Steven Brian Blackston - Repeat Sex Offender - Doesn't Know When to Stop

A registered sex offender from Taylors is facing new allegations that he had sex with a 15-year-old boy, authorities said.

Steven Brian Blackston, 38, is charged in a warrant with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor in connection with a recent incident in Wellford. He is being held at the Spartanburg County jail, records show.

Blackston is identified in the warrant as a registered sex offender who had previously been convicted of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

A 15-year-old boy told a Wellford investigator a sexual act happened inside a man’s vehicle while it was parked on Peterson Drive in Wellford about 12:30 a.m. on June 18, an officer wrote in an incident report.

The teen’s mother had earlier reported him as a runaway, who had gone out of his window and left in a Honda Civic, the officer wrote.

The teen’s stepfather told police that he later found the teen inside a vehicle with a man at a store at Fort Prince Boulevard and Mustang Drag Road, the officer wrote.

The stepfather said the man wasn’t wearing any clothes, and the teen was wearing only gym shorts and socks, the officer wrote.

A warrant lists Blackston’s address as being on Ginger Lane, while an incident report and booking report says he lives on Weehawken Circle. Both addresses are in Taylors.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
.........Sarah Tofte

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
