The father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for recording images of two young neighbor girls in their bathroom.
Last month, Steven Powell was convicted of 14 counts of voyeurism for taking pictures of the neighbor girls.
A standard sentence is about five years but prosecutors asked for an exceptional sentence of 10 years because Powell never showed remorse or acknowledged that taping the girls was wrong.
His attorneys sought zero to 12 months, saying it's not clear exactly when Powell took the pictures, and it could have been before the state made voyeurism a ranked felony in 2006.
Powell is the father-in-law of Susan Powell, who disappeared from her home in West Valley City, UT, in late 2009. His son and her husband, Josh Powell, killed himself and two sons in a February fire at a home in Graham.
