11:02 am
we're going to break it down for you legally coming up. all right. in other news more witnesses expected to take the stand in the penalty phase of colorado movie massacre trial. expected to testify today the parents of convicted gunman james holmes. there is word that we could hear from holmes himself as early as today. monday his sister choking back tears, talking about her childhood, asking jurors to spare her brother's life. hopefully we'll keep this satellite up.alicia it seem it is defense is doing its best to humanize their client. >> reporter: that's right. the question is what do jurors think of this portrayal of the man who they convicted as having a leave it to beaver ozzie & harriet type of existence as a child. since sentencing began we have heard from friends, family and neighbors of james holmes. here is his second grade
11:03 am
teacher. the second grade teacher explained to the jury that james was friendly considerate and playful. all of the other children wanted to play with jimmy. a lot of people testifying for the defense have referred to this nice kid who fwru into a polite teenager and college buddy. here's the defense and then prosecution as a friend describes holmes's personality. >> would you call him a sweet and gentle guy? >> i think you could use those words to describe him, yes. >> did you know during the time you knew this guy he had a long standing hatred of man kind. >> objection. argumentative argumentative. >> over ruled. >> i didn't know. >> for the testimony of the shooter's childhood the jury may be thinking of this child. veronica sullivan 6 years old, shot four times and killed at the movies. the defense is trying to save their cliend's life and the jury
11:04 am
could begin deliberations thursday. >> that's an interesting juxtaposition there. i understand his sister broke down on the stand. what happened? >> that's right. james holmes younger sister did break town when explaining she still los her brother and is here to support him. >> everything you know about your brother, were you shocked? >> yes. >> is it completely out of the blue for you? >> yes. >> completely out of character for him? >> i thought so. >> defense attorneys said to plan on hearing from james holmes's parents today. at some point the judge will ask holmes if he plans to testify in his own defense basically, and try to save his own life. >> it will be interesting to see if he takes the stand. thank you. new court action for francisco sanchez, the illegal immigrant convicted of seven
11:05 am
felonies and deported fife times before admitting to fatally shooting kate steinley as she walked across a san francisco pier with her dad. her murder shining a spotlight on sanctuary cities like san francisco because it released sanchez despite a request from the feds to keep him detained. the house took action against is it cities blocking federal crime fighting funds for them. joining me now judge andrew
11:06 am
napalitano. this passes and goes to the senate. the president has been vocal. he'll veto it. >> you will know the degree of interest the senators have by the manner in which it gets to the president. if it's a free standing piece of legislation for cities that refuse to enforce federal law, we are going to pull the money we send them. congress can attach strings to spending power so long as the strings don't violate a claus of the constitution. if it is a fre standing piece of legislation the president will veto it. if it's in legislation he must have he'll have a quandary. we don't know in what form it will get there. if he vetoes it as part of a larger package or as free standing legislation this will continue to go on in these cities, one of which we are seated right here and now will continue. >> there are some 200 cities across the country -- >> right. >> a lot of people are wondering, myself included, how did this start and are there any other ramifyications or repercussions for the cities to continue acting as sanctuary cities? >> the process started a long time ago going back to the 1820s. the federal government assessed the states. you have a port. charleston in south carolina. you will collect x dollars in tariffs and remit them to washington, d.c. but if the people in charleston
11:07 am
didn't like that tariff they just wouldn't collect it. fast forward to the fugitive slave era. if you capture a fugitive slave in the north you were to return them to the slave owner in the south. many cities in the north refused to obey the law and were sanctuaries for slaves. there were slaves all over that are sanctuaries for the pro marijuana movement. it's against state and federal law. they don't enforce it. there is a history of federal resistance that essentially is uninterfered with by the federal government unless you get to a calamity like the civil war. >> sanctuary cities have changed what they are supposed to be. that doesn't change anything. in essence you're saying if the president vetoes this it's done. >> without amending the constitution and without using brute force or without a new president which is obviously going to happen one way or another in 18 months. it is difficult to interfere
11:08 am
with this unless you can use the power of the purse to stop it. >> interesting. tools including a chisel and hacksaw blade inside cardboard and frozen ground beef to matt and sweat who used them to cut their way out of the clinton correctional facility on june 6. mitchell will be sentenced september 28 to two and a third to seven years in prison and will pay $6,000 in fines and other fees and will surrender her teaching certificate.
