6:00 pm
>> reporter: look right behind me there. that's the alleged brothel under this sign my div i know know -- my divine skin. opening a second private investigations office to screen potential job applicants. instead cbs5 learned he has told investigators he opened a brothel here with the help of norm welsh the commander of the police task force, the very same police force that polices brothels. >> reporter: an empty space now but over a period of nine months in 2009 and 2010 neighbors at this office park in the 600 block of gregory called police repeatedly because of the women they observed working here. >> they were hardly dressed. always totally made up. >> when you talked to police
6:01 pm
you told them what? what did you think it was? >> i thought it was prostitution for sure. what else was it going to be? and i told him that. >> reporter: cbs5 learned the state department of justice is now investigating a claim that this was a brothel. the claim was made recently in a written confession by private investigator chris butler. butler reports that he and his friend norm welsl, the former commander of the task force were running this brothel. the two were arrested for stealing drugs confiscated by police and re-selling them on the street among other crimes. according to two sources butler confessed to investigators that he was renting this office space at 670 gregory suite b and that he hired working girls. police records indicate a neighbor called the cops. >> what would you see here? here? two things. they would come, knock on the door. first of all, it was always, always guys. they would knock on the door and then they would look up at
6:02 pm
the camera. the camera was right up there. then somebody would see who it was evidently then they would open the door about this wide. the guy would sneak in and they would close it and lock the door again. >> reporter: this man is a chiropractor. he called cnet every week for months. he thought his calls were going nowhere until investigators looking into butler and w -- the two. >> what did they say? >> that it got pass up to the head of cnet. i never met that gentleman but he was part owner of this evidently and that he had been
6:03 pm
setting up a massage. >> chris butler cannot be trusted. he is out there. he is trying to save himself some jail time and the way he is doing that is by lying. >> reporter: the attorney who represents wilesch says butler was lying. >> he has spoken to law enforcement and told them my client was involved in running a brothel. that's not true. this is butler at his criminal best. butler apparently bought the furniture for this would-be brothel according to what he is saying. he was the one who signed the lease. he was the one who paid the rent. he was the one that collected the money from the prostitutes. but yet he is blaming other people and he is trying to drag my client into this mess in order to garner some sort of support. >> reporter: i should mention that i tried to reach chris butler through his attorney and did not get a return phone
6:04 pm
call. allen, we also called the prosecutors that are working on this case. no comment from them either. >> no charges yet. joe vazquez, thanks. it was one of the last decisions he made as governor and tonight arnold schwarzenegger is still getting heat for it. now in the form of a lawsuit. just before he left office arnold schwarzenegger commuted the prison sentence for the son of former california assembly speaker nunez. he pleaded guilty for the 2008 stabbing death of a san diego college student. arnold schwarzenegger reduced the prison sentence from 16 to 7 years and today the san diego county district attorney, a republican, filed a lawsuit saying that the governor violated victims' rights. >> we believe a governor who is considering a commutation has a constitutional duty under
6:05 pm
marcy's law to encode the voices of victims. in this case this clearly didn't happen. as a result of the governor's failure to do that, the victims' constitutional rights were violated. >> the lawsuit seeks to reinstate the 16-year prison sentence. it is believed to be the first lawsuit of its kind in the nation. if you pay extra to use an express lane you probably expect it to be faster. new figures reveal just how much time drivers are saving by using the lane on southbound 680. phil matier is going to show us it doesn't seem to add up to much. >> reporter: that's right. we are here at the southern end of the grate which at one time was one of the busiest commutes in the bay area and that's why the state decided to put in the fast toll lane here to make the commute easier. well, times change and guess what, so did the time and the idea on this. here is the story. built at a cost of about 30 million this new express toll lane was opened last year as a
6:06 pm
way to reduce traffic congestion along this 14-mile stretch of interstate 680. the idea? offer noncar poolers a faster ride at a price, of course. >> the express lane gives the opportunities for solo drivers paying a toll to use that capacity when they to. >> reporter: they set up a toll lane between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. where from a price ranging from 30 cents to as high as 7.50 commuters can ride in the car pool lanes. >> the real boom of the dot com era, a few years ago it was a terrible commute. >> reporter: but the boom went bust. now traffic is nowhere near what it was back then and neither are the supposed time savings. get this, according to cal- trans during the morning rush hour, the average morning commute time in the regular lane is 12 minutes. in the toll lane, it is 11
6:07 pm
minutes. the difference. about 1 minute. that's right. the difference between the fast toll lane and a regular lane is only 1 minute. >> 1 minute. that's not very much of a difference. >> but the lane offerings reliability. if you need to get somewhere to a meeting, to work, you get there right after you dropped your child and you don't have minutes to spare, that trip is a reliable guaranteed faster trip. the average user is using that lane about twice a month. >> reporter: how long will it take to earn back the 30 million we spent setting it all up? >> tolls don't pay for the 30 million. >> who does? >> the road is paid for by bridge tolls, taxpayer money, sales tax and grants. just like every other highway in the bay area. >> reporter: well, despite the lack of traffic the transportation folks are still happy with the way this turned out. they said the use is pretty much on par with the revised
