The defendant who slit his throat in a Palo Alto courtroom Tuesday was transferred from Stanford Medical Center to the jail infirmary Wednesday. Hospital officials said Kevin Stevenson was in good condition and would receive medical treatment in jail. Stevenson, 38, slashed at his throat and wrist Tuesday after Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Diane Northway indicated she would revoke his bail and send him to prison to serve a four-year prison sentence. Stevenson, who had smuggled a small knife into the court, yelled, “Don’t touch my blood. I have AIDS,” when a court deputy tried to restrain him. Doctors performed emergency surgery Tuesday night. Stevenson, of Sunnyvale, had been freed pending appeal of his drug possession and petty theft conviction because of his medical condition. He violated the terms of his electronically monitored release when he was arrested for passing a $5 counterfeit bill at a Home Depot store. Stevenson’s post-conviction attorney, Kent Russell, of San Francisco’s Russell & Russell, said his client has a history of mental health problems.
