7:02 am
from mike mcqueary as he saw and heard what went on in the shower room. he described it as perverse. he described questions about why he didn't go immediately to the police. we'll have the latest on this case straight ahead. also coming up a terrifying moment caught on dash-cam video. an suv flips over at the end of a police chase ejecting a one-year-old girl. she only suffered minor injuries. the parents in the car are facing charges. on a lighter note. a huge turnout for the queen and duke and duchess of cambridge as they kicked off the latest leg of the diamond jubilee tour and tell you what's next in a little while. let's begin this morning on a much more serious note. disturbing testimony at the trial of former football coach jerry sandusky. michael isikoff at the courthouse in bellefonte, pennsylvania, with more. michael, good morning.
7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, ann. one witness sobbed. the other was forceful and direct. the combination made it a tough day for jerry sandusky. jerry sandusky returns to court today, his lawyers hoping to recover from tuesday's powerful testimony from star witness mike mcqueary. the former penn state assistant coach was a graduate assistant in 2001 when he testified he walked into a school locker room and spotted sandusky in a shower, his arms wrapped around a young boy. mcqueary testified he was shocked and extremely flustered. after slamming his locker door, causing sandusky and the boy to separate, mcqueary said he quickly left. you don't expect to see anything like that ever, he told the jury. it was sexual. it was wrong. it was perverse. the next morning after speaking to his father, mcqueary testified he called joe paterno. but in court he was barred from describing what the late coach
7:04 am
said because it would be hearsay. sandusky lawyer tried to poke holes. you call your father? you don't call police? he asked. later he recounted the incident to then penn state president gary schultz who was in charge of the campus police. >> mike mcqueary came across as a very strong witness who was virtually unscathed. in fact, i would say entirely unscathed through the cross-examination. >> reporter: earlier the jury heard wrernlging testimony from an 18-year-old man known as victim one who said he met sandusky through second mile charity. he broke down and sobbed describing how sandusky's overtures, starting with backrubs went to blowing on the stomach kisses on the lips and oral sex, often in sandusky's bedroom. i was confused. i didn't know what to do, the witness testified. at times he tried to hide from sandusky in the basement, underneath pool tables and in closets. sandusky pled not guilty.
7:05 am
the lead lawyer, amendola said victim one told conflicting stories at different times. i don't remember dates of when i told anyone, the witness testified. all i know is it happened to me. i honestly don't even want to be here. >> i think this case will show the world how exceedingly difficult it is for victims of sexual abuse to report that heinous crime. you saw firsthand the pain that a victim of sexual abuse undergoes. >> reporter: now, despite that grueling testimony, sandusky seemed unfazed, smiling and laughing with supporters in the courtroom at the end of yesterday's session. meanwhile lawyers say both sandusky and even his wife dottie may take the stand in his defense. >> thank you. star jones is a former attorney and prosecutor. good morning. >> good morning. >> so far the defense appears 0 for 2. at some point are we looking at a no choice situation where they
7:06 am
are going to have to bring jerry sandusky to the stand because there are six more alleged victims yet to be called. >> we have heard probably the strongest victim at this point. you start with your best case. the defense, however, has such a mountain to climb here. they are going to have to devastate young people and their memories of one of the most horrific crimes you can imagine. as mike mcqueary testified yesterday, actions that were perverse in his own words. we find it difficult to even report the story because you cannot really lay out the allegations. so i find it difficult to figure out how the defense is going to counter it. >> being the only alleged eyewitness, he a big burden to carry. he to back up the testimony of these alleged victims who are talking about things that happened years ago. they were young people. did he do enough? >> i don't think i have ever recalled a case where there was an adult eyewitness to a child
7:07 am
