Sentencing underway for sheriff deputies who tortured men

Sentencing began Tuesday for six White former Mississippi sheriff deputies who tortured two Black men last year after a complaint from a neighbor that the men were living with a White woman. The sheriff deputies assaulted the men with stun guns, sex toys and liquids before forcing them to shower together. One of the sheriff deputies then shot one of the victims in the mouth in a mock execution and planted evidence in an attempt to cover up the crimes. Former prosecutor Steve Baric joined CBS News to talk about the case.
