11:01 am
turn herself back into police to face additional charges related to the alleged inappropriate relationship with the teenage boy who still attends school here. this is a relationship police say started in the late spring as communication between the 32-year-old teacher and student. police say the communication eventually became inappropriate and by early summer led to sexual intercourse off campus. the police say they did not become aware of this until last wednesday when someone called 911. detectives investigated for 24 hours, and then on thanksgiving day, that was thursday, they arrested audiat. police have learned that there were a few people aware of the alleged inappropriate relationship. they're investigating if any of the people were required by law to report this much sooner. the teacher was arrested thursday on charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and oral copulation. the district attorney is charging her with five more crimes related to the inappropriate communications.
11:02 am
>> at this point in time we have no evidence that there are additional victims. however, we have followed up on some leads throughout this last week and through our investigation. and we will continue to do so if anybody brings information to us that leads us to believe that there could be another victim. so we strongly encourage parents to talk to their children and to not feel fearful of coming forward. >> reporter: audiat, who has been with the school district since 2008 used to teach at american high. she coached swimming at mission san jose and has been a p.e. teacher here at washington since 2012. this morning the superintendent of the fremont unified school direct showed us a copy of the letter he e-mailed to students and parents at washington as well as the swim team at mission letting them know what happened. here is one mother whose 16-year-old son attends washington high. >> reporter: what do you tell
11:03 am
your son in a situation like this? >> oh. well, he have to be careful, you know, especially with the teachers. they are more friendly than normal. and then sometimes, if they are invited to enjoy time apart to the school, it's more dangerous, and you have to be careful about it. >> reporter: the superintendent tells us that the district is cooperating with police and making every effort to make students feel safe, for instance, by having extra counselors on site today. when we asked the superintendent what's the employment status of ca rhein audiat, he says she is no longer with the district. reporting live. bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> thank you very much, bob. >> bob, thank you very much. all new at 11:00, the california department of justice is soon going to have a new leader at the helm. governor brown named u.s. congressman xavier bacerra to succeed kamala harris as the
11:04 am
next california attorney general. bacerra served 12 terms in congress and was making a bid to become the ranking democrat on the house ways and means committee when brown called him to offer the job. bacerra would be the state's first latino attorney general. he put up this statement this morning. governor brown has presented me with an opportunity i cannot refuse, to serve as attorney general of my home state. as a former deputy attorney general i relish the chance to be our state's chief law enforcement officer to protect consumers, advance criminal justice reform and, of course, keep our families safe. close quote. this comes about after kamala harris was elected to the u.s. senate in september. >> thousands of people ride b.a.r.t. in the transbay. but b.a.r.t. directors say they need to spend more than a quarter billion dollars to keep it safe in the event of a major earthquake.
11:05 am
pete suratos is live in san francisco, where b.a.r.t. directors say, pete, that the tube is structurally sound, but it is predicted to crack if there is a major quake. so how worried should we be? >> reporter: actually the b.a.r.t. board meeting is taking place in downtown oakland. it's still under way right now. they have yet to discuss this issue. but essentially the $200 plus million would be used to further reinforce the transbay tube. they have things in place and say it's structurally sound but this is about preparing for the next big earthquake. b.a.r.t. has done several retrofits at several stations through the earthquake safety program. they say the transbay tube received 60,000 riders and is structurally sound already. two years ago they reinforced the tube's stealing lining but in the event of a major quake, the outer liner could crack and the leakage would make evacuation for riders virtually
11:06 am
impossible. altogether, if the vote goes through later on as we expect, the money comes from bond money that was passed about a decade ago to retrofit the tube. here is a b.a.r.t. person explaining the repairs that would be done. >> now we have come to the very end of this program, and it's really the heaviest lift. we need to put steel plates inside the tube, and not only that, increase the pumping system that we have in there to make it better and more powerful. >> reporter: so as far as next steps, b.a.r.t. will have to discuss how the retrofit will affect riders. they'll be starting trains at 5:00 a.m. during the week to work around the construction. altogether b.a.r.t. says it will take about two and a half years to finish the project. if the vote goes through the project will start in the summer of 2018. live in oakland, pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> pete, thank you very much. we have just learned that within the last few minutes all

11:09 am
spanned multiple counties is now over. both inmates are behind bars and will be back at the jail that they broke out of. this time, they'll be under maximum security. this is a story that we've been following closely ever since it broke on thanksgiving morning. rogelio chavez was caught about 8:20 last night a day after the other fugitive. laron campbell, was caught. chavez was taken into skocustodt the home of a friend of his. the sheriff says at one point chavez was hiding in the attic but eventually deputies discovered him and he was taken without issue into handcuffs. >> thanks to the incredible team of sheriff's office detectives that have been working around the clock on this arrest. and the capture of the two fugitives. and captured within a week. they've left no stone unturned and many, many sleepless nights.

11:17 am
to a health inspection and also require that no food could be served that was prepared in private homes. abuse, starvation, even branding. those are some of the disturbing new details that authorities are revealing in the case of this abducted mother from redding, who was later found in yolo county on thanksgiving day. sherri papini was found beaten and shackled three weeks after disappearing apparently while out on a jog that morning. authorities are now looking for two women who papini says hid their faces and spoke mostly in spanish while holder her captive. >> i will confirm that the suspects did brand her. i will not get into the details of where the brand is located on her body nor what was branded on her for, again, the integrity of the investigation. >> while investigators are still treating this as a legitimate abduction, they have not yet been able to pinpoint a motive. a sketch artist is now using the

11:27 am
questions about who gets free tickets and how they are given out. warriors tickets were the topic of discussion. for example, eight luxury suite tickets could have a face value of up to $10,000. councilmembers are allowed to use the tickets to make sure the arena is being run properly and can allow family members to use them or bring a guest but only if the transaction is documented properly. the commission believes the documentation process is in question. that was made clear to oakland alameda county coliseum's executive director. >> it's your job to determine whether or not these people should be going to four games in an eight-day span or not, not mine. >> we need to be accountable for our actions but most of all the system itself has to be presented with what are the rules and what's the procedure to be able to create the reporting. >> reporter: sheryl hurd, nbc
