accepted responsibility for what he did wrong. now, fine has also been permanently disbarred. he will have to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years and is facing civil lawsuits from the women. now, there are so many unanswered questions about hypnosis and it's particularly hard to study what you can make people do against their will because the studies themselves may be unethical. george. >> well, that makes sense. okay, mara, thanks very much. let's try to answer some of the questions with our chief legal analyst, dan abrams. what a creepy case. >> wow, i mean really unbelievable. all right, first of all, you've got these women, you've got to women. they are going to a divorce attorney. this is at the lowest point in their lives. they're in the middle of a fight or about to have an enormous -- >> custody. >> exactly. custody, the most important issues, and this guy is taking advantage of that. which is, you know, which is in and of itself a problem and also terrible for lawyer, by the way, because this is supposed to be the most trusted relationship is between an attorney and a client, but if this case had gone to trial, it would have put hypnosis on trial.
7:35 am
about. if it had been, you would have had experts on both sides saying it is real and does work and the others saying, no way. >> i think the defense would have to have been you can't force someone to do something against their will, and yet increasingly hypnosis is being taken seriously by the scientific community and heard in that sound bite in the piece there it does sound like you can get people to do something -- >> you can change their will is the point. >> you can change their will and as a result, it would have been fascinating to hear this fight over hypnosis, but now that he has pled guilty, that's not going to happen, and facing 12 years behind bars. >> very good police work here. >> oh, yeah, absolutely, the fact that they were able to -- she has the wherewithal to take it to the police and put this undercover video on her and have the evidence where i think this is what forced them to plead. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> thank you both. now to our investigation into new home problems following reports of buyers spending hundreds of thousands of dollars

7:38 am
>> i think the quality of housing being built is as good as it's ever been, better. >> better than ever? >> yes, sir. >> are they shoddy? >> i say no. >> reporter: again and again it was only after the builders knew abc news or one of our stations was on the case that repair crews finally showed up. the bulldozer to redo the draining system at simone angle's home in alabama didn't show up until after abc news started to ask questions. >> it's only because abc news is here or they would not have fixed it. >> reporter: in indiana, it was only after wrtv got involved that the builder sent an execute tough it check out roofing and drainage issues. >> this is how we knew it was leaking. >> reporter: outside houston, the builder d.r. horton offered to buy this house back after our station ktrk began to investigate a homeowner's complaints of defects and problems. >> they weren't even moving until you got involved. >> reporter: these are not
