TACOMA, Wash. -- A jury has found Steven Powell guilty on 14 counts of voyeurism for taking pictures of girls and women in various states of undress.

Defense attorneys had argued that there was too much reasonable doubt in the case to convict Powell, but jurors disagreed.

 

 

Jurors questioned that evidence during deliberations, asking if the disc was found in boxes containing only Steve Powell's belongings.

Evidence used by prosecutors included photos of young girls in bathrooms, girls changing clothes and at least one video of Powell allegedly touching himself. The photo corresponding to each charge was shown once again to jurors during the prosecution's closing arguments.

Defense attorneys argued reasonable doubt exists and that, "this case is not about what you feel, it's about what you know."

The photos were found on Powell's computer last fall when police searched his Puyallup home. At the time, Powell's former daughter-in-law, Susan Powell, had been missing for nearly two years. Officers were looking for her journals.

A child pornography charge against Steven Powell was thrown out last week.

Photos of Susan Powell were tossed out as evidence because she was not considered one of the alleged victims in the voyeurism case.
