8:40 am
this morning we wanna share with you a stunning local case that will make you scratch your head -- and wonder if what you just..was real.even more, it also illuminates what prosecutors say is real a problem. eyewitness accounts. they say they are so unreliable they may just be the worst kind of evidence. this is the bank robber. in 2010 he held up a tr-state bank -- and the surveillance video hit probably every newscast in cincinnati that day. "and we put out a crimestoppers tip and we got about 5 or 6, 7 phone calls, 'i know that guy', 'he lives on this street', 'he lives in this particular house'.
8:41 am
prosecutor, joe deters, says people were convinced they knew this guy. they pointed at the same guy, the same house... they were sure it was this man . . "and when detectives went to that particular house, knocked on the door, and his mom answered it, and she said, 'i know why you're here. i just saw on television my son robbing a bank." bank."this is that woman's son. take a look. he looks incredibly like the guy in the surveillance video. police took the son, whose identity we were not given, into custody. then, they got a call from a woman who said *this was the *wrong guy... that it was *her boyfriend who robbed the bank...and *this is her boyfriend, conrad zkzierak . ."the accused was african american. the actual
8:42 am
as could be. he had bought a theatrical mask from beverly hills, which cost a few thousand dollars, and it's very life like, as you know, and he had it on. and it looks like the guy they called crimestoppers about."tanya: "i mean, his mom..."deters: "his mother said it."tanya: "he did it."deters: "he did it." it.""it looked just like her son." son."sunglasses covered zkzierak's blue eyes. gloves covered his hands. "that just tells you, don't believe what you see all the time because you could be dead wrong." wrong."joe deters says ever since he released from prison this man who was wrongly imprisoned in 1982 for rape based on one person's identification of him, he won't take one person's so- called 'word for it.' it.'"you can't rely solely on identification. you just can't do that. it's a recipe for some kind of disaster and i think a disaster is an innocent person in prison." prison."in fact he says eyewitness accounts are the worst kind of evidence. evidence."i would consider identification one piece of evidence that you can use. it should never be the only piece of evidence." evidence."
8:43 am
conrad zkzierak will be in prison for that robbery and others until 2035. ohio is gettimg some big help from home owners at risk of foreclosure. foreclosure.the u-s treasury department has announced that ohio will recieve $98 million to prevent "at-risk" home owners from losing thier homes. the money comes from the "hardest hit fund," it was set up at the height of the foreclosure crisis.since 2010, ohio has recieved $540 million from the fund which has helped more than 24 thousand ohioans. if it's up to matt bevin you won't ever have to pay tolls on the brent spense bridge. kentucky's governor says he'll 'sign' a bill banning any tolls on bridge's replacement. the bill doesn't mention the project by name ... but instead would allow private money to pay for public projects.the bill states: that no tolls can be part of any agreement or project.. connecting kentucky with ohio without the approval of the
