KIRO is not the best for live streaming. Right now the video has paused.....or at least for me. Hope this doesn't keep happening.

ETA: If it happens to you for any length of time. Close the page and reopen to SLT and start video again. Worked for me anyway. HTH

There was already a little drama. Steve was just led in and Chuck Cox went to the front of the courtroom to make sure Steve saw him.

stevie's lesson for today, 'masturbation is an entitlement', as per his attornies. I think not, when it involves taking pics of young girls to 'enhance' your 'entitlement'.

Hi everyone. Thanks in advance to any reporting, I am a 3rd shifter and will have to get some sleep here soon. Have waited a long time for this and I pray that Steven Powell is put behind bars for a very very long time.

Glad to see you all here by the way. I know this isn't the justice we were all hoping for but it's going to have to do since that spineless coward Josh took the easy way out of his problems.

I will be back tonight before I have to go to work.

I'd be crawling under the table. Strike that I would plead guilty to avoid having this displayed. But he probably thinks the girls were "very sexual" and were flirting with him.

With the child porn dropped SP is facing the 14 counts of voyeurism I sure was off on stating 70 years it looks like, it must mean if sentenced & served consecutively. I sure hope it's more than 4 years! The article below states:


Powell faces a standard sentence of around four years if convicted, but the state has alleged aggravating factors that could result in a longer term.

The judge threw it out, Wa law, children not possed not child porn....that needs to be changed!

Please dont get me wrong here I dont like this guy one bit. I think he is a perve to the 100th degree. But if you allow the state to break into someone's home and take their camera that has pics of people walking down the street assuming all the rest of the films are benign like that and convict him soley on pics/video of people in everyday poses, then you are opening a big gate for the state to nab just about anyone they want and convict them too. That is alwys the threat when you are on the state's side. I know he is a creep so if the state has this great evidence to prove he is a creep why show pics of people just walking down the street? i saw some of those earlier pics they were just people. Now we know exactly what was on his mind but im afraid of giving the state such power. not for his protextion but for mine and yours.

The pictures of his little neighbor girls using the bathroom and taking baths aren't exactly of "everyday poses." Hidden camera pictures of Susan changing in what she assumes to be privacy aren't exactly "everyday poses." If you have a reasonable expectation of privacy, then it is illegal to film you.

I hear what you are saying. I am wary sometimes of our legal system. Have you seen these documents? http://www.scribd.com/doc/92901743/Steven-Powell-trial-declaration-regarding-items-seized

Yes, alot of pics of women in public. To me, not big deal. I figure if I am out in public, some security camera is filming me, maybe somebody with a camera phone. I hope he gets nailed on taping those little girls. They expected privacy in their own homes. The search warrant was to search for Susan's journals, you know. When LE found all of SP's videos, I was afraid that they would be thrown out as inadmissable since the SW was for the journals. (Don't know what the proper legal terms are) But, thank goodness they were not because now I think he is going to prison for voyerism on the minor girls.

I have not read anything about a hidden camera. I see where SP filmed Susan in "everyday poses". But I also read where he filmed Susan and Josh kissing in their bedroom. Did they not close their door? SP states he saw Susan inserting a tampon. Was the door not closed? SP mentions that he filmed Susan at work. Did she not know or did he have some super lens on his video camera? IDK. I was thinking if there were hidden cameras all over his house then LE would have found them during their search and they would have pressed charges against SP for voyerism on Susan. But they did not because they could not determine that Susan was unaware that she was being filmed.

I would like to hear a better explanation of why SP was not charged with voyerism on SP. I know I never will but it is just interesting to me.

Warning: Due to the nature of the trial, graphic content may be discussed and may appear in this video. Viewer discretion is advised.
Never saw this on a courtroom video before.........

The Channon Christian and Chris Newsom trial had this warning. At times the cameraman couldn't pan away fast enough and we unfortunately saw crimes scene photos with the deceased victims in them. Very sad when you consider when we do not see what is shown the victims families do. So horrible.

Thanks to everyone who posted updates today.

Even for sp that is a new low. There may well have been cameras and he removed them. We don't know what was removed, disposed of and destroyed soon after Susan went missing.

When Susan and Josh lived briefly with Steve to save some money for an apartment as newlyweds, they lived in a dining room with a curtain over the doorway. There wasn't a separate bedroom available for them to use.

I didn't read the many-page documents released on Monday describing the picture and videos Steve took...I just couldn't stomach reading about the depths of Steve's evil and filth. But I've read discussions about the documents, and saw comments where people said that Steve "modified a mirror" and slid it under a closed/locked bathroom door so he could see Susan using the toilet. I'm assuming that's how the "tampon" thing happened.

Also, when Susan and Josh briefly lived with Steve at the beginning of their marriage, Steve was living in a different house than his current house. This was in 2001 or 2002. He may have had hidden cameras at his old house many years ago.

If there are lawyers here, I am wondering if the minor girls and/or their parents can sue him civilly for an invasion of privacy. In states where I have lived, it is illegally to videotape someone without their consent. Perhaps this is not the case in WA but if it is, I hope they can sue, and take him for everything he's worth - house, storage unit, car, future earnings in prison.

