a new hampshire prep school graduate was sentenced today to a year in jail for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl, allegedly part of a tradition which upper classman competed for the most sexual conquests. he could have gotten 11 years, and anna werner is at the courthouse. >> reporter: as he waited for the judge to render his decision, owen labrie made the sign of the cross and looked to the heavens. but his prayers for a lighter sentence of probation were not answered. judge larry smuckler gave him a term of one year in jail and told labrie bluntly that he did
3:20 am
not believe the sex with the then 15-year-old girl was consensual. >> a child such as the victim, is not -- [ inaudible ] >> reporter: labrie was found guilty of having sex with the young girl in may of 2014. he claimed it was consensual. he contacted her as part of a ritual called the senior salute, where young men about to graduate try to meet up with younger females, sometimes for sex. but the victim, whom we are not identifying, said otherwise. >> i was raped. i was violated in so many ways. >> reporter: today, she told the court in a videotaped statement her life has changed forever. >> now, it's terrible to say i know why people don't come forward.
3:21 am
and it kills me to say that. >> reporter: labrie will also have to register as a sex offender for life. his attorney, jay carney. >> this is a punishment that he will have to endure for the rest of his life. >> reporter: labrie remains out on bail while his case is on appeal. assuming he does go to jail, scott, his year sentence could be reduced to eight months for good behavior followed by probation. >> anna werner, thanks. china takes a step to get younger. that's next.

the world's most populated country is trying to start a baby boom. seth doane now on why china is ending its one child per family policy. >> reporter: when we met last year, she told us she worried
3:23 am
about her son michael being an only child. >> feels lonely. >> reporter: today's announcement means couples can now have two children, reversing a three-decade old policy designed to limit a booming population. promoted via propaganda posters, the communist government claimed its one child policy prevented 400 million births and lifted many out of poverty. but the policy was unpopular, and enforcement could be draconian, including forced abortions. with only one child, many couples chose to abort female fetuses. today, there are 33 million more men than women. china finally changed its policy as it faces a shortage of workers in an aging population. but we found even with the rule change, the dream of a second child is not universal. have you always wanted to have a second child as much as her?
3:24 am
i'm not wedded to the idea her husband told us, because it brings so much financial pressure. the cost of supporting and educating one child could still trump having a second. seth doane, cbs news, taipei. >> by the way, china is about the same size as the continental u.s., but it has 1 billion more people. monster wave season started this week in portugal, and the best surfers in the world are hitching a ride. they're hoping for 100 footers. monsters of another kind make this is the scariest time of the year. but at this house, everyone is in good spirits. that story is next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

3:28 am

3:29 am
ready to give up the ghost any time soon. mireya villarreal, cbs news, los angeles. >> and that's the overnight news for this friday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us later. for the morning news and cbs this morning. from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley.
3:30 am
this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. there is fresh outrage directed at former subway restaurant spokesman jared fogle. he made millions as the face of the fast food change, but prosecutors obtained audio recordings of him chatting with a woman in florida chatting about his sexual encounters with women. >> reporter: fogle pleaded guilty to child pornography in august and agreed to pay $1.4 million in restitution. these recordings formed part of the evidence selected by investigators but they're only surfacing now. viewers may find the content disturbing. in the audio recordings being
3:31 am
heard publicly for the first time, jared fogle discusses his sexual interest in children. >> i like them at all ages, you know is >> what makes it different from one age to another? >> it just depends. >> reporter: the woman talking with fogle is a former radio host who became suspicious when she overheard him say he found middle schoolgirls attractive. >> how did you feel when he said those things? >> disgusting. i felt like i was so dirty. my soul was dirty.
3:32 am
>> before y >> he talks about how to groom a family. he talks about how to groom the victim. he talks about all the things he does, the tricks of his trade. he just basically gives you the playbook of an evil monster. >> hi, i'm jared the subway guy. >> reporter: he became a household name as a pitchman for subway. in august, fogle plead eed guil to one count of distributing and receiving child pornography and crossing state lines to engage in sex with minors. subway cut ties following his arrest. in september, the chain said herman wallren made a complaint about fogle in 2011 but it was mishandled. after amassing five years worth of recordings, she reached her breaking point.
