The search warrant allowed for "the seizure of seven journals that belonged
to Susan Powell, any type of digital or electronic device that could store
copies of Susan Powell's journals, "any other fruits or instrumentalities
determined to be evidence of kidnapping, homicide and obstruction of
justice"Good luck to Steven Powell's attorneys on their phony
Just merely more thieving corrupt defense attorneys wanting more taxpayer monies
thats what this is all about!
It's no wonder that this kind of garbage thrives, there will always be lawyers
who will do their very best to get the perverts free no matter what. How would
these guys feel if it had been their children?
Oh my word. Gotta love attorneys these days! Amazing. Has anyone bothered to ask
them the hard question, "Why?" Just saying .....
If the police broke the law, then the evidence is not admissible.Dont get
down on the defense attorney for doing his job.Without defense attoneys;
we would have anarchy and facism.
Re: VIDAR 4:46 p.m. March 6, 2012"If the police broke the law, then
the evidence is not admissible."You can't blame a suspect's
attorneys to earn their money by challenging the limits of a legally obtained
search warrant. That doesn't mean a judge is going to buy into their argument.
If the search warrant included search of an electronic device I should think
that would include computers.My prediction: The evidence obtained
during this legal search will be admissible in court. Who knows, maybe the
jury will laugh the kiddie porn off as harmless entertainment.
Way too many lairs..er..lawyers in this country. All evidence should be
available in a trial. If the authorities got it illegally, they should be
TJEagle Mountain, UTperhaps we should just get rid of search
warranty altogether. And that pesky thing called the bill of rights.Anytime the police want to search your home, person, or car, they can without
any restrictions.And to rifleman; I said If, if the evidence was
obtained illegally, then it should be thrown out. The police need to obey the
law like anyone else.
Re: VIDAR 9:54 a.m. March 7, 2012"And to rifleman; I said If, if the
evidence was obtained illegally, then it should be thrown out."You'll get no argument out of me on that point. There is nothing pesky about
the 4th Amendment. The judge will determine whether the search warrant that was
lawfully executed allowed for a search of the suspect's computer. From what
we've been told it did. If the judge rules that the evidence is admissible the
jury will be allowed to see it. Just because the defense attorneys
challenge the scope of the search warrant is no reason to believe they will
@ VidarThe search warrant obtained by prosecutors requested
permission to Âany and all digital copies that would be stored on Joshua
PowellÂs computer(s) or digital storage devices, Steven PowellÂs
computer(s) or digital storage devices, and any other computer(s) or digital
storage devices that Joshua or Steven Powell would have access to in any common
part of the residenceÂ.While this may come as a disappointment
to Steven Powell and those few who are supportive of his behavior the chances of
this evidence being thrown out by the judge are very minimal. But you can't
blame his lawyers for giving it the old college try.
