"Now that he's been held accountable for the crimes he committed in Pierce County, I hope this ends Mr. Powell's 15 minutes of fame," Lindquist opined.
As it turns out, however, Powell's headline grabbing will stretch at least while longer, as the father of Josh Powell has officially appealed his two-and-a-half year sentence and will be taking at least one more swing in court in hopes of overturning his conviction.
Steven Powell was found guilty in mid-May of the voyeurism charges, stemming from his illegal videotaping of two neighbor girls in their bathroom from an upstairs bedroom of his home. He was sentenced for these crimes last Friday. The images that led to Powell's conviction were discovered by authorities serving a search warrant at his residence, looking for evidence of his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.
According to reports, that search, which Powell's lawyers have contended was illegal, may well prove to be the basis for his appeal.
