    I'm getting so I'm feeling the same way about Steven Powell as I did about Brian David Mitchell. I can't stand to look at him.

    Is he being charged for being obsessed over Susan?
    If not, then why would they be admitted at his trial?

    "Will Steven Powell diaries obsessing over Susan be admitted in trial"?


    Does it really matter? Pretty much everyone knows about it by now already.

    How out of reach of reality is the judge in this case? "In making his decision, Culpepper noted that prosecutors could not show that Powell directed the girls to pose provocatively or in an explicit nature and said the evidence did not fit the charge. The girls, ages 10 and 8, were innocently getting into a bathtub and were allegedly photographed without their knowledge, Culpepper noted."

    WHAT??? I wonder if his opinion would change if these were photographs of his daughters or granddaughters? Do you have to ask children to pose indecently before you can be convicted of this charge against children? This person was taking illegal photographs of innocent children in order to gain sexual gratification. In who's universe (apart from Judge Culpepper's)does that not constitute a crime???

    Mr Powell has affected so many lives with his sexual deviancy. Please let this judge see sense, and not allow these two young children become his next two victims. With such a person as Mr Powell, each "victory" becomes a reason not to change behaviour.

    This is why the general authorities warn against pornography and the evils it can bring.
    What more can be said?

    People make themselves sick by making evil choices. At some point Steven Powell make that choice, it has damaged generations and now the lives of many people have been destroyed.

    And now everyone can tell the difference between being ill and being sick.

    Defense attorney Travis Currie stated that Steven Powell’s diaries are not relevant to his current charges. He also argued the diaries only prove an obsession with Susan Powell and NOT a pattern of voyeurism on the part of his client.

    Good luck convincing any human being of that, Mr. Currie.