3:33 am
>> she had to leave her kids, her family, go off somewhere and do this, come back, terribly upset for hours afterwards. and it took a lot of time away from her family. and changed who she was. that was a very painful thing for her. >> reporter: dr. phil is devoting two episodes to the recordings. one airing today and another on friday. nothi fogle is facing 5 to 12 years in prison. subway told cbs this morning that they have not heard the tapes. the company said they felt duped and betrayed by fogle and their sympathies go out the victims.
3:34 am
the society wants women to start screening later. three doctors wrote an op-ed in "the new york times" blasting the changes. michelle miller has the latest on the mammogram debates. >> reporter: the american cancer society says it came up with the recommendations after reviewing the best medical evidence available and weighing the benefits and harms of ma'mmogram mammograms. but with 200,000 cases of best cancer expected this year, early detection is key. >> if your number one goal is reducing deaths, mammograms starting at age 40 makes sense. >> reporter: these doctors all say they can't back the american cancer society's latest screening guidelines. what don't you agree with? >> the problem with these guidelines is that they're
3:35 am
confusing to the very women that should benefit from mammograms. >> reporter: they publicly aired their concerns in "the new york times" saying we no longer wish to be involved with the cancer society. the new recommendation suggests women with an average risk start yearly mammograms at age 45 instead of 40. at 55, they can switch to every two years. but they add women can start screening at age 40 if they wish. >> our goal is to empower people to make that decision. as a woman ages, the breast tissue tends to get less dense and makes reading easier. >> i've had the privilege of finding early cancers by screening women in their 40s and these guidelines are a setback to protecting the health of these women. >> reporter: critics worry it
3:36 am
could lead insurance companies to to limit screenings. >> will insurance companies jump on these guidelines and say sorry, no reimbursement. >> the american cancer society continues to be one of the strongest voices for continuing insurance for women age 40 and older. >> reporter: why push it back from 45 to 40 if you left the door open for it to be insured? >> at 45, there is no question how common breast cancer is, the ability of mammograms to save lives. >> reporter: in the hundreds of responses the op-ed received online, there was strong reaction on both sides. one reader wrote, what if the one saved woman is you. eight years ago it was me. or your sister or your daughter? still willing to play the odds? another said, personal experiences of the few should not drive medical policies for the majority. >> we desperately need resources for better technologies.
3:37 am
>> reporter: dr. david aga said the focus should not be on when to get a mammogram but how to better detect breast cancer. >> we want to be told what to do, but there isn't enough data to tell every woman in the country what to do between the ages of 40 and 45. so that decision is between the woman, her family and doctor to make the right decision for them. >> reporter: adding to all the confusion, yet another new study is raising questions about the value of mammograms. the report in "the new england journal of medicine" found despite women getting mammograms for decades, the testing hasn't cut the rate of detecting breast cancer. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

round three of the republican presidential debates is in the book. the consensus is, florida senator marco rubio came out on top. rubio sat down for a chat with charlie, gale and norah. but first, major garrett has a look at the gop political slugfest. >> reporter: the rnc chairman said cnbc ought to be ashame. more on that a minute. the debate did tackle big issues. entitlement spending, tax reform and the national debt. but overall the old saying applies. there was more heat than light.
3:41 am
it was hard to focus through the noise. but some moments in this debate broke through. >> senator, you're not interested in an answer. [ overlapping speakers ] >> reporter: like this exchange between jeb bush and marco rubio over votes that rubio has missed while campaigning. >> literally the senate, what is it like a french workweek, you get three days where you have to show up? you can campaign. or just resign and let someone else take the job. >> reporter: rubio implied bush was a hypocrite. >> the only reason you're doing it now is because we're running for the same position and someone convinced you attacking me to help you. >> reporter: ben carson took fire from john kasich. >> you don't make promises like this. why not give a chicken in every pot. >> he was such a nice guy and said i'm never going to attack. then his poll numbers tanked, that's why he's on the end.
