Steven Powell may be released from prison in year

OLYMPIA -- The father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell may be released from prison in less than a year.
Steve Powell was sentenced earlier this month to 2 1/2 years in prison for recording images of two neighbor girls in their bathroom. After factoring for time served, good time and reductions because he is a nonviolent offender, the state has calculated his potential release date as May 23, 2013.
Prosecutors had asked for Powell to be sentenced to 10 years.
Susan Powell disappeared from her Utah home in 2009, and her husband Josh a focus of the investigation until he killed himself and the couple's two children earlier this year. Steve Powell was arrested last year after authorities investigating her disappearance searched his home in Washington state.
Authorities say they want to speak with Steve Powell about his daughter-in-law's disappearance.
