Former Rochester anti-violence advocate Joyce E.“Joy” Powell was found guilty of second-degree murder this morning by an Orleans County jury .

Powell, 49, is currently serving a 16-year prison term for a prior conviction on burglary and assault charges.

She was convicted today of the murder of John Rutledge, 37, of Rochester, who was found dead in a ditch on the side of Sawyer Road in Carlton, Orleans County, on June 6, 1992. He had been shot several times.

Powell and Shaliq Reed, 36, were charged with the slaying in December 2009 after State Police reopened the investigation. Police said Powell and Reed were involved in drug trafficking with Rutledge and alleged they killed him in a dispute over money.

Reed, who is serving a prison term of 25 years to life for fatally shooting a Rochester man in a dispute over a woman in 1997, was acquitted by a jury after a trial in September.

Powell is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 1.

Powell became an outspoken anti-violence advocate after her release from prison in 1995, after she had served two years on a drug conviction. She became a minister and self-proclaimed anti-crime activist. Her efforts intensified in 2000 after her son was shot to death during an argument over drugs.

In 2007, she was convicted for an October 2006 incident in which a woman was beaten in her Copeland Street home, pepper-sprayed and tossed through a front window. The woman suffered a fractured spine and lacerated spleen.

An appellate court denied Powell’s appeal of that conviction in December.
Typical black using the race card to try and get out of jail free again. Anti-violence and uses a gun to violently KILL another druggie she had dealings with. I hope they hang her high from the bell tower in the city square although she deserves much more. typical black says one thing and ydoes just the opposite, at least she will be off the streets for a long time! Give her 55 years to life and no time off for good behaviour either, Thats why they are in there anyway, to behave!.

I'm with ya there. I have never known such an evil heart such as Joy powell. She is evil evil and is capable of murder. I know nothing about this case but Joy has allways been a grown bully, a user a manipulater. She's calling the race card and the preacher card. Everyone knows she was a fake preacher that did not practice what she preached. She was a very open lesbian so how can she stand behind being a preacher. She was known in the gay population for violence. Known for getting weak people who were also afraid of her to jump those she hated in fights. Ask around Rochester in the gay population. You will get some awful stories on her. She robbed people after she beat them down. She was known for threatening many women,especially her girlfriends. She's mental. She scammed her family. Boy if they only knew. She is a joke. She is the type of person that would fall out and think about killing you or having you killed. i am convinced she is guilty of this. When I heard of the assault and beating the lady Robin. I couldn't believe she is still living this life.When she defends herself it is a joke to America. she called police on one of her ex lesbian lovers and had her locked up for a bomb threat that she never made. Now that's evil. Check the police records . I know they are there. Her ex told me and there are more complaints from other girls she beat them. punched their eyes black on a regular. So she did this to herself.

I don't know about typical black. because I am black but Stereotypical is a better word. I agree she is using the race card and anything she can to get out of jail free. When someone has no defense and that's all they CAN say is I didn't do it. lol just like OJay haha All blacks are not ignorant but she is one of the ones that fit the sterotype sir.
