5:05 am
not repeat these statements again. >> reporter: in a crowded meeting tuesday night, people who called for hsu's admonishment and her supporters were each given time to make public comments. many called on hsu to step down saying her comments hurt students and families of color. >> shame on you! you should be embarrassed! >> reporter: but hsu's sup supporters insisted she apologized and should be allowed to learn her lesson. some blame the push to admonish her on toxic cancel culture. >> the majority of san francisco supports you, ann. we see the hypocrisy. we see the hypocrisy of the people in the news. >> reporter: that's when the meeting devolved into chaos with supporters and critics of hsu shouting over each other. >> that's the problem. >> i'm going to -- i'm calling

>> i didn't pay much attention to it, after all the years passed it's piled up thousands of dollars. >> reporter: now the 30-something single mother and caregiver owes about $8,000 to the courts, much of it from late charges called civil assessment fees. for example, fees added to a $35 fine for running a stop sign can increase the cost to $538. civil rights attorney rio scharf says california has some of the highest traffic court fees in the nation and many are imposed not as punishment but to raise funds for the court system. >> these civil assessments were raising about $100 million a year for the courts and they were raising that money directly from lower income californians, those who were most likely to miss a payment date. >> reporter: he's part of a law group fighting the fees in sacramento and last month ab-199 went into effect, canceling all back debt for civil assessments.
5:08 am
the law also lowers future assessments to $100 and sends that money directly to the state so county courts won't be tempted to impose fees just to raise revenue. >> we estimate that the debt relief in ab-199 will result in the discharge of over $500 million of debt for more than 1 million californians. >> reporter: that's good news for selena, if she only knew about it. do you know what the situation is now? >> no, not really, i don't. >> reporter: do you know you don't have any debt right now? >> see, i didn't know that. >> reporter: no one told you that? >> nobody told me that. >> reporter: it's been a month now, and few who owe money even know about the debt forgiveness, and scharf says some courts are continuing to collect the civil assessment fees when they're paid. he says any debt payments made after july 1st should be refunded and people like selena should have a chance to put their past mistakes in the rear view mirror. in oakland, john ramos, kpix 5.

5:32 am
we could have done that the whole time. they're coming from the desert southwest and that monsoon is still trying to throw the possibility for thunderstorms into the state but the sierra is kind of like the barrier, doesn't get any farther than that. it's not like on monday where it was able to throw the showers far enough our way. we'll feel some of the humidity from that. it's not like we're dealing with much in the way of an actual thunderstorm threat and instead we just have a quiet looking seven chb day forecast. we'll stay in the low to mid 80s for san jose for the next seven days and for the microclimates, these are actually your warmest days, yesterday, today, tomorrow, we'll keep a lot of low to mid-90s around through thursday but by the time we get into the weekend, we will start cooling back down a bit. it will be low to mid 80s for daytime highs for most of those warmest inland locations. that's where the forecast ends for now. gianna, over to you. >> let's look at the roadways right now. i'm keeping an eye on the bay bridge. i don't know if you can see it off to the side of the barriers that separate the lanes there. looks like there was some damage
