Taxpayers won’t pay for Steven Powell treatment

TACOMA — A judge has rejected Steven Powell’s request to have taxpayers pay for his court-ordered sex offender treatment after a voyeurism conviction.
Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper agreed Friday with the state attorney general’s office that Powell cited the wrong statute when he made his request.
The News Tribune reported that Powell conceded the point in court, saying he wasn’t able to go to a law library after he got out of prison.
He was released late last month after serving 30 months for taking photographs of two young neighbor girls.
Powell, 64, is the father-in-law of Utah mother Susan Cox-Powell, who disappeared in 2009. His son, Josh Powell, was a suspect in her death before he killed himself and his two children in an explosive house fire in 2012.
