Jury convicts Steve Powell of all 14 voyeurism charges amid search for missing daughter-in-law
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) ' A jury has convicted Steve Powell of all 14 voyeurism charges that stemmed from an investigation into his missing daughter-in-law.
Jurors returned their verdict Wednesday.
Steve Powell looked off into a corner of the courtroom as the verdict was read. Anne Bremner, an attorney who represents Susan Powell's family, smiled.
Authorities brought the voyeurism charges last year after searching his home during their investigation into the disappearance of Susan Powell.
Prosecutors have said the Utah woman was the subject of many of Steve Powell's photos, but those images were not part of the case. Instead, prosecutors focused on images of two young girls who lived next door to Steve Powell.
Susan Powell's family believes Steve Powell has information on her disappearance, and authorities say he has been uncooperative in the investigation. Susan Powell's husband, Josh, killed himself and the couple's two young children earlier this year.