11:09 am
her attorney said they took the deal because of the evidence against her. they were fearful of more charges including conspiracy to kill her husband and rape or sexual assault charges connected to her alleged relationships with both men. >> is that over with? definitely. we are ready to proceed with whatever charges we had for a grand jury in trial if necessary. >> the d.a. said they made another offer to corrections officer gene palmer. he rejected that. the case goes to a grand jury next month. >> joyce mitchell's husband lyle was there. how did he react? >> he was sitting two seats away from me in the front row of the courtroom. when the journalist asked him a question he said i have nothing to say, don't bother me. i have had enough of your lies. you don't print the truth. don't bother me. i offered him a chance to set
11:10 am
the record straight. he looked at me and said well i have been through enough and because of work i cannot say nothing to nobody. his wife's attorney said mitchell is standing behind his wife. he doesn't believe the allegations that she was plotting to murder him. that attorney said mitchell is depressed, anxious and remorseful. there is no question she's sorry. she got in over her head and realizes she made a horrible mistake. she'll do at least two and a third years in prison. probably no more than four and two-thirds years in prison. >> very interesting. rick thank you very much. our legal panel will weigh in whether joyce mitchell is getting a good deal pleading guilty. plus we'll have this. police searching for the suspects after a young man is viciously attacked on his way home from a celebration. the entire incident right there on your screen captured on video. we'll be right back.

11:14 am
welcome back. london police are releasing video hoping to find the suspects in what they call an unprovoked and cowardly attack. 29-year-old victim here on his way home after attending a friend's wedding. you can see he's approached by a group of about ten men on tower bridge. one of the men beats the victim on the head forcing him to the ground. then the other suspects jump in and start kicking him. police describe the suspects as mid teens to 20s and are of south asian descent. the victim is recovering with cuts and bruises. now back to a prison worker helping two murderers escape accepting a plea teal today. joyce mitchell pleading guilty to one count of providing
11:15 am
contraband contraband. she was able to avoid any additional charges for promoting prison contraband conspiracy to commit the murder of her husband lyle mitchell and any sexually related charges. criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor tom kniff is here to break it down. why do you think she accepted the deal? >> it's the carrot and the stick. she would get convicted only of the d felony. two and a third to seven years which she appears to have agreed to and that's an indeterminate sentence in new york meaning at the con clugts of the minimum period she will be eligible for parole. it is possible she could be paroled in a couple of years and will get credit for the month she's already served. the stick is the prosecutors could have stacked more charges on this. the big one being conspiracy to commit murder. >> the idea she could sefb onlyserve
11:16 am
only two and a half years in prison -- she was going to allegedly off her husband. >> the reason the prosecutors didn't want to go down that road in order to sustain the charge and take it to trial they would have had to have got in bed with her ex-lover and use him as a state's witness against her. i imagine the district attorney's aus and governor's office didn't like the optics of the idea of using this escaped murderer as a state's witness in this case. >> why? give me your expertise. >> this case was really about them. they were convicted murderers, horrible people. they escaped, caused the state and the government to expend millions in a manhunt. as unsairy as this defendant is the prison worker she's probably not as bad as those guys and they probably would prefer a conviction instead of getting in bed with these guys. >> i'm thinking wow.
11:17 am
she may have committed murder. >> conspiracy. >> she provided contraband. they were able to romeam the tunnels for months before they escaped and she may only serve two and a half years in prison? maybe i'm not look at other cases. seems light to me. >> it does. the reality is the prosecution is ham strung by what the penal law says. promoting prison contraband in the first degree the highest degree of the charge is a d felony. the legislature sets the sentencing. nonviolent t felony in new york state which is what this is carries a maximum sentence to two and third to seven. the only way for more is to go after a murder charge. >> why no sex charges? she admitted to having sex with one, maybe both. >> the 'rl ti is the sex charge applicable would be rape in the third degree. the idea that a prisoner doesn't have the capacity to consent to sex. that carries a maximum sentence
11:18 am
of four years, less than the prison contraband. they probably couldn't have got much more mileage in terms of sentencing. again in order to sustain it they have to call the escaped prisoner. he would have been the victim of the, quote/unquote, sexual assault. >> that's interesting that he would have been a victim. >> exactly. >> thank you. >> thanks fwret chen. >> let us know what you think about the case. should joyce mitchell have gotten a plea deal after helping the new york prisoners escape? tweet me. use the hashtag # the real story. your comments at the end of the show. workers at one atm company mistakenly leave behind a large bag of cold hard cash. there it is. how much was in there? then what happened to it? plus another batch of hillary clinton's e-mails about to be released. there are so many tichbt investigations and document dumps it's almost a maze. right? ed henry breaking down where we
11:19 am
stand with her e-mails and whether we'll ever see her server. remember that? he's next. >> at this point the best thing for mrs. clinton to do is to come clean.

the koch brothers extended an invitation to gop presidential candidates including jeb bush ted cruz marco rubio and scott walker inviting them to make their cases directly to a group of wealthy conservatives next week. but some other republicans, well some other white house hopefuls got snubbed. all this comes a little more than a week before the first presidential gop debate on fox. joining me now simon rosenberg, larry o'connor host of mornings on the mall and editor at large at ij good to see you, guys. >> hi gretchen. >> good to be here. >> larry, let me start with you. the koch brothers are very influential in giving out tons of money that anyone needs to become president. apparently they have invited some of the gop contenders there. but not all.