being actually sexually assaulted. so the prosecution has, sadly to say, a gift in mike mcqueary. if the jury believes him, they have what allen dershowitz likes to call a triangle prosecution. have you a victim, you have eyewitnesss and you have corroboration. that's a devastating foundation for prosecution. >> from the courtroom he was composed, seemed credible. his credibility has been questioned because he flipped on when he saw the alleged inappropriate behavior, saying first 2002 and then 2001. how serious is this for the prosecution? >> in some cases time and inconsistencies with the time is a problem. in this particular case the allegations are so horrific that i think the jury might forgive him with being off a year, if you will. because the facts of what he said he saw are not the kind of
7:08 am
facts you would forget. you might forget the date but you wouldn't forget you what saw. >> one of the most sobering things we heard yesterday was from the testimony of victim one in which he says he went to his high school counselor and reported sandusky had done inappropriate behavior. he said it was told -- he was told by those he reported to that sandusky has a heart of gold and he wouldn't do something like that. >> this is by far the worst fear of any child that reports adult sexual assault. i've had these kinds of cases where the kids, the only thing that matters to them is will the adult they report to believe them. in this situation the person who is supposed to be there, the counselor supposed to be there to have that kid's back didn't, if you believe the testimony. the prosecution is smart in takes these young now men back to those very painful times as children. it's devastating for their own
7:09 am
psyche, but it builds a wonderful case for the prosecution. >> to be continued, star jones, thank you for your valuable perspective. it is now 7:08. now here is matt. >> thank you very much. the wife of george zimmerman, the man who is charged with fatally shooting teenager trayvon martin is out of jail this morning. this after she was arrested and charged with personally for allegedly lying at her husband's bond hearing. nbc's kerry sanders is in sanford, florida. kerry, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. she wi shellie zimmerman was booked into and release freddie jail in a few minutes. the wife of george zimmerman had been able to cloak her identity with the blessing of the judge and law enforcement lost the privacy she had so cautiously protected. shellie zimmerman was booked into the very same jail where her husband is locked up. she's charged with one count of
7:10 am
perjury. prosecutors claim she lied to get her husband released on $150,000 bond. his freedom was revoked earlier this month when it was reveiled he failed to disclose he had more than $135,000 cash in a defense fund. his 25-year-old wife was released tuesday after posting $1,000 bond after spending just 38 minutes in jail. her problems with prosecutors began, they say, when she testified by phone at her husband's bond hearing in april. her testimony included repeated denials that she knew anything about a growing paypal account. >> do you have any estimate as to how much money has already been obtained? >> i do not. >> reporter: but prosecutors a little in jailhouse recorded phone calls between shellie and george zimmerman the couple conspired to hide money by allegedly transferring tens of thousands of dollars to her personal credit union account.
7:11 am
in the probable cause affidavit, prosecutors wrote, "the record show that shellie zimmerman transferred more than $74,000 from george zimmerman's account to her account. >> the perjury charge against shellie zimmerman is a tale of transcripts. the one in court and the jailhouse conversations which cannot be reconciled. normally perjury is tough to prove. this doesn't look difficult in this case. >> reporter: shellie zimmerman was unavailable for comment. sources say she has yet to hire a lawyer. >> is he worried about his wife? >> serum after being charged with a crime he's worried. he's also worried she's out in the public eye and there's legitimate safety concerns for her. >> reporter: if shellie zimmerman is convicted of perjury, she could face up to five years in prison, and she would lose the ability to get a license from the state. she's currently studying to be a nurse, which, matt, requires a
7:12 am
license. >> kerry sanders in florida on this story for us. kerry, thanks very much. now let's get the rest of the morning's stories. natalie morales. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. a victory in the special election for gabrielle giffords seat. her handpicked successor democrat ron barbour -- barber last night. she resigned from congress back in january a year after she was shot. the suspect in a deadly shooting near auburn university has turned himself into police following a three-day manhunt. desmonte leonard charged with three counts of capital murder and accused of wounding three others in a fight at a party near the school's campus. he could make a court appearance as early as today. firefighters are battling destructive blazes burning out of control in colorado and new mexico.
