We have breaking news tonight on debt talks. President Obama met with fellow Democrats and tried to coax them into backing a deal to cut spending immediately, then cut entitlements and raise revenue later. Jessica Yellin will have the latest from Washington. Plus, the con man who saw the light and turned his life around. He built a new career busting other frauds, but old ways apparently die hard. He returned to a life of crime and learned his sentence today. That story as we wrap up our 'Crime and Punishment' series on con men. Plus, tonight's other headlines.
