He arrived in Cayman this week following successful extradition from the US, where he has citizenship.
Stephens lived in Bodden Town when he was in Cayman and working with local athletes as a track coach with his wife. He is alleged to have indecently assaulted a teenager but left the jurisdiction some twelve months ago, after the young girl made the report and well before the charges were laid by police in June 2016.
Born in Trinidad, Stephens is a sprinter specialising in the 400 metres who competed in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics but did not get past the heats.
In 2009 he failed a drugs test at an international competition, testing positive for Oxandrolone, Stanozolol and Tamoxifen. He was banned from competition for two years for the infraction.
