    . . . and possibly not live long enough to serve his full sentence.


    Especially if they make him serve his sentence where he SHOULD serve his sentence -- in the general prison population instead of protective custody.

    Footnote to Rifleman's comment: Steven Powell is charged with fourteen (14) Class C felonies with a standard sentence of up to five years in prison for each felony conviction. If he is convicted of all fourteen charges and if the maximum sentence is imposed on him for each conviction and if consecutive rather than concurrent sentences are imposed, Steven, now age 61, would serve 70 years (minus whatever is subtracted) and possibly not live long enough to serve his full sentence.

    I agree. Vicitimizing children is inexcusable.

    Hopefully he will be convicted on each count he has been charged with, and hopefully the judge will make him serve his sentences consecutively.

    I suppose this means one of two things:

    1. He really doesn't know anything about the murder or what Josh did with the body.
    2. Police think they are close enough to breaking the case that they don't need his info.

    I hope it's the latter.
