(Studio) Promise of immunity to Anthony Kiritsis in Indianapolis last week wasn't kept and has caused controversy.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Indianapolis, IN) Today's court proceedings noted. Defense attorney says he'll ask case thrown out due to prosecutor promise of immunity which was taken away. [Attorney Owen MULLIN - says officers of court haven't right to lie; says United States Attorney General says they haven't right and so does ABA.] [Cnty. prosecutor James KELLEY - equates situation to that of forced check signing.] There's some support for Kiritsis, but many say they've lost any sympathy they may have had. Local Chamber of Commerce members say they feel so. [WOMAN - says it has caused several similar crimes.] [MAN - says such actions can't be tolerated.] Kiritsis' attorney expected to ask trial be held somewhere else.
