why should over two hundred years of citi® history matter to you? well, because it tells us something powerful about ogress. that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward. as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi® financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, for cash, anytime.
ve supported dreams like these, and the people and companies behind them. so why should that matter to you? because, today, we are still helping progress makers turn their ideas into reality. and the next great idea could be yours. ahh, yes, summer days.h, we're enjoying a whole lot of summer days right now.yierays at least the last couple.ple. 7:40 right now.. 68 degrees.re there's the beach, ocean city.en hopefully you're headed there te this weekend. w >> wouldn't that be niceou especially on a day like that.lk not cloud in the sky. looks pretty.. >> perfect beach day. >> virginia governor terry mccauliffe says he's confidentst his order to restore votinges vt rights to felons who completed l their sentence will with hold al lawsuit against it

us this morning. trnin >> good morning.>> good m thank you for having me. >> my first question is, whatha are the obstacles and are difficulty in trying a case of e this magnitude with so many counts?coun >> well, this is as you can telt from the number of counts, thist case is just a devastating case. the good news about it is thatti we believe the evidence is very strong because of the video images there were two phones phs primarily that we were able to recover evidence from that captured nearly a 100 videos ano we believe that that evidence is going to be very strong evidencc and it will allow us to minimizn the impact on these childrense e we're hoping.op that is our goal is to minimizen the impact on the children, and hopefully prevent them from even having to come into theom courtroom. it may be the case that we havev to do that but certainly is our hope to not further traumatizeem these children who havee exp
trauma if these case.as. >> now, you know the defense isn going to say that mr. car awayy has limited hem capacity. but the indictment shows thatt this is someone who knew what he was doing and it was very calculated and pressured these young kids into do it can someone with a limited mentaltal capacity be able to do all of that?th >> we believe that unfortunately absolutely. it is possible.e. we have video images of course with mr. carraway the evidencehe will show he engaged in sex acta with these children directed the children to engage in sex actsea with each other.ther. it will of course be oure position that his mentalhi m capacity did not impact his imp ability to participate in thesee acts which were unlawful.nlawl they are illegal.ey a i they are disgusting. and so we are convinced that the evidence will show that he wasth able of course to participate.pa >> how do you go about preparing these chil
their families for a trial like this which obviously would belyd lengthy?? >> well, you know, we started the process.ss. started our investigation.invesi we've been interviewing victims, but i have to tell you, it isoui not easy.noeasy this is the worst case scenarioo for to us involve minor children.ch i can tell you that part of whyo our goal is to craft the caset c where we will hopefully not havy to bring the children into theno courtroom is because it is veryv devastating.statg we have one case i can think ofi in particular where the minor child had to be interviewed asea that child sat under thehe conference table because it wasi just difficult for the child tod talk to the prosecutor in theton seat so the child had toad literally sit under the table tb be interviewed because this isas so devastating and so we are hoping not to have to repeat that to cart children into c courtrooms and have them talk to adults.ul that is our goal and hopefully f we'll be able to accomplishplis that. >> now, i know that mr. carrawaa isf
live sentences here. there is a second criminal crina investigation going on, right? and that has to do with who knew? who else new this was going on and failed to reportepr it? unfortunately, the sentences even if those peoplee are found guilty, lack considerably. >> exactly. you know what the truth of it wi is, we believe that our investigation will primarily and our prosecution will primarily i focus on mr. carraway. we're going to have to do sometd more work in terms of strengthening the laws will bewi in annapolis again in january. a but the truth is that the lawsas relating to other people who maw have known, who should have protected these children justldn aren't as strong as the caseses that we have againstgainst mr. carraway so we'll focusus primarily on mr. carraway.arwa we do have another investigatioi that's going but our expectation is we will focus on efforts onts bringing to justice mr. carraway who committed very heinous acts
this community.is that will be our primary focus as well ensuring this never happens again.ppens a working with the school systemhe to educate individuals who havev contact with children. the family in this case who brought this case to our o attention if a wonderful job ini checking their child'sld's electronic device and we w encourage other parents to doott that. but our goal will to bringring mr. car apps did you way tou w justice torque minimize therquem impact on these children and too ensure this doesn't happens doen again. >> when can we expect the trial to beginn ? >> well, the first date we have in this case is july 18th. we believe that will be a status hearing.hein we do not yet is trial date inat this case. >> angela alsobrooks statess attorney for priefs county.sount thank you very much.th tepreciate your time thisia morning. >> thank you for having me. >> you're welcome. y >> let's head over to tucker ane talk little weather.ther. >> quick weather update. upd things looking great today.ooret nice morning for us.ni mor we're featuring sunshine and itd will be warm this afternoon.noo. mid 80s but without that humidity in place this stills s feels
