AFL star who sent hundreds of lurid texts and explicit videos to a woman, claiming that he believed it was his GIRL who used a different identity to catch him
- Nick Stevens exchanged more than 600 messages with a woman, Samantha Nash
- He also sent sexually explicit photos & videos, but denies that he ever met her
- The former Carlton player argued for perjury in 2014
- He claimed that the woman he texted was his girlfriend who tried to catch him
Former AFL player Nick Stevens told a court that he thought the woman on the receiving end of his lurid text messages was his partner who used a fake name to try and catch him.
The former Carlton player pleaded guilty to perjury in December 2014 when, sworn to tell the truth, he told a magistrate that he had never met a woman named Samantha Nash.
The 39-year-old fights domestic violence against a former partner, for whom he was later convicted and served a sentence.

Stevens testified that & # 39; (he) has never met a Samantha Nash & # 39 ;.
& # 39; To this day, I don't think a Samantha Nash is actually a Samantha Nash, & # 39; he said at the time.
However, Mrs. Nash is a real person with whom Stevens exchanged more than 600 text messages in November 2012.
He also spoke to her on the phone a number of times and sent her sexually explicit photos and a video of himself masturbating.
His former partner received a Facebook message from Mrs. Nash in December 2012 in which he said that Stevens had invited her to his house and put her under pressure to see him.

During his trial of perjury in County County on Monday, Stevens' attorney Jason Gullaci asked what he meant when he told the magistrate that he & # 39; had never met a Samantha Nash & # 39 ;.
& # 39; That is that I have never personally met her and I have never spoken to her personally, & # 39; Stevens replied.
At the time of his 2014 testimony, Stevens thought his ex and her friends & # 39; might have set up a Facebook alias … to catch me cheating & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Do you believe that was correct at the time? & # 39; Mr. Gullaci asked.
& # 39; Yes, & # 39; said Stevens on Monday.
& # 39; It all seemed useful that she (his ex-partner) knew all this knowledge right away. & # 39;
He admitted that he cheated on his partner at least once, but could not remember whether he had sent explicit texts to other women.

Mrs. Nash told the jury earlier that she met Stevens at the end of 2012 during a football event and talked to him for five to seven minutes.
Stevens denied having met her.
The process continues.
