Secret recordings released in the Missouri teen rape case

The mother of a 14 year-old alleged rape victim has released audio tapes of the conversations she had with the county prosecutor who dismissed the case.

Melinda Coleman says the tapes prove she and her daughter, Daisy Coleman cooperated with authorities and only invoked their 5th amendment rights after the felony charges were dropped.

But do the tapes conclusively prove the prosecutor dropped the ball?

George Howell is Outfront with the story.
