Stephen John Robins – Jarrow, South Tyneside / Whitley Bay / Durham

May 2017: Arrested again for breaching sex offender prevention order

Update: Now living in Whitley Bay

May 2015

A teenager has walked free from court despite admitting sickening sex attacks on a toddler.


Stephen John Robins (17) was spared juvenile detention by a district judge as he feared he would be vulnerable to abuse in custody.

The victim was just three years old when Robins of Jarrow, South Tyneside, sexually assaulted her last year.

Sunderland Magistrates’ Court heard that the assault came to light after the toddler told her mother what had happened.

The case had previously been sent to Newcastle Crown Court but was remitted back to the youth court for sentencing.Robins (who is 18 in December) had pleaded guilty to causing or inciting a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity with penetration.

Robins semen was also found on the victims underwear.

Paul Anderson, prosecuting, said that the teenager’s crime had had a devastating effect on their family.

A consultant paediatrician examined the girl and confirmed there was internal trauma, including bruising and reddening.

The young victim remains emotionally disturbed following the sexual assault. She is waking repeatedly every night fearful of being attacked again.

The combination of the sexual abuse plus the bereavement the child has sustained following the suicide of her grandmother has escalated her emotional distress.The court heard that the grandmother has since committed suicide as a result of feeling guilt that she was not able to protect her grand-daughter from being sexually abused.

The victim said in interview that Robins had abused her multiple times.

The court was told that Robins has shown no remorse for his actions during or after the offences

David Hatfield, defending, asked for his client not to be sent to a young offenders’ institution and, instead, to be given support by a youth offending team.He said: “It would be naive to suggest that co-prisoners at Wetherby would not find out the nature of the offence. To send him there for 12 months would be a very harsh punishment for someone who doesn’t have any previous convictions.

“Of course, this is a serious and nasty offence and rightly an offence that crosses the custody threshold.”

District judge Roger Elsey told Robins: “This was a vile offence, and it has two aggravating factors.

“The first and most obvious is the disparity between your age and the age of your victim. She was a child that you should have been protecting rather than abusing.

“The second is the devastating effect this has had on your victim and her mother. She says the allegations have completely ruined her life.The judge said the impact of the offences on the whole family would be lifelong.

He added: “Your actions have created a number of victims, and this offence is so serious it amply justifies an immediate custodial sentence, and I don’t think a detention and training order could be argued with.

“The only reason I am not imposing an immediate custodial sentence is that the intensive therapeutic work which is necessary to prevent you harming further victims would not carried out. It has to be carried out in the community.

“I am very confident that the mother of your victim will think the sentence I impose is hugely inadequate, but I impose it to prevent further victims from harm from you.”

The court heard that the teenager has no previous convictions apart from cautions.

The teenager was given a 12-month referral order.

He will be supervised for 15 hours a week for the first month, then 10 hours a week the month after.

The judge added: “You will enter into work to address your sexual offending. You will have to admit to yourself what you did because if you don’t, the work would be unsuccessful and the risk of re-offending would remain high.”

The judge also made a sexual harm prevention order for three years, barring the teenager:

Not to engage in any work, recreation or activity in which children aged under 16-years-old are likely to be involved in.

From having contact with anyone under the age of 16 unless a responsible adult aware of his conviction is present.Not without reasonable cause, to enter or remain in any building, tent, caravan, vehicle or similar space knowing a child will be present, without letting a suitable adult knowing the history of sexual offences.

Not to approach or attempt to communicate directly or indirectly by any means whatsoever: Radio, telephone, computer, text message, letter, email or otherwise with any child aged under 16-years-old.

Not to enter Hebburn Lakes primary schoolHe will also have to notify police of any changes to his address.

Judge Elsey added: “If you breach any of these conditions, you will go into custody because that is the only alternative.

And then he only had a light sentance all the above but with 30 months… n he had a year reduction as the cps their side didnt type up the relevant paperwork!!!!… it is an absoloite disgrace that the supposed justice system fails to protect our babies.. as their to over run with prettier crimes like cannabis related crimes… a burglar gets longer sentances than these sick pigs man… haaway man wake up!!

  6. Dear God above has this country gone insane, the stupid idiotic judge has given more thought to the evil paedo than he did to the poor little girl & her family! Surely anyone with half a brain can see how utterly wrong this is! This evil paedo WILL go on to re offend! How many other victims will there be before some judge has the balls to do the right thing!!!
    If i was the judge, he would be locked up & castrated!! He would have to fend for himself in prison & take what ever comes his way, just like he did to that poor innocent child!

  8. Disgusted with this No words to discribe how sick and twisted this sentence,or lack of it will effect the poor family and domino effect,he not only raped a baby but her whole family!!! How can this be preventitive and rehabilitation. He’s walked scot free from a vile crime he will only repeat. This judge is completely bonkers. Custody is the only way he needs to know that society does not accept such vile crimes. Personally I hope the vigilante get him as this is no justice. I know what this crime can do to a three year old personally, doesn’t bare thinking of. God bless the family and long line of victims of this twisted bastard. Very very sad and unbelievable outcome. Disgraceful!!!