6:08 pm
projections. that's the post-dot com projections.. >> maybe if they can guarantee me fewer potholes i might go there. >> reporter: maybe they can. >> all right. phil matier. >> reporter: talk to you. >> thanks a lot. the cash strapped city of antioch finds itself with some money to burn but there are strings attached. ann notarangelo is in antioch to explain the unusual position the city finds itself in. ann? >> reporter: dana, not too long ago this city was worried about bankruptcy and they are still pinching pennies but in an unusual twist the city now has nearly $2 million it has to spend on something fun. >> this is the library. >> reporter: the new community center opened in january. in addition to the library, gym and meeting room it has become
6:09 pm
a focal point in antioch. the money to build it and neighboring water park came from a special tax funds. since 1989 homes in the area have paid between $100 and $250 a month extra in taxes to build eight schools and build up a community family park. when the project ended under budget the city realized it had an extra 1.7 million to spend but strings are attached. >> they are for infrastructure, they are not for salaries an maintenance. >> reporter: so the money that would essentially balance the city's budget or pay for 10 police officers can only be spent at the park. this type of pigeon holding of money is very common and meant with good intentions so voters know how money will be spent. it also can be problematic. >> what will sometimes happen is you'll get money so restricted that you're in a straight jacket about how you use it and that doesn't benefit, i think, cities and school districts. my personal opinion. as much as if you gave them a
6:10 pm
little more lee ray. >> reporter: the city doesn't want to spend 1 dollar more than what was collected. expanding the library. building a marquis in front advertising events. >> some people e-mailed me today and said give me the money back. >> can you do that? >> no, it was a ballot measure and we would be breaking the contract with the voters who asked that the moneys be raised and spent. >> you're going to get an earful, aren't you? >> we are. >> reporter: among those with an opinion. >> i would love to see a court complex or field. >> reporter: he believes thousands of kids would benefit from turf fields like this one in richmond for soccer, baseball, football and rugby. something the city doesn't have right now. >> i want to see something done that will bring people to the park rather than throw money at the park hoping somebody will show up. >> reporter: the public will get to weigh in this summer during community meetings and those who will make the final decision know it will be
6:11 pm
scrutinized. >> the voters are quite anxious about any monies that are spent in these times. i wouldn't blame them for it. >> reporter: there is no timetable for when they have to spend the money so they are really in no rush. maybe 3 to 6 months they will have a better idea what will be a good fit for this park. in antioch, ann knob, cbs5. a setback for anyone trying to buy a home in the bay area. why it just got a little harder to get that loan. > these bay area women are learning to shoot. but gun safety training may not actually be enough. what will actually double their risk for homicide. coming up next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:24 pm
pedestrian deaths in half. >> when cars are going less fast, the collisions that may occur are less serious. so you can actually save lives and reduce injuries by lowering the speed limit and enforcing that speed limit and make the streets safer. >> that really sucks. >> reporter: as you might imagine many drivers are slow to warm to such an idea. >> prevent the pedestrian deaths. do you think it would help? >> no. people need to wake up. that's why we have coffee. wake up. wake up, san francisco. you need to be alert. >> reporter: not hard to spot jaywalkers anywhere in the city. another plan. cars that drive slower make the green lights. >> what we have done is slowed the traffic signals to meet 13 miles per hour rather than 25 miles per hour. so people catch green lights when they are going at the 13- mile-an-hour rate. >> reporter: this happened in

6:26 pm
into your bag and if you have a sensor in there to remove it. >> reporter: the police captain says walking back in does two things. >> one, it resolves the question of what you're doing. and secondarily when you get home you are not using the plyers to be able to wear your article of clothing you just purchased. >> reporter: even if you're in a hurry go back in. even if you're approached by store security relax. >> folks get startled, they get upset. they don't like people coming up to them and that's where things can get a little out of hand. >> reporter: california law allows security or an employee to briefly detain you. even make a citizen's arrest if they catch you shop liftling. just be cool. you didn't do anything wrong and you won't incriminate yourself. >> sometimes people get upset and think well they can't talk to me. in fact, the law encourages them to take some reasonable action, maybe look in your big. so that's why i encourage folks to cooperate.

6:31 pm
will guarantee by $100,000. >> it is the difference between a bedroom, 1000 square feet. >> reporter: home buyers that want that extra bedroom could have to pay as much as $1000 more a month. >> they are trying to take a very calculated approach. >> reporter: the new lower limits on federal loan guarantees are a backlash against the rising number of defaults on so-called jumbo loans. >> the government is saying, we will give you a little bit more money to keep you propped up but we won't continue to guarantee these high limit loans. >> reporter: the new limits vary from county to county. the limit dropping from $729,000 to $625,000. $400,000 in solono county. >> they were the ones -- i don't want to say the biggest problem but in a way they were the ones that were defaulting at the highest. >> reporter: what does this all mean? less risk for government and taxpayers but mother headaches for home buyers who will will have a harder time to qualify
