Steven Powell, Father in Law of missing Utah Mother Susan Powell Could be Released from Prison in Less than 1 Year Despite Conviction on 14 Voyeurism Counts of Little Girls
Talk about the punishment not fitting the crime … this story just gets worse and worse.
Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing Utah mom Susan Powell, could actually be released from prison in less than one year even though he was convicted of 14 voyeurism counts. More to the point, he was taking pics and video of two under age neighbor girls. Even though prosecutors asked for 10 years, the judge gave him a slap on the wrist and only sentenced this perv to 2-1/2 years which will translate into less than a year. How sick. I still cannot comprehend how processing child porn got him such a weak sentence. One has to wonder, what is more perverse, Steven Powell taking pics of little girls or the punishment handed down as so-called Justice?
