'Sins of the Father'

Scott speaks with Tom Cherry, son of Bobby Frank Cherry, who has been accused of involvement in the infamous 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama which killed 4 young girls. Until now, the son has corroborated his father's alibi regarding his whereabouts on the night before the blast. The story has been dramatized in the FX Cable Network movie, Sins of the Father, which airs this Sunday night.
