MONROE, Wash. - Steven Powell will be released from the Monroe Correctional Complex on May 23, according to Washington State Department of Corrections spokesperson Chad Lewis.
Powell began his prison sentence on June 19, 2012. A judge sentenced him to 30 months in prison for taking voyeuristic photographs of two young neighbor girls in various stages of undress.
“Most offenders can get a third of their maximum sentence off if they complete programs, and don’t commit serious and violent infractions,” said Lewis.
In Powell’s case, some time will be subtracted off of his original release date for good behavior.
Within 72 hours of his release he will have to check in with a Community Corrections Officer and follow up with regular appointments. Powell will also have to register as a sex offender with local law enforcement. The details of Powell’s release plan are still being worked out.
Steven Powell is the father of Josh Powell. Josh Powell killed himself and his two young sons in February of last year. At the time of Josh Powell's death he was considered a person of interest by authorities in West Valley City, Utah for the December 2009 disappearance of his wife, Susan Cox Powell.