7:13 am
nbc's miguel almaguer joins us from bellvue with the latest. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: natalie, a mixed bag here. some evacuees are told they can return back home while other residents are told be prepared to leave at a moment's notice. this is a wildfire in colorado and one in new mexico rages on. though choking billowing smoke can be seen for miles, the flames are difficult to reach. the air attack in colorado's high park, fire among the most effective weapons slowing a churning blaze feeding through forest land bone dry. still firefighters are making progress. >> we're far from the end but we're going the right direction. we continue to have faith and trust in these folks that are running the fire for us. >> reporter: the fire here has claimed one life, destroyed or damaged at least 100 structures and today threatens many more. some 600 firefighters are on the
7:14 am
ground, extra crews are en route, a grueling five-day fight on the frontline. >> they are incredibly brave. oh, my gosh. it's amazing what they do and how close they get to the fire. just love them. >> reporter: meantime across colorado's border in new mexico, a state of emergency has been declared in lincoln county. the little bear fire has devoured more than 200 homes, entire neighborhoods reduced to smoking rubble. the lightning sparked fire has blackened at least 36,000 acres, flames still threatening homes today. >> reporter: back here in colorado this 43,000 acre fire is roughly 10% contained. but like in new mexico all eyes will be on the forecast today. wind conditions should be relatively calm. natalie. >> we'll get that from al momentarily. miguel almaguer in colorado, thanks. the brooklyn monster turned

7:17 am
these low clouds ought to cool you down. as we head through this afternoon, temperatures are in the 90s and we have highs into the 80s and we have fog out there. pretty thick fog and you might have to use your windshield wipers for drizzle along the peninsula this morning. 83 in san jose, down to the 90s of yesterday. tomorrow, though, the warm-up begins. a warm-up that brings us into the upper 90s by saturday. hope you have a great day. >> want to make sure you get a cup, too. there you go. make sure our cameraman gets a cup. he's been out for a long time, too. ann, i've got one for you. >> thank you so much, al, that's nice of you. now we want to turn at new guidelines aimed at making football safer for hundreds of thousands of young athletes in the country. nbc's nancy snyderman is the chief medical editor for our company. >> in terms of football this is going to be a game changer. it has to be with pop warner
7:18 am
football, the oldest youth football organization. they are literally changing the rule book. they are addressing the kind of contact allowed in the game and particularly in practice. not only to avoid safe play but to avoid dangerous concussions. there are nearly 4 million sports related concussions in the united states this year and football counts for more than half of those. new research show more head injuries during practice than a game. that's why there's a concussion initiative. most pop warner kids practice nine hours a week. new guidelines will have only a third of that in head to head contact. no direct hits and contact in a three-foot zone. the group's executive director says safety comes first now but admits things weren't always that way. >> i think particularly with concussions so much of it was a lack of awareness. you got dinged, get back in the
7:19 am
game. >> for this family, pop warner is a big part of life. 8-year-old anthony plays football. sister mattie is a pop warner cheerleader, dad matt a coach and his wife roberta a spirit squad leader. they joined in part because of the safety philosophy. when in doubt, sit it out, and says the new regulations are even more reassuring. >> it's a sense of comfort knowing that he's not going to get hit all the time. >> he never got a scan? >> dr. julian bales say kids' brains are more susceptible. >> a second or third concussion, really can have detrimental effects and a degradation in their function. >> you weren't knocked out, were you? >> that's why doctors are keeping close eyes on kids like dominic holster, he's had three concussions and now wears a special helmet on the field and
7:20 am
gets regular checkups. more than 280,000 kids participate in pop warner nationwide. these regulations are going to impact a lot of players. the bottom line, ann, we have to protect their young brains because they are more vulnerable. >> very important story. it is now 7:20. once again, here is matt. >> thank you. with the busy summer travel season under way, there's some new questions about the safety of some rental cars. a mother from california is demanding that rental companies change their ways after her two daughters were killed in a car she says should never have been on the road. nbc's tom costello has more on this. tom, good morning. >> matt, good morning. enterprise car rental agreed it was negligent after admitting it had no policy for fixing cars in its fleet involved in a safety recall. now all rental car companies are under pressure to promise they won't rent or sell cars until they are fixed. it was on highway 101 outside of
