R. Kelly reporter Jim DeRogatis: "Every system of Chicago has failed dozens of young black women"

R. Kelly is due back in court Thursday on his most serious charges yet. He faces 11 new counts of sexual assault and abuse. The R&B star denies all charges. Nearly 20 years ago, music critic Jim DeRogatis helped break the first story on claims against R. Kelly. In his new book, "Soulless: The Case Against R. Kelly" he says he knows of 48 women who were allegedly abused by the singer over 30 years. Kelly's attorney told CBS News "I have not read his book, nor do I care what he says. We will worry about the court and not Mr. DeRogatis." DeRogatis joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the decades he's spent following this story.