11:33 am
what do you make of it? >> of course they give out a lot of money to super pacs and organizations that help people become president. they can't give much to the candidates. i make of it that they want to hear what very specific messages the very specific candidates have to give. i know they are pretty familiar with walker rubeo. i'm surprised to see jeb bush included in the list. i will be honest. when grassroots conservatives who are the target market for the koch brothers and jeb bush they don't think of him as going against the export-import bank he decided he's against but 20 years ago his business was helped by. i think jeb bush has the hardest job. >> and carly fiorina will be there. rand paul was invited but i don't think he's going. i'm not sure about john kasich. he apparently is liked by some of those within the koch
11:34 am
organization but i'm not sure if he will be there or not. what do you make of the list? >> and no donald trump. >> exactly. >> the guy who is i think, running what has to be seen as a serious campaign. we didn't know if he could last. he was a flash in the pan, some people said. he seems tushl and sustainable. the big question for him is tuz he turn into a more conventional candidate? does he hire staff? does he really try to win this thing? i think it will be one of the most interesting things to watch in the republican race in the next few weeks. he's a serious canada at that time. >> i will get to it in a little bit. maybe also because they know he doesn't need the dough. just thinking outside the box there. newly announced fwop presidential candidate john kasich is gaining ground in new hampshire. new poll puts him in a tie for third place with wisconsin governor scott walker. both behind donald trump who is in first place and fwo nor jeb
11:35 am
bush who is right behind him. timing of the kasich bump important because it comes ahead of the first gop presidential debate right here on fox next thursday night. of course only the top ten -- they will have others in the forum before at 5:00 p.m. eastern but the top ten will be 9:00 p.m. eastern time. what do you make of the surge for kasich? >> i'm surprised. although because it is specific in new hampshire it may make more sense. senator rudi it is man of the graham rudi dts man law to reign in the federal budget and the deficit came from new hampshire. new hampshire has always been a budget hawk kind of state and a deficit hawk state. that's john kasich's wheel house. he was chairman of the committee when newt gingrich wrestled bill clinton into a balanced budget. it is an outliar to new hampshire. i doubt there is kasich fever in the nation. people aren't clamoring for
11:36 am
kasich talk. >> very interesting. simon, what do you think? >> i'm not sure it's real. he may have gotten a bump with the announcement. the fox debalt will be huge. important, early moment in the race. one of the things i'm looking forward to is seeing the debate on immigration. you will see cruz and trump who's made immigration into a national issue going head to head with jeb bush who has come out for legal status for undocumented immigrants. came out for state hood. >> and marco rubio potentially. >> the puerto rico thing could be a real issue, too. i think you will see -- i'm most interested in the back and forth. there are real differences between the candidates on that issue. i think we'll see a lot of it next week. >> all right. very interesting. we'll all be watching. simon, larry, see you soon. >> simon rode his bike today to help keep hillary carbon neutral. >> he's contributing to the off
11:37 am
sets. >> absolutely. >> 90 degrees here. no way. >> i expect you on a bike tomorrow larry. >> yeah right. >> time for my take. if anyone tells you they know who will be the republican nominee for president, they're lying. no one knows. and that's what makes the process so fascinating. right now kasich and fiorina are making a push in the polls. today want to be among the ten on stage for the fist te bait but possibly the biggest surprise to the pundits has been the rise of donald trump. most said a trump candidacy couldn't be done that trump would never run, that his comments about illegal mexican rapists would stop him before he started, and his attack on john mccain would be the end. yet he has a huge lead in new hampshire and is a close second in iowa. next week on the debate stage, who will decide to take on trump and who will lay low?