7:21 am
bradley, california, an horrific crash after the 2004 pt cruiser two sisters were in caught fire as they were driving. rachel and jackie didn't know the car was the subject of a recall for a steering fluid leak that could lead to an engine fire. and enterprise car rental had rented the car without making the fix. >> it's ridiculous because it's simple to fix. this is not a fledgling industry that is on the border of collapse at any moment. >> reporter: enterprise admitted it was responsible and a jury awarded the family $15 million. now congress is considering a law that would make it illegal for rental car companies to rent or sell cars part of a safety recall before they are fixed. until that law is passed, callie and members of congress have asked all rental car companies to make a promise not to do so. >> no rental car company should allow an unsafe vehicle to ever
7:22 am
be rented or sold to a consumer without being fixed first to the manufacturer's specifications, which have been approved by nhtsa. >> a government study found enterprise repaired only 65% of vehicles in 90 days. budget, 353 that quickly. hertz was even worse with only 34% repaired in 90 days. now avis says we do not and will not rent a vehicle which is subject to a recall. enterprise and national says the same thing. as for dollar thrifty, it says, "we have never had a serious personal injury arise from a failure to timely address a safety recall." and it repairs all safety recalls from its fleet. customers should beware. >> what consumers going to a rental company will ask for a vehicle with an outstanding recall on it. they want a safe car. they don't want one that's waiting to break down on the
7:23 am
road. >> reporter: hertz has also made a pledge, hertz will not rent or sell a vehicle if it has been involved in a safety recall until that vehicle has been fixed. that from hertz. so as you make your summer travel plans, the best advice may be to know what your rental car company's policy is on repairing rentals involved in recalls. matt. >> that is good advice. tom costello in washington. tom, thank you very much. just ahead a husband charged with masterminding three failed murder attempts on his wife. now his former mistress who says she helped plan the hits is accused of plotting to have him killed. we'll have the latest but first this is "today" on nbc.

7:32 am
janet in bel-aibel-air, texas. >> this case has been full of twists and turns and now a bombshell. it is a rambling four-page jailhouse letter that could turn this case upside downcasting doubt on whether jack was the mastermind on his wife's life. when he reconciled with his wife after being accused of plotting three attempts on her life. she survived the attacks in 2010 but the last one, a gunshot to her abdomen and fatal. he denied any involvement in trying to kill his wife, his mistress was the brains and bankroll. she pled guilty in capital murder in exchange for her testimony expected next month. now she's accused of planning a

7:34 am
the note is, in fact, hers. >> reporter: the fbi can't comment as the case is pending. statement from the district attorney's office who is prosecuting jeffrey stern. they have just been made aware of the allegations and investigating. adding she, michelle, knows better than anyone that entire scheme against yvonne was concocted by jeffrey stern. that letter was found last month, so far the district attorney here has yet to charge michelle gaisner with any crime for trying to put a hit out for jeffrey stern. stern goes on trial for the three attempts on his wife's life. they lived together here in this home behind me. she will be in support of him at trial. this is a strange case at best. >> sounds like a fun bunch. a toddler in lubbock, texas,

this won for best musical arrangement. why do you like this commercial. >> this is the lead in to the commercial. the fact it's more popular than the commercial itself that ran on the super bowl. it was meant to be the bridge between the most popular car commercial in a viral sense, the darth vader spot, and the new one which had the dog in it. they tried to bridge those things and capitalize on the "star wars" things. >> with all apologies to volkswagen, that drove me crazy. i don't know why. that's darth vader. the next one we'll see is for land rover, called liar, on for best copy righting. we cut it down for time. >> i'm a pathological liar. everything i've ever told you is a lie. >> what did you lie about. >> pretty much everything, it's pathological. >> so you're not from france.
