months in jail on charges relating to domestic violence.

Stevens was found guilty in January of assault, threats to kill and intentionally causing injury to his ex-partner while they were dating in 2012 and 2013.

The 34-year-old, who played 231 games for Carlton and Port Adelaide before retiring in 2009, told his former girlfriend he was going to kill her and her dad after smashing her face into a tiled kitchen wall, the court heard.

He also caused grazing to her face on a separate occasion by pushing her head into the outside wall of a house, and pushed and kicked her when she threw wine at him during a fight.

In sentencing, Magistrate Nunzio La Rosa said Stevens had shown no remorse for his actions.

The magistrate said the pair had lived together and loved each other but “violence by men against women, put in an intimate setting, is to be opposed in stern terms”.

“That your career has suffered there is no doubt, but there is no legal basis to differentiate him from others simply because they have more to lose or have lost more,” Mr La Rosa said.

Stevens’ lawyer launched an appeal against the sentence and the former AFL star was released on bail until the hearing in April.

Outside court Stevens told reporters he respected the court’s decision and had no further comment.

The Ringwood Magistrates Court previously heard Stevens had also breached an intervention order more than 2,500 times in two months, mostly in text messages to his former girlfriend.

Many of the messages were abusive and threatened self-harm, the court also heard.

Stevens pleaded guilty to breaching the intervention order.

He had been coaching SANFL club Glenelg but was sacked after being found guilty of the charges.

  1. Dont you know he is an ex professional fottbball player. They get extra concessions over the rest of us commoners. He should be behind bars until the next hearing at the very least.

  2. Hope his discount sentence gets doubled on appeal, to 16 months minimum jail. If he wasn’t a famous footballer he would I thought would have got more than 8 months. but his lawyers have somehow weaselled him out on bail, typical ! He should have pleaded insanity or blamed, ice made him do it excuse, like footballer Benno Cousins. He might have only been sentenced to the nut house then for some psychobabble therapy and anger management course for a month or so!… In any case a 8 month jail sentence who ever it is , is not a deterrence to trying to sell the stop domestic violence message to angry thug bully violent men!…
