(Newser) – Steve Powell, father-in-law of the missing Susan Powell, has been found guilty of 14 counts of voyeurism in Washington state, reports CBS. The charges originated with Susan Powell's disappearance, after police say they found pictures of her in a search of Steve Powell's home. Yesterday's convictions weren't based on those images, but rather others that showed two neighborhood girls, then ages 8 and 10, in the bathroom. Steve Powell's lawyer questioned whether his client had taken the images, and contended that the motive wasn't sexual gratification: "There are people who are nosy, who like to spy on their neighbors," he said.
