11:10 pm
in its lot. as of last week, some are designated as safe parking spaces for unhoused people in the community. they set up wash station, a port-a-potty. there is access to a shower and they're providing free wifi. but unfortunately parking program coordinator christopher cann says it was a herculean effort to get this approved. how many spaces are we talking here? >> four. four passenger vehicles, not rvs. most will have one to two people. so the typical capacity of our lot we will typically have six people statistically. >> reporter: the application process allows neighbors to object, which is what happened. a board member at the senior living facility next door asked for a review, which dragged out the process. she eventually dropped the request after ken and other church members explained the program. we reached out to that board member for comment and have not got a response. >> pushback is fine. some of it is necessary. it creates conversation. i think it's the outcome that matters more than anything.
11:11 pm
>> reporter: amber stine heads up move mountainview, a homeless management that provides a security patrol, case management and other services for the people using the parking spaces each night. stine says she considers use of the universalist lot a well earned success. christopher cann says it shouldn't be so difficult for church to try to help people. he hopes the city will streamline its application process and make it easier for other churches to make their lots available to people who could use them. in palo alto, i'm sergio quintana, nbc bay area news. we're following some breaking news. an american airlines flight headed to john wayne airport in orange county was diverted after investigators say a passenger assaulted a flight attendant. that plane landed in denver, where police took that passenger into custody. then the plane continued on to orange county. american says the passenger will not be allowed to fly on that airline again. no word on how that flight attendant is doing this evening.

we're back in 60 seconds. still ahead, new revelations about that accidental shooting death involving alec baldwin. tonight we're hearing from the district attorney about who the focus of this investigation. plus -- >> how often do violent criminals go free in san francisco? one lawmaker is trying to force the district attorney to release new details about how his i was fights crime. >> what are the interventions he is making to keep victims safe? because i'd like to hear that. >> i'm senior investigative reporter. stay tuned. i'm chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. what a beautiful night across san jose tonight. i'm tracking the good weather tomorrow. updated details on our next chance of rain. i'll see you in about six minutes.
11:13 pm
11:14 pm
tonight we expose more allegations against san francisco's embattled district attorney chesa boudin. he is fighting for his job. thousands of san franciscans want him recalled. >> one lawmaker claims he is putting lives in danger, and is trying to force the d.a. to release details about how his office prosecutes dangerous criminals. here is senior investigative reporter bigad shaban. >> reporter: san francisco supervisor katherine stephanie says the district attorney's office lessens charges or even drops them all together in cases involving some of the city's most violent crimes. >> the fact that these cases are being brought to him and not charged, and no intervention is made, i think it's incompetent. >> reporter: stephanie wants to know how often this happen, but says the d.a.'s office won't say. >> what are the interventions he is making to keep victims safe? because i'd like to hear that. and he thinks lack of prosecution is the answer, i'd like to know why. >> reporter: according to police
11:15 pm
records, san francisco officers made 131 arrests for felony domestic violence at the end of last year. these are cases involving injuries, weapons, and children. but the d.a.'s office dismissed 113 of those cases. that's 86%. we asked for updated data from the district attorney's office, but the d.a.'s staff never gave it to us. >> which raised alarm bells for me. i thought this can't be right. domestic violence cases are hard to prosecute, but i've been a prosecutor before, and that made no sense to me. >> reporter: stephanie will hold a hearing tomorrow on new legislation she's pushing that would force the d.a. to release quarterly reports detailing what charges are used in domestic violence cases and how often. she points to a case where man was arrested for threatening his wife with a gun to her head, pulling out a knife, and throwing her to the ground, injuring her in front of their 2-year-old son. his original charges included domestic violence, child endangerment, and assault with a deadly weapon. according to the court records
11:16 pm
we obtained. but the district attorney's office cut him a deal, allowing him to plead to just a misdemeanor for vandalism. which included one year of domestic violence counseling and three years' probation. >> how does that break the cycle of violence? how does that help anybody in that case? so i'm very alarmed and i'm very worried. and that's why my legislation will hopefully shine a light on what is actually happening and provide more transparency. because there is not a lot of transparency right now coming out of the d.a.'s office. >> reporter: in a statement, a d.a.'s spokesperson told us the plea deal reflects the victim's wishes, who wanted her husband to be able to continue working to provide financially for their child. >> thanks for joining us this evening. >> reporter: speaking live on nbc bay area earlier this week, one of the d.a.'s managing attorneys defended the office, anne boudin. >> you can't pick one or two individual sensationalized cases and say that chesa is not accomplishing what he ran on, a platform that he ran on, which was to bring reform to a broken
11:17 pm
