Steven Powell Scheduled to Complete Prison Sentence Nov. 4

Steven C. PowellOLYMPIA – Steven C. Powell, 63, is scheduled to complete his prison sentence on or about Nov. 4. A community corrections officer who is part of a specialized sex-crime unit will supervise Powell, who will be a tenant in a privately owned home in Tacoma.

Powell will be required to wear a GPS locator for at least the first 30 days of his community supervision.

He will also be required to attend a sex-offender treatment program and follow the terms of his community supervision, which include getting permission from his community corrections officer to leave Pierce County. A community corrections officer will conduct multiple field contacts each month. Powell will be required to report to his community corrections officer twice each month.

The community corrections officer can place Powell in custody if he violates the terms of his community supervision. The community corrections officer will also connect Powell to resources and treatment designed to help him succeed after he completes his prison sentence.

Powell is currently housed at Monroe Correctional Complex where he is serving a sentence for 14 counts of voyeurism. He started his prison sentence in June 2012 at the men’s reception center in Shelton before he was transferred to the Twin Rivers Unit of Monroe Correctional Complex two months later.

For security reasons, the Department of Corrections does not publicly discuss details about offender transfers.

The Department of Corrections notified Powell’s victims and local law enforcement about his scheduled release date.
