The ayres re-trial is on hold, while they evaluate the old molester with regard to his alleged mental incompetence. The "medical evaluation" will be finished April 28th. At which point team ayres will come up with some other strategy for delay. Meanwhile the trial date is vacated.
Read Joshua Melvin's report here.
More detailed report by Michelle Durand here.
According to Durand, IF ayres is found "incompetent" he'll go to a state mental hospital for treatment until he's better. Sounds cushy.
According to the version in the Mercury News, this incompetence claim stems from a "recent medical event." You'll note that WAY BACK IN OCTOBER, I predicted that that's what they were gunning for when they sealed his medical records.(It's about the 5th paragraph down... starts out: "The defense filed a motion to seal 3 exhibits.")
Also this afternoon: Our good friend over at the Mills Peninsula Health Services Lawsuit Watch blog, has delivered some cheer this afternoon, in the form of yet another choice topical photo linking back to us over here. (It's on the far right side of the page, for newer readers.) Thanks, Patient Advocate!
ALSO: There is a new civil suit filed against ayres.