7:45 am
>> yes, i'm not from there. >> you don't own the gallery where we met. >> i don't lone that one. >> you're not a doctor. >> what about us? did you lie when you say you love me? >> no, i'm only telling you this because i'm truly in love with you. >> you are? >> no. >> i don't know what to believe. >> edward. my real name is edward. jason. >> edward or jason. >> i think that's a funny commercial. the humor in that one works great. >> it does. the director david shane is great at that short of timing. the first half you see them interacting and has he a french accent. all of a sudden he jumps in the car and says i have to tell you something and it goes through that. >> the tag line, "you'll feel safe inside" works brilliantly. >> next one best performance and dialogue. new era, they make baseball caps. try and see if you can figure out that by watching the commercial. >> wow, for someone who just watched their team get totally
7:46 am
annihilated you seem calm. >> it's not whether you get knocked down, it's when you get back up. >> thanks, mom. >> alec baldwin said that. >> no. >> alec baldwin just said that a little while ago. >> see if your bowl game can get up after last night's melt down. >> let's see if you can get back up after this. >> are those tickets. >> i'm going to make everybody at fenway cry. >> no. no. please no. wow, they are flammable. no, they are still usable, the bar code. oh, my god. are you okay. >> call 912. 912. >> what is 912? >> keeps going on and on. they never mention baseball caps, by the way. you just see him wearing one. >> what's so great about it, this whole campaign has been going on since the beginning of 2010 and it really develops
7:47 am
these characters. it's the rivalry of baseball. of course he always wears a cap. that subtle reference. but it's all about the rivalry of sports. >> to the control room i'm going to skip ahead now to the big winner from last night. this was the best commercial. it also won in a bunch of other occasion. it's for chipotle restaurant chain. take a look. ♪ i was just guessing at numbers and figures the puzzle questions of science science and progress don't speak as loud as my heart ♪ ♪ nobody said it was easy >> this one is one that kind of tries to get you to connect to a simpler way of life. as the commercial goes on, the
7:48 am
images get more pleasing to the eye. a coldplay song sung by willie nelson. why did the voters like it so much. >> works on so many levels, mostly coldplay sung by willie nelson and coldplay's use of that. this broke on the grammys. they had this song available on itunes. all the proceeds went to the foundation to support sustainable farming. the story goes on to show the farmers, trucks, all that used the farm. just a charming, delightful story using animation, using willie nelson, obviously connecting with the farmer and his pedigree with them. so many wonderful messages in there. it says you can sell and have a social message. that's kind of what advertising is going towards now. >> matt miller. matt, thank you very much. you really liked the dogs barking. >> i kind of like it. >> up next, a new celebration of the queen's diamond jubilee.

8:46 am
from a few dollars to $20. the point is you need to really check with your councillor if you need one. >> get the word out. you like the newspaper partly for that. >> you definitely want to place an ad the week before, the friday before and be specific. if you have john deere farming equipment, make sure you say that. if you have pottery barn, those things are big attracters to get people into your tag sale. >> you want to go to the web. >> you want to use craig list, social network, sites like garage sale, make sure your friends spread the word. another thing towns are doing, they are also specifying where you can put signs. a lot of them are making you use their signs. like in moore, oklahoma, you need to buy the signs from the town. they are $2 apiece. can you make your own signs, the day, the time. use arrows. this is a company where you can order them online. >> i like it, your treasure

awaits. >> let's talk about what things sell and what things tend not to sell. >> kids games, anything kid related does very well. toys. sporting equipment does really well. small electronics, even big electronics do really well. what doesn't sell well, clothing and stuffed animals. think about it. if you have clothing, from a consignment shop. who wants a raty old stuffed animal. >> what about placement of things? if you go into a store, they place things in certain places on purpose to get you to spend more money? does placement matter in a garage sale. >> bundling books together, dvds, you're going to do better for money when you do that. in terms of making things look good, take for example this table. we are selling all these things but there's no reason you can't merchandise it so it resembles the way people use it. >> someone might come and say i like the way this entire table
8:48 am
looks. we'll take the whole thing. >> absolutely. in terms of pricing, pricing should be 10 to 30% of retail. one thing to keep in mind, you can always price down but you can't price up. >> let's talk about that at what point in your yard sale, let's say you have a two-day yard sale. by the end of the first day, should you start to slash prices. >> the whole idea of a garage sale is get rid of your junk. realize people will haggle. haggling is good. can you come down. think gifts with purchase. you want to move this stuff. you do not want it to end up back in your house. start a little higher. as the day goes on. >> a lot of people in my neighborhood team together. they all bring their stuff and have one big yard sale. >> that's an effective way of doing it particularly if you're going to do it once a year. a lot of places require you can only do it once a year. >> you're going to throw a garage sale or tag sale or yard sale, here are the things you need to have.
