Steve Powell guilty!

To the surprise of no one, Steve Powell, father-in-law of the missing Susan, has been found guilty of thirteen counts of voyeurism. In spite of defense attempts to create reasonable doubt, one juror said the prosecution “just presented a better case.”

Powell is scheduled to be sentenced June 15. He faces a maximum of five years in prison for each of the 14 counts.

Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said his office will seek an exceptional sentence based on the large number of convictions (14). If the judge allows that, Powell faces a sentence of up to 10 years.

It is not clear whether Powell could serve consecutive sentences for each count, which could amount to a 70 year sentence. This is his first criminal conviction.

    what a shock. If only this piece of human scum would just finally man up and tell everyone where susan is buried and what happened. His son is dead,he’ll be going to jail for years, he has nothing to lose.

      I don’t think he knows.

        i think he knows something and may have even been involved.

        I think if he did know anything he would have coughed it up long ago to avoid the prison sentence he’s facing now.

      If he does, then since he has never been to prison before and is not a young or strong man, perhaps spending a little quality time in his state correctional facilities where they don’t like people like him, may influence him to loosen his tongue in exchange for a transfer to protective custody.
