I feel so sorry for Susan Powell's parents. Not only was their daughter married to an ax-murderer at heart, an abuser, a future mass/serial killer, they lost their two grandsons when the courts ordered them turned over to a man who was evil incarnate. Now they have to be tortured by the high profile nature of this pervert, probably the source of all the evil this family has suffered.
Bless these grandparents.

The evidence obtained as a result of legally obtained search warrants would be irrefutable to a jury. For that reason the defense has no option but to contest the validity of the search warrants. It happens all the time and judges typically rule in favor of the legality of those warrants.

You can't blame the defense for trying. That is what they are getting paid for.

My daughter lived in a neighborhood clouded by the disappearance of a mother, whose husband said she left because of marital discord. People who knew her well said she would have never left her two sons. Eventually the man married the boys cargiver, and petitioned to have his wife declared dead so he could access funds connected with her (despite his claim that she "left"). One neighbor reported to the police that he observed the man pouring a concrete slab in a shed. My daughter spoke with the second wife and learned that one son didn't "go places." This all happened in the 1990s. Very recently, because of a "tip," the concrete slab was removed and there were the remains of the vanished wife. The man is incarcerated, the boys grew up being told their mom left, the second wife has a detained murderer spouse and there is a daughter of the second marriage. What leads people to do these horrible deeds? It is SO sad.

There will be a huge public outcry if the courts do not allow the evidence obtained through the search warrant. Any sane and rational judge will allow it.

any sane and rational judge will follow the law and if the people that collected the evidence followed the law then he will allow it if not he will reject it.

Aftermath: Now we know that the evidence was legally seized during the execution of a search warrant signed by a duly appointed judge. Thank heavens this man's civil rights weren't violated.

People involved in kiddie porn need to be locked up and kept away from decent society.
