of whats going on.' 03:13:09 iowa council 61 president - danny homan - of the american federation of state, county and municipal employees blames the escape on what he calls critically low staffing levels in iowa's correctional system and the department of corrections classification system...which he says is now designed to try and move people out as fast as they can.... by the way, anyone with information as to the whereabouts of amodeo or foley should immediately call 911. the des moines driver charged in the deadly crash of a 22 year old woman is on trial this week. troy mure junior is facing one count of vehicular homicide for the death of scalicity perez boyd. the mother of four died last november when the car she was riding in crashed on 35th street. an accident investigator determined that mure was traveling about 86 miles an hour when he

that the couple was being chased by another vehicle at the time. mure told police he saw a handgun inside that other car and it rammed him.. causing him to lose this case... the bench trial is expected to last about three days. the animal defense league is ranks iowa 49th out of 50 states in it's animal protection laws... a bill is working it's way now through the iowa legislature to change that.... ben oldach reports.... iowa's bottom of the barrel rating in animal abuse laws doesn't sit well with senator tony bisignano "we're not going up we're going down...and that's pretty pathetic for a state like iowa." senator bisignano championed senate bill 2289 which would allow crimes involving abusing pets to be elevated to a class d or c felony...but the new law wouldn't stop there. "good components in this bill requires if you're a juvenile that you will have to have counseling based on your actions. an adult is to the

discretion." in addition under the proposed law...if a person is found to have abused a pet in the presence of a child...there would be stricter penalties and wellness check would be conducted "you know, violence is violence...if you beat your dog i'm sure you probably beat your kid." stand up--"now despite the majority of support 16 senators did vote no on this bill. senator tom shipley is one of those senators saying it could negatively impact the ag industry." "and when you read in there some of the explanations, people that can control and confine animals....well that could be construed as livestock" however those in favor of the bill say that it has intentionally been written to avoid involving livestock...in fact in the title of the bill it specifically addresses this issue. still...senator shipley...an avowed animal lover... isn't convinced this bill would prevent someone from abusing an animal. "i understand protecting animals, done it myself all my life, would do it every day; but i just don't think this is necesarily the right approach and

nothing is more valuable than cash in hand... but many families in our area live paycheck to paycheck... and sometimes that next paycheck is not coming soon enough. jim mertens looks deeper into the money you borrow... when you're most in need. the offer is enticing... cash in minutes ... no credit check .. fast cash ... so you need money now. what could be easier than a payday loan? delaney : you get your loan, you pay it back, yeah, it's sort of expensive, but it's not the end of the world.. and it's popular. ten years ago there were only eight cash advance stores in all of iowa. now there's eight in davenport alone. so business is good... for the lenders. delaney : if you roll it over for 12-months, that's sort of like
9:17 pm
tony soprano couldn't have been much more than that. advance america says a 100-dollar 14 day loan will cost you 16-added dollars... that's a 430-percent annual percentage rate... check 'n go... 100 bucks for two weeks is 404-percent... check into cash... 407-percent. mertens/owen : they're just running low for this payment, i just need money for four days, doesn't a payday loan still pay off? i can't see a situation where it ever pays off, quite frankly. ascentra credit union's dale owen says payday loan companies are seen as lenders of last resort, but credit unions can be the alternative for those who have what he calls "colorful credit" histories. owen : being a realist, i know there's a lot of great people in tough times, tough situations and they're working their way out of it. and opening an account can help build credit. but that takes time. oftentimes a better alternative
9:18 pm
business in the world. nat sound : yes, anything on that table is half off. christopher shumaker has been in the pawn shop business since he was 14. though pawn shop collateral loans aren't regulated, he says they still come nowhere close to the 300- to 400- percent seen from payday lenders. shumaker : that's higher than a percentage rate you're going to get on a credit card, that's higher than a percentage you're going to pay at a pawn shop, that's higher than the percentage rate you're going to pay quite literally anywhere else. a new survey just out shows about a quarter of all americans have no savings account. so when the unexpected happens, they're stuck between a rock and a hard place. shumaker : there's single mother coming in that just need money to get to their check on friday, there's people strapped for their unforeseen bill that popped up. the other problem with payday loans is the cycle they may create. here's a list of 24 consumer credit customers trying to get their debt under control. one person with 15-payday loans... owing more than 10-thousand dollars... another just one
9:19 pm
thousand dollars. delaney : the worst thing you can do is get another loan to pay off a loan. delaney says before you take that step... get help. and the sooner the better. delaney : i'm willing to bet that there are a number of people who get payday loans that really could get other credit if they tried. some lawmakers have tried to drive payday loan companies out of business... but many in the financial industry say they offer alternatives to a segment of the population
