vice presidential candidate, tim kaine held a campaign rally in the battleground state of new hampshire. kaine slammed trump for not releasing his taxes, implying they could reveal things the republican candidate might not want voters to know about. (( if trump produces his tax returns, then it might show investments that are connected to people we'd have some questions about. it might also show us in right down to the centow by the tax plan he just put down on the table. this guy will make up anything and we are not gullible people, we're not going to let him pull the wool over their eyes. )) ((sharie johnson)) >> kaine also said donald trump would say anything, even if it's a lie, in reference to recent comments about president obama being the "founder of isis.///
8:16 pm
presidential debates donald trump said the country is in big trouble and -- quote -- "we don't win anymore." he was referring to trade, immigration and national security. a few of his critics are turning the republican nominee's signature line against him. and they're using the rising tally of u-s olympic wins to do it. here's just one example. ohio governor john kasich tweeted -- "someone said we don't win anymore. must not be watching americans swimming in rio tonight!" ((sharie johns) election headquarters for all the races and political news that matter to you... on air and online at las vegas now dot com./// ((sharie johnson)) prosecutors in colorado are upset with the judge in a college sex assault case. they say the sentence he handed down to a convicted rapist is too lenient. dan simon has details. 22-year-old austin wilkerson has been sentenced to 2 years in the boulder county jail. but there's a catch--- it's called work release an arraignment where defendants are able to go to
8:17 pm
too lenient of a sentence for a convicted rapist. (lisa saccomano/ prosecutor) "we were hoping to see a prison sentence in this case. obviously we feel that prison is appropriate for someone who commits a rape of this nature and particularly given the aggravated facts here." they were students at the university of colorado. it was march of 2014. a st patrick's day party. lots of drinking. wilkerson offered to look after the victim. instead prosecutors court documents say when confronted by investigators, wilkerson said he made "repeated advances on the victim, but that she rebuffed him each time." he later "admitted to friends" that she was "passed out--- and "let his hands wander." but in court--- wilkerson's story changed. claiming that it was consensual and that the victim was sober. (lisa saccomano/ prosecutor) "he definitely, in our opinion, as we argued to the court, throughout the process, has
8:18 pm
going to serve him." in the end, jurors found wilkerson guilty of sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact. changing his story yet again, he admitted to his crime and apologized at sentencing. judge patrick butler, who also sentenced wilkerson to 20 years probation. said he struggled with the decision . "mr. wilkerson deserves to be punished, but i think we all need to find out whether he truly can or cannot be rehabilitated." the outcome immediately drawing comparisons to t brock turner, who received 6 months in jail for raping a woman behind a dumpster. victims advocates say the legal system is failing to recognize the seriousness of rape on college campuses with the colorado case, being the latest example. (janine d'anniballe/moving to end sexual assault) "in this case, we have kind of come to accept that light sentences in these kinds of crimes are the norm." --tag--- prosecutors requested a sentence of four to 20 years in state prison... wilkerson's attorney told the local newspaper that
8:19 pm
that the judge based his decision in part on a recommendation from the probation department --- which called for no prison time. ((sharie johnson)) a north las vegas company is shooting for the stars. in tonight's "street talk" with the i-team's george knapp... how many finalists does the local company have to compete with... to score a major contract with nasa. you're watching the valley's news leader...with sharie johnson, katie boer & jon tritsch.

8:22 pm
((sharie johnson)) nasa has just announced plans for eventual missions to the moon and mars, but for humans to survive long term missions in space, they will need safe and secure habitats. a local company is among the six finalists to design the prototype for future space colonies. the i-team's george knapp has that and more in tonight's
8:23 pm
((george knapp)) america's ambitious lunar missions are a distant memory. the space shuttle era has likewise ended. but it looks like nasa is starting to think big again. this week, the space agency announced the next step in what it hopes will be a human presence on mars. six companies were chosen to develop prototypes for long range missions in space. more specifically, how to design habitats that will allow humans to live in space for extended periods. giants lockheed and boeing...but also named-- bigelow aerospace--whose plant in north las vegas built an expandable spacecraft that is currently attached to the i.s.s. as part of a two year mission. nasa will dole out 65 million dollars so the 6 companies can come up with the best, safest habitats that will first be used on or around the moon in the 2020's before the next big step to the red planet. the bigelow team has 24 months to come
8:24 pm
singing)) ((george knapp)) next week will mark the 39th year since the king of rock and roll died. elvis presley's immense influence is still felt here in las vegas, and the cause of his death is still debated. drug use certainly played a part in his demise at age 42 but now, a new analysis of the medical evidence suggests the king had deeper, underlying health issues related to a traumatic head injury. our website so fans can read it for themselves. a trial date has been set for las vegas sports gambler bill walters, accused of conspiring with others in a multi-million dollar insider trading scheme. when the indictment was announced a few months ago, the unofficial consensus in town was that walters' goose was cooked and maybe he should cut a plea deal.
8:25 pm
team is not only ready to go, but wishes the trial could start sooner than next march. they should sell tickets to that one. and finally, are you following the saga of the monkey that was smuggled aboard a las vegas bound airliner? turns out, this was no ordinary stowaway primate. its owner claims, it's a service monkey. highly -trained, whose job is to provide emotional support. i know what you're thinking because i'm asking the same question. who knew there were service is bart simpson, whose animated tv series is the wellspring from which all human wisdom flows. "how many monkey butlers will there be?" "one at first, but he'll train others." ((george knapp)) now that monkey butlers are real, there's only one other question to ask...where can i get one?i' i'm george knapp. ((sharie johnson)) >> we've posted links on las vegas now- dot- com so you can read more about nasa's plans, as well as the new medical report

8:32 pm
--and it's the number one attraction for those visiting for the olympic games in rio de janeiro. but as jamie yuccas shows us-- even this new wonder is prone to mother nature's wrath. (pkg) (nats of crowd) the picturesque statue of christ the redeemer sits atop rio's corcovado mountain and is considered the largest art deco style sculpture in the world. (sot) wherever you are you, you can't ever forget about the christ the redeemer every year nearly two million people get up close and take pictures from every angle. it's brazil's national icon and protecting it can be a challenge. (jamie yuccas bridge) the statue sits 2000 feet up and because it's in between the atlantic ocean and mountains, it's a prime target for lightning. workers say it is hit about 6 times a year. the catholic church now works with a weather monitoring center so the busy area can be evacuated during a storm.
8:33 pm
don't hit the same place twice, the finger of the right hand of the christ the redeemer has already been hit more than ten times. cristina ventura is an architect, she says it's her privilege to literally care for "christ." ventura says copper lightning rods have been placed on the statue to send lightning to the ground. (sot) they are in the tip of the finger, run over the shoulders, there is a crown on the top of the head - this is all the system of prevention of lightning 2013 and 2014 did major damage to the statue - breaking off part of the middle finger and thumb. repairing the statue is quite an undertaking. architects must go through a rigorous approval process because the stone used in the original is now hard to find and can sometimes be the wrong color. nats picture taking but it's worth it to keep the statue looking like a masterpiece for generations to come. jamie yuccas cbs news rio de janeiro.
