Is Stephen Henry Bear heading back to Chelmsford Crown Court?

Stephen Henry Bear, 33, from London will appear in court again on 4th March 2024 following an appearance at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday 26th January 2024, for a hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Bear had previously been convicted of voyeurism, disclosing private sexual images without consent and breach of bail conditions. This hearing was to determine how much Bear had profited from his actions. Police believe Bear made more than £22,000 from his crimes.

The hearing on 4th March is to determine whether this money will be paid as compensation to the victim or as a confiscation order.

The victim in the case, Georgia Harrison, previously thanked Essex Police saying: “It changed my life. My only option was to go to the police and thank God I did. Two years of hard work from Essex Police and I really do feel like I’ve got my justice.”

Chief Superintendent Claire Talbot said:

“This money does not place a value on the damage caused by Bear and his offences, which will stay with the victim forever.

“Our priority throughout has been to hold Bear accountable for his actions and get justice for the victim.

"Our specialist officers from our Economic Crime Unit have undertaken hours of work to determine how much was made as a result of these crimes.

"The fact that Bear profited from the humiliation he caused Georgia Harrison is despicable. I commend Georgia, not just for her strength throughout the investigation but for her actions over the past year which has raised awareness of revenge porn offences and no doubt supported other victims.

"I hope that the conclusion of this hearing today demonstrates that Essex Police will take all measures to ensure justice and will not let criminals believe that crime will pay. This sends a clear message to those who believe that these crimes are acceptable need to reflect on their behaviour before you are held to account.”