On stand, Detective Sanders who served search warrant on Defendant's home:

-disc was in box in master bedroom

-3 sub-folders containing voyeurism images from original disc: labeled-taking bath 1; taking bath 2; open window-back house

Wow! What an idiot. He couldn't even code them. The cops were probably very appreciative he did that.

Nothing like being a Captain Obvious when labeling your porn there Stevie Boy....

I'm thinking the prosecution may be avoiding the Susan issue altogether. They may be concerned that on appeal the defense could claim that it was unfair to DSP to connect him to such a high profile crime."

I feel so sorry for the Cox's as Susan's name was barely mentioned. Seems that no one can talk about Susan - yet there were a ton of pictures and video that SP took of her without her knowledge and then took pics of himself masturbating to her pics on the large screen. Sick, twisted and WRONG! Please let the Jurors convict SP for the crimes that he committed against those little girls and let's hope there is a way the Cox's can bring forth charges against the whole Powell family for the crimes SP and JP committed against Susan and the rest of the family covered up for their brother and father!

There were so many incidents that SP thought he might have been caught videotaping women in parking lots - that seemed to excite him even more. Let's give him a "ton of excitement" by convicting him for being the pervert that he is. I would hope a conviction would label him as a Registered Sex Offender for the rest of his natural life!!!

This is a backwards sequenced (sorry for the ackwardness) twitter feed detailing the post-testimony motions on May 14, 2012 in the Steven Powell's criminal voyerism case in Pierce County, WA

from: DNews Crime Team ‏ @DNewsCrimeTeam

That's it for court today. Closing arguments, jury instructions and the case going to the jury tomorrow. #StevePowell

Court reconvening at 8:45 am PST on Tues. #StevePowell

Jury now has 28 instructions to go over. #StevePowell

Court is back in session. #StevePowell

All the attorneys are back in the room. Should be starting this up again in a moment and finish up for the day. #StevePowell

Culpepper is taking a short recess to make final copies of jury instructions. #StevePowell

There are also little differences in each of the photos, such as clothing and things in hallway and around the house. #StevePowell

Culpepper says there were 3 separate folders found on the disc. #StevePowell

Judge has denied the motion. #StevePowell

State says it should be left up to the jury, and it's really an issue for sentencing, if found guilty. #StevePowell

State says each count is based on separate incidents of filming. They don't have to prove if it's on a different day. #StevePowell

State says the defense is trying to shift the burden of proof. #StevePowell

That's what the defense is arguing. #StevePowell

Essentially, the counts (one for each girl) happened on the same day as two other counts he is charged with. #StevePowell

Currie is asking the judge to drop one count for each victim, dropping the charges to 12. #StevePowell

Just a thought as I am watching this; it saddens me that all of the time that Susan has been missing, 2 1/2 years can't boil down to this. josh's heinous, murderous and cowardly actions can't be the end of it. Susan is still missing, her family deserves to know the truth, she must be in a final resting place near her beloved children. If steve powell knows anything, he must speak up. It is a matter of decency.

For us, those who know Susan and those of us who have never met her, it is important to remember Susan and to never stop searching...searching for her, for answers and for justice for her family.

Jury has questions in Steve Powell voyeurism trial

The jury in Steve Powell's voyeurism trial is wondering whether all the items found in his bedroom belonged to him.

That question emerged during deliberations Tuesday, indicating that jurors may have concerns over reasonable doubt

I don't know what is wrong with the SLT website, I've been trying to get the link to the juror instructions and it's gone batty. Just keeps clicking and clicking and never comes up.

Anyway......one of the instructions, that I will hopefully be able to go back and get the docs/links, states one of the stipulations of guilt is that he used the photos for his sexual gradification. Why? He still invaded their privacy...and it was still voyeurism, imo. The trauma he placed upon the girls and family are the same whether he used them for *(&&&^ or not!!!

Alina Powell said she released the video to clear up misconceptions about the relationship between Susan Powell and Alina Powell's father, Susan's father-in-law.


"What other people are saying is that Susan hated my dad so much that she wouldn't have tolerated even the mere presence of him, was deathly afraid of him, or whatever they've tried to claim about her," she said. "But these videos show, at minimum, she at least tolerated him, and was perfectly comfortable with her and her kids being around him. I wouldn't presume to put words in her mouth about whether she loved being around him, but she certainly wasn't adamantly opposed to their spending time with him like others have suggested."

The standard range is 43 months (?) in prison, prosecutors say. (70 years is the max, but he likely won't get that).

IIRC, Chuck Cox said he doesn't want any deals. He wants Powell to stay behind bars.

I hope someone got video of Alina Powell leaving the courthouse. That website she unveiled yesterday was obnoxious.

:seeya: Can her website be linked here ? If not, I understand ... the TOS.

TIA !

Why don't we just go through the news link to get to it. Linking to it from here kinda creeps me out. I mean, it's not against TOS so if you guys want to, it's not a violation. Up to you guys.

That's why I added the things that would contribute to the death penalty.

Also, IMO, all they have to do is go to the mine shaft that was burning and they'll find Susan's body.

I did read this article, but I chose not to view her site. I'm on a guilty verdict high and don't want to ruin it. :rocker:
