Lawyers in a child labor case in Iowa dispute what the manager of a slaughterhouse knew about kids working at the plant. Former manager Sholom Rubashkin faces 83 counts of child labor violation charges. Prosecutor Laura Roan showed the jury pictures of 31 kids who worked at the former Agriprocessors plant in Postville. She says children as young as 13 worked long hours and operated dangerous equipment. Rubashkin's Lawyer says his client didn't know the kids worked at the plant.
