Sexual assault civil charges[edit]

In 2013 a judgment was entered against Powell for sexual assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress for $153,095.50.[2][3] According to plaintiff's attorney, several attempts to collect the debt from the actor in Louisiana had been unsuccessful, so the judgment was recorded in California to garnish the actor's wages.[4]
