There should be EXIF information, or some kind of date information, in the photo
files, I would think. Or at least comparison of the children's ages from
then to now. Something to keep this....person....some place where he can't
harm anyone. His sick, disgusting actions have caused harm to many people; not
only the children whose pictures he took, but because of his general lifestyle
he has harmed his family, and his grandchildren whose lives were taken by his
equally troubled son Josh. I hope a requirement of the court will be successful
completion of sex offender counseling, at the very least.
Maybe a 1-year sentence might have been acceptable if Mr. Powell had taken
responsibility for his crimes but he pled not guilty and was thereafter
convicted by a jury of his peers.A lengthy prison sentence might
possibly get him to thinking about the error of his ways.
Please, may he serve long and hard.
