Steve Powell's legal troubles may not be overLegal troubles of missing Utah woman's father-in-law may not be over; attorney plans lawsuit
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) ' The voyeurism conviction of a missing Utah woman's father-in-law may not be the last of his legal troubles.
An attorney who represents the teenage girls at the center of Steve Powell's voyeurism trial said Thursday they plan to file a lawsuit against him.
Lawyer Anne Bremner also represents the family of Susan Powell, the daughter-in-law of Steve Powell who has been missing since 2009.
Bremner said the lawsuit should be filed in the next few weeks and will accuse Steve Powell of causing emotional distress and violating the girls' right to privacy. She says the teens don't expect any substantial damages but hope the lawsuit continues to put pressure on Steve Powell.
Susan Powell's family believes Steve Powell knows something about her disappearance. Authorities say he's been uncooperative in that investigation.
