Steve Powell, whose daughter-in-law disappeared in Utah in 2009, has declared bankruptcy.
Powell filed his bankruptcy petition June 19 in federal court in Tacoma, Wash. He lists $289,947 in assets and $2.1 million in liabilities.
Those liabilities include a $1.8 million judgment against Powell for photographing two neighbor girls in various states of undress. To satisfy the judgment, payable to the girls' mother, the Pierce County, Wash., Sheriff's Department auctioned Powell's house in Puyallup.
