TACOMA, Wash. — After deliberating for 4 hours Tuesday, the 12-member jury in the Steven Powell case went home for the evening without reaching a verdict.
The jurors will return to the Pierce County courtroom on Wednesday to continue deliberations.
For the prosecution, that means finding Powell guilty of 14 counts of voyeurism. For the defense, it means acquitting Powell because the state failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
In convicted, Powell faces up to five years in prison for each of the 14 counts.