11:38 am
those thus far who tried to throw a punch have been excoriated by trump and that's what makes politics fickle. who ever thought one of the most important strategies this election cycle would be how to handle a guy named trump. you can always get my take on my facebook every day and at fox now we are up to 20 private planes helping in the search for the two teenage boys who disappeared during a fishing adventure on friday. the families of perry cohen and austin stephanos say private planes continue to search as they have since they vanished. this as we learn perry wasn't allowed in the ocean just in the nearby river. search teams spotted their over turned boat off the coast on sunday. meantime the u.s. coast guard is expanding the search as far north as van, georgia. quite a distance
11:39 am
south to cape canaveral in an effort to fine find the boys. sarah peterson joins me now. great to have you on the real story. i know you have been doing exclusive reporting including the fact that the families have now 20 private planes up and looking for them. what else do you know about that? >> well the planes are searching outside the coast guard area. the family is grateful for the coast guard and their state of the art technology. they have also raised i believe, the last time i checked, $95,000 for this continued private search as well. just to do whatever they can to bring their boys home. >> okay. hold on a second if you will. we have breaking news coming in now on tom brady. here is the alert. apparently the four-game suspension has been upheld now by the nfl commissioner roger goodell. he upholds the four-game
11:40 am
suspension against the new england patriots quarterback. the star quarterback tom brady. te flat investigate became a huge story right before the super bowl when they were playing in the conference championship game. the deflategate scandal erupted into the fact that apparently tom brady and some of his training staff deflated footballs and some say it made it easier for him to throw the ball and for receivers to catch it. now the four-game suspension has been upheld by roger goodell. remember he made the decision that he was going to hear the case by himself although there were tons of people in the room when it happened a few weeks ago. he was going to hear the case and he himself though he was advised by the nfl staff not to do that he was going to make the final decision. now we are hearing from the nfl commissioner roger goodell. he up homdholds the four-game
11:41 am
suspension for new england patriots star quarterback tom brady. keep it here on fox for continuing on this story. we'll check in now with shepherd smith from fox news desk. >> interestingly roger goodell, the nfl commissioner just said tom brady had his cell phone destroyed before he met with the investigator in the deflategate scandal. in addition tom brady had 10,000 cell phone texts over the four months since deflategate happened. 10,000 messages and his cell phone destroyed. roger goodell said that's the real deal. the new england patriots star was suspended in may. the patriots were fined a million dollars and toked a pair of draft picks. it all stays and brady isn't off the hook. back to you. >> we know you will cover that on your show 19 minutes from now. thank you. we'll continue covering that as well as this. the plan to close gitmo, dozens
11:42 am
of detainees set to release to other countries. where will the others go before they are set to be tried before military commissions and is it a good idea? could they come to prisons in the united states? secretary of state john kerry trying to sell the iran nuke deal to congress today calling a better deal a, quote, unicorn fantasy. the lawmakers don't see it that way with some having trouble with the current fwreemt. >> if this agreement goes through, iran gets a cash bo nanne sta-- bonanza and a lighted path to nuclear weapons. the lawmakers don't see it that
11:43 am
11:44 am
11:45 am
continuing coverage on big news from the nfl. commissioner roger goodell is upholding the four-game suspension against new england qb tom brady, by many accounts the face of the nfl and one of the most quarterbacks out there.
11:46 am
it's a stunning development. what's coming with the news is that roger goodell is telling the press that tom brady had his cell phone destroyed before he met with investigators. do you know anything more about it? >> reporter: we don't except we know there were thousands of text messages that were made after the fact and that's what -- you go back and that's what ted wells said in all probability tom bray ti knew that the balls were deflated. that was the entire basis of that report. you also have to remember when they point to tom brady as being complicit in this scandal you are talking about one of the most popular players in football and the new england patriots also lost a million in fines as well as the first round draft pick. you have to remember the nfl players association said they threatened if commissioner goodell didn't drop this suspension they wanted it two
11:47 am
games. they were willing to say tom brady should sit out the first two games of the season. but if he didn't lower it from four to two games they were threatening legal action to do this in court. clearly it's not going to happen this year. they go to court now and there is no chance the decision would be able to be rendered before the opening game in early september. the patriots play pittsburgh buffalo, jacksonville and dallas in their endeavor here to repeat as super bowl champions and now roger goodell has said tom brady will miss all four of the games. they lose a first round draft pick. they lose there's 1 million. we have heard not a single word now from the nfl players association though it is early on any reports they may challenge this in a court of law. >> yeah. >> prior to the opening kick
11:48 am
off. >> they challenged it and brady go to federal court. here's more about the destroying of the phone. on or before march #, the day he was to meet with the independent fwrart you are talking about ted wells and his colleagues brady directed the cell phone he used for the prior four months be destroyed. he did so though he was aware they had requested access to text messages and other electronic information that was stored on the phone. this is a report of course coming from the nfl commissioner's office. >> right. >> as you say he exchanged nearly 10,000 text messages. obviously when somebody destroyed a cell phone and they have been asked to keep it as evidence that has a guilty look to it. >> again we are hearing one side of the story, commissioner goodell's side of the story. we have not yet heard from tom brady and his lawyers about
11:49 am
whether or not that cell phone was destroyed. they may have a different take on exactly what happened here. commissioner fwoo dell this is not a legale ruling. this is commissioner's ruling saying the four-game suspension will be upheld. it has nothing to do with the legality of whether or not the phone was destroyed. this is in defense to tom bray ti. you know at some point today he and his people will come out with different statements here. we haven't heard from the owner of the new england patriots. remember he decided not to fight this. he didn't want to go through it. tom bray ti decided on his own and with his advisers to go to the commissioner and fight it himself. so nfl commissioner roger goodell upholding the four-dame suspension against tom brady. in the opinion informing tom brady it was denied.
11:50 am
