>> looking for me? >> the men say jackson warned them they had to keep the abuse a secret. and allegedly pressured them to defend him in his sex abuse cases. jackson settled the 1993 lawsuit and was acquitted in a 2005 criminal trial. in court and in tv interviews, robinson repeatedly denied being molested by michael jackson. >> what's he like? >> he's a good guy. >> no nonsense? >> no. >> in 2015 after suffering several nervous break downs robinson decided to tell what he claims is the real story in a lawsuit against the jackson estate. savechuck followed him a year later. both cases were thrown out because of statute of limitations. the men are appealing. >> he started talking about how much he loves me, what this is is us, how we show our love for each other and other people are ignorant and stupid. they would never understand. >> the jackson family has denied it and denounced them as

included all of that stuff. >> but did you not think it was necessary to hear from members of his family or his lawyers to react specifically to wade and james? >> well, this isn't a film about michael jackson. it is a film about wade and james, two of the boys. to whom this dreadful thing happened long ago. it's a story of their coming to terms with that over two decades an the story of their families. as far as including other eye witnesses to that, there was no one else in the room, i don't believe, when wade was being molested by michael or when james was having sex with him. >> they both defended michael jackson in the past including in 1993 when he was accused of sexual abuse. robinson testified on his behalf at the trial in 2005. why have their s changed? >> people find it difficult to understand and what i found making this film found it

8:04 am
of reasons not to be transparent about what we do in government if we aren't prepared to prove our case beyond a reasonable doubt in court, then we have no business making allegations against american citizens. >> democratic lawmakers threaten to subpoena the report or mueller himself if all of it is not made public. the irs is out with new data on this year's tax filings. we are four weeks into tax season and the average refund so far is $2,640. that's down from more than $500 from this time last year. the irs has received fewer than 40 million individual filings so far, down nearly 5% from the same period in 2018. cbs news business analyst jill schlessinger is here with when you can expectrrefund. jill, good morning. you've already said you are not anticipating a refund but we know many americans are. how long can they expect to get one after they file? >> if you file electronically, it should be within 21 days. if you go with the paper filing,

we're talking about six weeks or so. and again, this is based on the information from the irs. no delays due to the government shutdown. there were some fears about that earlier. >> if there are any delays, what would be the reasons? >> the biggest one is people who claim the earned interest tax credit or the additional child tax credit, a lot of those people filed early hoping to get those credits. unfortunately, they are not issued until mid-february. the irs says tomorrow if you file those two kinds of credits, you should get your refund direct deposited. >> some people have gotten their tax cut because -- there are people who got tax cuts as a result of the president's tax plan. they may not get a tax refund but their net tax bill will have gone down. >> that's really important. when we look at the refund amount we just cited it's down by $500. now think about that. $500, but if you got a $10 a week pay increase throughout the year, you may not have noticed it. i get it. but that was part of your tax
8:06 am
refund. so it's important not to conflate a refund with a tax cut. >> a refund is essentially giving a free loan to the government and as a financial adviser, you tell people probably not to do that. >> not the best idea. >> for people who do get a refund, what do you recommend they do with the money? >> take a trip? >> stop it now. first -- >> buy some shoes? >> some necklaces? >> catch up on your bills, obviously. then, of course, pay down any outstanding credit card auto loan, debt. beef up that emergency reserve fund that's so important. and, look, if you have some extra money, maybe bump up that contribution to your retirecounn the previous year, use that. capture it. put it into your retirement account. by the way, putting money into a retirement account is a great way to reduce your taxes for next tax season. >> regardless of your age. even if you are a young person. put money in for retirement. >> just do it. >> all of that available in your

8:17 am
name. through this process i learned that it's not. >> reporter: so you thought thi everything? >> yeah. i think that's something that has to be more recognizable, that when we go, it is not necessarily a hilton or a marriott or a hyatt. it is somebody like in my case, you know, an owner/operator situation. >> reporter: many of these big brand hotels are franchises, meaning the owners and managers operate independently. >> the court ruled that the guest room key control, they did not have ultimate responsibility. >> reporter: her attorney says the management company and owner were ultimately responsible for giving christopher la point access to her room where he sexually assaulted her and raped
8:18 am
her in the middle of the night. >> reporter: that seems like a huge surprise to people, that a brand name is on a hotel and they wouldn't be responsible for everything. >> i think within the industry we learned that it is quite common. i have had other cases like this. things get made by different people. even though there is different names on them. you could be wearing a jacket by a name brand and made by china. so it works similarly in the hotel industry. >> reporter: even the hotels with the best names in terms of the brand may present a risk of harm to you. >> women's rights attorney has represented several hotel assault victims including kayla who was raped in her hotel room in 2019. >> my hotel room key was given to my attacker. >> reporter: he was given a key to her room without an id check at this embassy suits in south caroli
8:19 am
carolina. >> no one else is authorized to be in that room or to be given a key. >> reporter: the case settled out of court. >> can the hotel industry do better? >> all industry can do better when it comes to safety and security. >> steven says travelers should be proactive about their safety. >> when we get to the hotel front desk, don't provide your name outloud f. the front desk agent calls your room number outloud, you need to request a different room. when you sign off on the guest check, if you are billing to your room, hand that receipt with your information back to the server so that you know it's in the custody and control of the hotel and not some random person. >> reporter: do companies need to catch up when it comes to their security? >> yes. businesses need to recognize they're asking people to go out and do things on their behalf and they need to take an active role in teaching and training them about how to be safe and
8:20 am
secure when they travel. >> reporter: as for sherry, she now uses a portable door lock that helps her feel a little safer again while on the road. >> i have a lock that i found, and i use that everywhere i go. in fact, i carry two in case someone gets me. i always request no requesting doors, but i always carry two just in case i get that. >> reporter: and a variety of portable door locks are ease will available on line if you do a search or even a simple rubber doorstop. a few other things to keep many mind. when you are in elevator, don't push your floor number first. if someone gets out on your floor, let them go ahead of you. if you are concerned at all, go down to the front desk. and request one room key so you always know where it is. important to note that hilton was not involved in the lawsuit, but the company did tell us it maintains rigorous safety standards for hilton managed properties and expects the same
8:21 am
of its franchised hotels. >> there are a variety of door locks, different sizes, different types. you do have to remember, this means if there was an emergency, the hotel staff may not be able to get in to help you. but when you talk to people about their safety, that can make a difference. think, be smart and don't be afraid to speak up. you have to be assertive when it comes to your safety. >> good advice if they call out your hotel room number. >> ask them to change it based on it. >> thank you. you can see more of our interview with sherry, including her emotional account of how the attack changed her life. more on cbs this morning. we will be right back. has 8 designed benefits for healthy gums and strong teeth. complete protection from parodontax.
