8:18 am
>> what happened. california law changed and up until 10 years ago. you had to file a case within a serve period of time. they were afraid to do it. and when they became adults a lot of these guys got away with it and it is outrageous. >> right now in penn state. and the jury with the jerry sandusky case. now his step sop is coming out saying he was molested as well as the adopted son. >> he came out with the allegation after the case went to the jury. the good news is this. if some chance he gets away with it. it is pretty thin after the witnesses come forward. prosecutors could commit him with the new trial. >> is it just for justice. as far as time and money, sandusky would be going away for life. >> or is it about justice. >> i prosecuted child molestation cases. some stick with you when you meet the victims. he needs to be hunt haded down and brought to justice.
8:19 am

8:21 am
