A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles on Friday apologized for incorrectly describing an Upland man arrested earlier this week on child pornography charges as a convicted child molester and registered sex offender.
Evan Craig Stephens, 36, has no prior convictions for child exploitation, said U.S. attorney spokesman Thom Mrozek in a statement released Friday. "On Wednesday, I issued a press release that incorrectly identified an Upland man as a convicted child molester and a registered sex offender. This information is not correct," Mrozek said in the statement. Stephens "does not have any prior child exploitation offenses," Mrozek said.