8:49 am
>> start collecting grocery store, newspaper to wrap up, bubble wrap, tags, an extension cord is good to have if you have electronics. you don't want people to go into your house to see if a light works. they might not take your word for it. a calculator. a good thing to have on hand, a tape measure, you don't want somebody to buy a sofa and not get it into their house. >> change. >> most people you need ones and fives mostly. very important, all sales final. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your advice. when we come back, we're going to take you to what is called pa man-b-q.

9:09 am
has kids, you're coming in with assets and he has assets, you have to protect yourself. the sooner you start that discussion and work out the details, the better. it will guide how you handle the rest of your financial life. i'm personally a fan of yours, mine and ours account. that's how my husband and i do it. we have a prenup, and you want to set it up before you head into the ceremony itself so you know how it's all going to work. >> congratulations, dawn, best of luck. >> thank you. only e-mail question, sheryl writes -- i was laid out with a company that i'm vested with. they are now offer a lump sum of $19,000. i have the option to wait five more year and collect the monthly installment of $145, which is the better way? >> to annuityize or take the lump sum? a couple clarifications.
9:10 am
if they give you the lump sum, you don't have to pay taxes up front, you can do an i.r.a. rollover. annuity, you get a guaranteed income stream for life, in your case it's $196 for the rest of your life. if you were married you could do a survive benefit. it would be a little less money. or you can do what's called an i.r. article rollover, they take that $19,000, you manage the money for the rest of your life and you pull the money out. the key is here, what's better for you? it depends on you. if i give you that $19,000, is there a risk you'll spend it all right away? if that's the case, i recommend the annuity payment. the annuity payment probably has about a return of 4% on the money. the next question is if you took the money and managed it yourself could you earn more than 4%? i would tell you i think you could. so my recommendation, if you're responsible, i would do the
9:11 am
i.r.a. rollover, roll that money into an i.r.a. account. if you're not responsible, take the annuity payment. >> thank you, david. sally is calling in from pennsylvania. good morning, sally. >> good morning. >> what's your question? >> 60 years old, female who has been unemployed for three years, and is uninsured with a heart condition. next summer i will need a new defibrillator. i need health insurance, but without income, i don't know what to do. i do not qualify for medicaid, because i own my home. i'm using money from my retirement cuss. so are there any suggestions? >> that's a tough situations. >> i'm so sorry to hear about your condition and situation, but there are options for you. let's start with probably the best option, to look at the high-risk insurance pool in your state. in pennsylvania that's called pennsylvania fair care. you should get some type of insurance. right now insurers don't want to insure you, but under this plan,
9:12 am
you will be able to do it, you have a preexisting condition, you're a state residence, a u.s. citizen and unemployed for six months or more, so you request of for this. it's about a $285 month premium and $1,000 deductible. that may sound like a lot of money, but being uninsured and having to pay for the costs yourself is a lot more. and look to see whether you could get early enrollment into medicare and social security disability benefits, see if you can qualify for two years. if you are able to do so, you may then be able to get medicare at 62 rather than 65. go to try to look for a job. if you're an employer, they cannot demy you benefits because of a preexisting conditions, and try to get discount benefits. each health insurance has a discount cart. i tried to use it myself, and
9:13 am
you can get great deals. that's another way to look at to reduce the costs. talk to the hospital about a payment plan when you need to get it. best of luck. for those of you on the east coast, mr. newlywed will be sticking around to answer questions about couples and money during a live web chat at up next, nail polish to outdoor entertaining, the five things you must have this summer, according to the popular blog "complain cakes cakes & cashmere." later on, how to make dinner ekevy nit of the week.radition first, these messages. ek. first these messages. is gone. but what about your wrinkles. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair. it has the fastest retinol formula available. it's clinically proven to visibly reduce wrinkles in just one week.
