Raised in Morrisania, Stevenson has followed the footsteps of his father, former District Leader Edward Stevenson, Jr., and his grandfather, Assemblyman Edward A. Stevenson, Sr., by serving in Bronx Community Board 3 under the administrations of Bronx borough presidents Fernando Ferrer and Adolfo Carrion, Jr. After coming up short in several attempts to win the 79th Assembly seat against both Gloria Davis and Michael Benjamin, Stevenson finally won the seat in 2010 when Benjamin decided to step down from the seat after flirting with challenging Jose Enrique Serrano for Congress.
On April 4, 2013, federal prosecutors announced that Assemblyman Stevenson had been charged with bribery, conspiracy, and other related charges. Federal Prosecutors said Stevenson took bribes in exchange for drafting, proposing, and agreeing to enact legislation to aid his co-defendants' businesses. Authorities also said that a second, unidentified assemblyman charged in a sealed indictment, had cooperated in the corruption probe, and would resign to avoid prosecution. That member was later identified by the media as Assemblyman Nelson Castro.
On January 13, 2014, Stevenson was convicted of bribery and extortion, and thus vacated his Assembly seat. On May 21, 2014, he was sentenced to three years in prison.
