5:02 pm
to hold him accountable. we want a sense of justice for that baby. >> reporter: matthew zabala will be back in court to enter a plea next thursday. officials say he is inside of the main jail but is being segregated from other inmates because in jail a a person of committed a crime against a child is at risk of getting harmed. so he is being segregated. also the sheriff setting up a gofundme page to raise money to pay for the funeral for the baby. we will put that information on the ktvu webpage. jesse gary, ktvu. >> you heard the sheriff stay there were no prohibitions against matthew zabala but it seems like there might have been some safeguards in place. >> reporter: that is exactly the case. there weren't, now, let's be clear, this case he was convicted for was back in 2009
5:03 pm
so that is eat years ago and now this is today but there were no safeguards as far as him having a monitor with him around children even though he had a previous conviction for child abuse. it could be the length of time and not any history as far as this specific child. so by the time they realized that she was being abused it was too late. as i said, he intentionally crushed her skull. a very, very sad case. a federal appeals court says hearts may be with kidnapped survivor jaycee dugard but the law is not. a judge upheld the dismissal of her suit regarding parole officers. the court found the government is not liable for the actions of

5:05 pm
officers who may have had sex with her while she was under age. she told me she will go to rehab for substance abuse. i exchanged text with her before she left. she told me her rehab is far away because it is to put you in a completely new environment. she said richmond police are paying for their rehab. but police say that is not the case and that no wichman taxpayer dollars are involved. my are copies of the paperwork and she said the sergeant is handling all of that. that sgt., she said, is in the richmond police department. i reached out to him but he did not want to comment. in a past interviewed you can see he is standing outside of the family justice center. it is a center for families affected by domestic violence and human trafficking. my asked of the chief if the
5:06 pm
center helped her in anyway. she confirmed the department did refer celeste guap to the center to get counseling services. the police chief has declined to say who is picking up the tab. he says, doing so could violate state law. the mayor said it should not matter who is paying for it. he told me in our humanity why aren't we grateful that she has found help. civil rights attorney says he hopes celeste guap has not signed away her legal rights. >> i would be concerned as a lawyer as to if she is getting a benefit here it meant giving up any rights she may have. >> reporter: we have not gotten any answers as to who is paying for the rehab. i did talk to a rehab center
5:07 pm
where she is staying and they would not talk specifics but they confirmed they do take most insurance. >> what is the status of the case against the police officers? >> reporter: no one has been criminally charge. several have resigned. a number of them are on leave so the case continues. >> i want to go back to the rehab. is it common for police to give a ride to help someone get to rehab? >> reporter: one of the allegations is that these officers were close to her, so close that they would give her rides home. keep in mind she is the daughter of an oakland police dispatcher. what is clearly unusual is that no city has ever had this kind of scrutiny for this kind of interaction with someone like celeste guap.

5:11 pm
>> just the way that he pitched, how well he pitched, to be that close to a no-hitter against a club we are battling with does do a lot for the club. >> everyone had a little pep a little pep in their step after the game last night. hopefully we can keep it going. >> had he sealed the deal it would have been his first major league no-hitter but not his first professional no-hitter, he actuallyto one in the minor leagues. he said that they was his brother's birthday so it was extra special. one note about the game tonight as we look at batting practice walking out of the cage is hernandez, he will start in right field because hunter pence not able to play. he left the game last night with tightness in his hamstring. he will not start tonight.
