Stevens has been charged by the International Cricket Committee with failing to inform the authorities of an corrupt match-fixing approach whilst he was playing in the Bangladesh Premier League this year, and if found guilty he could be banned for between one and five years.
The ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit charged nine individuals in August in relation to "an alleged conspiracy within the Dhaka Gladiators franchise to engage in match-fixing and spot-fixing activity".
Stevens played in 12 matches for Dhaka as they won the BPL title.
He was once again the lynchpin of the Kent side with bat and ball this year and he finished the season with an astonishing innings against Division Two champions Lancashire.
He hit 205 not out as he led Kent to a massive victory target of 418.
"It could be the last first-class game I play," Stevens told BBC Kent. "I'm very proud and honoured to have done what I've done at Kent and fingers crossed it carries on.
"As everybody knows it's been quite a tough year to be fair since it all kicked off on 8 April.
"It's been going on all summer so it's been an emotional summer and cricket's actually got me by with what's been going on. Fingers crossed it doesn't stop there but there is every chance it could do.
"It's been an emotional summer, emotional end of the day and it (was) great for Kent CC to get over the line and have a first win at home this summer as apparently it was 1872 the last time we didn't have one win at home."