3:42 am
[ applause ] >> reporter: carly fiorina had to defend her tumultuous tenure that included tens of thousands of layoffs. >> yes, i was fired over a disagreement in the board room. >> this is not a cage match. and if you look at the questions, donald trump, are you a comic book villain? ben carson, can you do math? john kasich, will you insult two people over here? the questions that are being asked shouldn't be trying to get people to tear into each other. >> reporter: and when the issue of government regulation of fantasy football surfaced, new jersey chris christie called time-out. >> we have $19 trillion in debt. we have people out of work. we have isis and al qaeda attacking us. and we're talking about fantasy football? [ applause ] >> reporter: after the debate, carson joined republicans in calling the media biased. >> in terms of the kinds of softball questions that the democrats get, and the kind of
3:43 am
tough questions that republicans get, i don't mind tough questions. but it just shows that there's a big difference. >> reporter: the post debate consensus, marco rubio and ted cruz did well and jeb bush struggled. donald trump told us he was certain he won. and cnbc released a statement saying people that want to be president of the united states should be able to answer tough questions. >> thanks, major. florida senator marco rubio is with us from colorado. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you think you achieved last night? some are saying this may have been a moment for you. >> well, you covered this long enough to know. it's one debate of many. we have another one in 12 or 14 days. so we're looking forward to that. every one of these is an opportunity to introduce ourselves. >> senator, were you surprised that jeb bush attacked your attendance record? one of your local newspapers is
3:44 am
also raising it as an issue. is it a fair question? >> look, my campaign is not about attacking anybody else. my campaign is about who i am and what's important for our country and the future of america that's what i am going to continue to focus on and won't change my feelings. i'm not running against them, i'm running for president. >> did you make that attack personal against jeb bush? he was once your mentor. >> again, i have great regard for him. i said that last night on the debate stage. every candidate should run on who they are and what they'll do if they become president and let the republican voters decide who the nominees should be. if there are policy differences, we should discuss those differences. i've never personally attacked anybody in this race and i'm not going to start now. >> well, you called hillary clinton a liar, senator. you called hillary clinton a liar. >> well, no, i said hillary clinton lied about benghazi, there's no doubt about that, charlie.
3:45 am
there are e-mails which she was talking about her family telling them there was an attack on that consulate due to a terrorist attack by al qaeda elements and going around the country talking to the families of the victims and to the american people and saying no, no, this is because of some video that someone produced. >> senator, you know the cia was changing its own assessment of what happened there during that time zone. >> that's not accurate. it was clear from the very early moments after that attack that it was not a spontaneous uprising. it was a planned attack, well orchestrated by people that brought arments to that attack that you would never see as part of a spontaneous uprising. what was clear is from the early moments oh of that attack, she knew that it was a terrorist attack, as she shared by e-mail with various people. yet she continued to perpetuate the lie -- >> if you're calling her a liar, why do you think she did that? what was her motive? >> well, that's very clear why, pause they were in the middle of a 2012 re-election which
3:46 am
president obama made the claim al qaeda was being defeated -- >> you're saying hillary clinton lied because she wanted to help barack obama in his re-election campaign? that's a serious charge. >> yes. well, it's the truth. that's not only why she did it, that's why everyone in the administration did it. the narrative of their campaign at the time, charlie, was that al qaeda was on the run and had been defeated. that was the narrative. this countered that narrative. that's why they didn't tell the truth about what happened. and the families of those victims deserve better. the american people deserve better. >> the cia was sending different information as they assessed it and providing different information to the leaders of our government, that was part of the reason -- >> without violating any -- >> david petraeus -- >> i don't want to violate anything confidential, but i'll tell you this. it was clear from the earliest moments after that attack that everyone on the ground and everyone closest to that attack knew almost instantly that this
3:47 am
was an organized effort, not part of a spontaneous uprising. and there was never, ever any evidence that it had anything to do with a video produced by some guy out in california. for them to further that narrative and continue to do so well after it was clear that wasn't the case was unacceptable. the american people deserve better, and the families of those victims of benghazi deserve better. >> at one point, senator, it appeared that the candidates somed to be debating the moderators more than'm other. jeb bush this morning said he didn't think it was a fair debate. what is your assessment of the debate last night? >> i was disappointed, because i thought krcnbc is a station whe they go into conversations about economics and i thought we were going to talk about how to reduce the debt, what about this trade deal we have. these are major economic issues. instead of taking up those questions and pressing the candidates on specifics, we had some of the other questions you
3:48 am
had been asked. i thought it was a wasted opportunity and that's what made it unfair, not just to the candidates but the american people. these are issues i was ready to talk about. this is why i'm running for president on these issues i take very seriously. i know the other candidates do too. and we wasted an opportunity last night to do that, because you have to respond to questions such as some of those posed last night about ben carson and some website and whether donald trump has moral authority. wasted opportunity and what i thought was the perfect forum to go into detail about specific and pressing economic policies. up next, the democrats. cbs will be hosting the ah! come on! let's hide in the attic. no. in the basement. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie,
3:49 am
you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. head for the cemetery!