criminal justice system. >> reporter: the d.a.'s office also says we have no records of supervisor stefani requesting any documents. but this letter shows the supervisor himself responding to stephani about some of their questions. the d.a.'s office also told us our ability to provide data is extremely limited, blaming decades old computer systems at the court and d.a.'s office, which they say they're working to update. we tried to talk with the d.a. about how his office prosecutes cases, but as we first showed you sunday, he didn't want to talk with us. you've been avoiding our questions, sir. >> no not at all. >> reporter: okay. can we pause here for a second? we first asked the d.a. for an interview on june 11th. at one point he agreed to sit down with us. but then his staff asked to limit the topics we could
11:18 pm
discuss. we said no. two hours later, boudin's office canceled saying something had come up on the d.a.'s calendar, but promised to reschedule. and then silence. despite our repeated follow-up calls and emails. and so we filed a public records request, and got ahold of the d.a.'s calendar, which shows his commitments like staff meetings and appointments with community groups. and here is the day the d.a. was supposed to meet with us. our interview is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. but you can see his afternoon is wide open. there is no conflict listed. stefani hopes her legislation forces the d.a. to be more transparent. she says the public deserves to know how often dangerous criminals are set free. do you think people are being put in danger as a result of this? >> i do, i do. it worries me. >> reporter: you might remember on sunday we aired the first part of our investigation roving those former prosecutors who recently joined the recall
11:19 pm
campaign against their former boss. district attorney chesa boudin. they accused him of making san francisco more dangerous. well, the d.a. didn't talk to us then either. and earlier this week, his office made one of its managing attorneys available to refute some of those accusations, but still not boudin himself. tomorrow will mark day 139 since we first started asking the d.a. for an interview. with the investigative unit, i'm bigad shaban. >> thank you. if you have a story for our investigate unit, call or visit our website, let's bring in jeff ranieri now, talk about our weather. we have two big things. rain maybe next week. but first and foremost, halloween this weekend. >> we're coming through with halloween. that forecast is going to be pretty awesome here, especially as we roll through tomorrow. we had great weather today. and we've got more of that again, lining up. so let me show you what i'm
11:20 pm
watching here. it's this area of high pressure that's going to be moving more over california, keeping it mild. i see a 2 to 3-degree warm-up gwen tomorrow's forecast and the dry conditions. so let's get you set up and ready to go for that thursday forecast closer to the weekend. it feels good, right? all right. almost there. 55 for the south bay peninsula. 56 tri-valley coming in with 53. some more jacket weather in play here. and we'll see those mid-50s over the east bay and san francisco. now by the afternoon, a substantial warm-up tomorrow considering where we were this past weekend, with lots of 50s. we're back up into the 70s. 74 here in san jose. down in morgan hill, 76. watch as we head to the microclimates against. plenty of sunshine and relatively light winds. don't feel left out. over towards the east bay, just as nice. 76 in antioch. 75 in danville and low 70s from oakland to hayward. the peninsula coming in with 73 in redwood city. san francisco will have a few 70s right around the mission. but if you're headed to the
11:21 pm
marina or the outer sunset, we'll have the cooler 60s. and let's move it off to the north bay. this is where we did have the most storm damage. the rivers, creeks and streams were running really high a couple days ago. this perfect weather, if you have any storm cleanup, and certainly to let those waters recede. 75 in sonoma. 73 in mill valley. dry weather all the way through sunday for halloween. and then by next monday and tuesday, still holding on to some rain chance. we're good for a quarter to half inch for most areas. and then north bay could be getting in 3/4 of an inch. right here in san francisco looking at 63 for halloween. and we'll stick with low 60s into early next week and across the inland valleys. low 70s the next two days. and then we drop to the 60s and some clouds this weekend. but, raj, as you wanted, good weather on halloween. i think that's going to be coming in. and jessica, i know this is your favorite holiday.
11:22 pm
my. >> my kids love it. >> i'm going as you this year. >> want to borrow this tie? >> thank you. i want to see that photo too. well, happening now, power has been restored to nearly all customers who lost electricity during the storm earlier this week. flow is still a few homes in hard-hit areas where roads remain closed. pg&e says it will continue to work to get the lights back on for those customers as quickly as it can. we'll be right back.

world series and dusty baker. also, the special request for jimmy g. for this sunday's game in chicago. we'll explain.
11:28 pm
i didn't have to shout out for help. because you didn't have another dvt. not today. one blood clot puts you at risk of having another, so we chose xarelto®, to help keep you protected.
11:29 pm
xarelto® is proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. almost 98% of people did not have another dvt or pe. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, a spinal injection increases risk of blood clots, which may cause paralysis. you may bruise more easily or take longer to stop bleeding. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. don't take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. help protect yourself from another dvt or pe. ask your doctor about xarelto®. to learn more about cost, visit or call 1-888-xarelto okay. big question. can they salvage the season? the 49ers need, need, need a win
