How Young Is Too Young? -- Arresting Young Boys
How far will people go to follow orders? A man posing as a police officer convinces fast food workers across the country to do unthinkable things to co-workers � all via telephone. How could a man be so convincing that strangers would act out his cruel requests? John Qui�ones updates his report from last year on this bizarre crime � including what happened to the Louisville, Kentucky McDonald's assistant manager and her fianc� who performed the caller's demands, as well as the man from Florida who was on trial for allegedly being behind the hoax. Louise, a woman who fell victim to the hoax, filed a $200 million lawsuit against McDonalds for failing to protect her from the abuse, and is now awaiting a verdict. The report airs on "20/20," FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Plus: Twenty-five years after placing their baby, born out of wedlock, up for adoption, the unimaginable happens to a couple� they learn that the wife's employee is also their birth daughter. Bob Brown reports on an uncanny twist of fate.
And: Two middle-school boys were charged with five counts of felony sex abuse in the first degree because of what they did at an Oregon school to several 13-year-old girls. Was their spanking fellow female students in the butt really sexual harassment, as the prosecutor contended, and did it really warrant six days in jail? John Stossel reports.
"20/20" is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and John Stossel. David Sloan is executive producer.
