STEVEN POWELLMONROE, Wash. – Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing Puyallup mom Susan Cox Powell, is set to be released next month from pirson time served.

The Department of Corrections confirmed Powell’s release date as May 23.

Powell has been held at the Monroe Correctional Complex since he was convicted of voyeurism last summer. Police say he took pictures of young girls in his neighborhood without their knowledge. He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison last June.

His daughter-in-law, Susan vanished from her Utah home in 2009. Her husband Josh was the focus of the investigation until he killed himself and the couple’s two children last year in a blaze that burned down his home.

    convicted last summer, sentenced to 2 1/2 years, to be released next month. I never was good with math but that doesn't seem to add up.

    We live a few doors down from this creeper. I think I can safely say I speak for most of our residential neighborhood when I say, please pack your crap and get the hell out of our neighborhood. We dont want you back. Pervert should have to register as a sex offender! I know when my kids are outside playing I'll be watching his house like a hawk.

    I hope that when he comes out he tells all he knows…unfortunately because of credibility issues related to this conviction, it is likely that no one will believe anything he has to say. He has been sitting in jail for a long time with nothing else to do, could he have a book to shop when he gets out? I would bet that he has been to the law library in jail, and is collecting munitions to use in court when the civil process starts. I don't believe he had anything to do with Susan's disappearance other that being Josh's father, but I'm sure he knows quite a few details….

    But then again credibility issues…will anyone believe him?
