Steven E. Mays, Jr., 41, has pled guilty to Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor – 2nd degree. 

Mays was sentenced to 13 years incarceration by Circuit Court Judge D. Craig Brown. This crime is classified under South Carolina law as a “no parole” offense. 

The minor victim, who was fifteen years old at the time of the assault, was present at the Lexington County Judicial Center for sentencing. She addressed the court and submitted a victim impact letter which detailed the aftermath of the assault and the emotional trauma that she endured. 

In August of 2015, Mays sexually assaulted the minor victim at his residence, located at 1515 Busbee Road, Lot 15, in the Gaston area of Lexington County. Following the assault, DNA evidence was obtained which corroborated the victim’s report. The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department conducted the investigation and forensic evidence in the case was analyzed by the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
