Updates: ayres’ Civil Lawsuits and Probate Cases

Some updates to the Civil lawsuits against william ayres relating to his molestation of young boys, as well as to the probate case in which ayres’ daughter Barbara Ayres has been appointed as conservator of the child molester:

In the civil lawsuits:
All five known individual lawsuits against ayres were on hold pending outcome of any criminal re-trial. Since that effort was stalled by ayres’ dementia gambit, in three of the five cases, the attorney was told to file a motion to lift the stay so that the cases can proceed to trial.  The motion to lift the stay has been granted by Judge Freeman, and trial dates are now scheduled to proceed against the child molester.

There is a case management hearing scheduled for July 3, 2012 at 9am in all three matters, and trials are scheduled for April 8, 2013,  April 22, 2013, and May 20, 2013.

The order in itself is interesting, and reads as follows (I’ve replaced the first names of the plaintiffs with “XXXX” as the order is the same for all three plaintiffs. Defendant “John Doe 1” is william ayres – also note that witnesses have already “become unavailable”):

06/05/2012 - 9:00 AM DEPT. PJLM

Honorable Beth Labson Freeman, judge presiding.
Attorney(s): John P. Carcione appearing for plaintiff XXXX Doe.
Attorney(s): Constance I. Yu appearing via courtcall for defendant John Doe 1.
Courts tentative ruling instructed parties to appear.

Court indicated it is inclined to set this matter for trial regardless of whether the five year statute will expire this fall.

Court  indicated plaintiff is entitled to a trial before memories fade and witnesses become unavailable.

Court instructed counsel to be prepared to select a trial date at this hearing.  Matter argued by counsel and submitted to the court.

Having considered the submitted matter, the court rules as follows:

The court finds no authority to grant a stay in a civil action based on a defendant having been found not competent to stand trial in a criminal action. A defendant in a civil action not competent to stand trial may have a guardian ad litem/conservator appointed.

The court is not persuaded that waiting for the related criminal action to resolve would assist  this civil action.

Court lifts the stay in this case.  Court sets this case for jury trial on april 22nd, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. in the presiding judges  department.

Time estimate for trial = 3 weeks.

In the matter of Barbara Ayres becoming conservator of the child molester:
the  “Order Appointing Probate Conservator” [pdf] form has been submitted to the court.

It indicates that:

➲ ayres is “unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter” and that he “has dementia as defined in Probate Code section 2356.5”

➲ No bond is required.

➲ A “nonappearance” hearing is set for August 31, 2012, at which point paperwork will be provided for the “Level of Care Determination General Plan” and a “Determination of Conservatee’s Appropriate Level of Care.”

Frankly, all of this is specious, as it should be clear to ALL that ayres is not, in fact demented, and is simply using the legal system just as he uses everyone around him, and his dementia gambit is paying off, in spite of the fact that EVERYONE knows that ayres is competent including the prosecution, the judges, and the attorney for the the child molester.

william hamilton ayres, the former president of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (an organization which is obviously a complete sham) was tried on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys. The trial ended in mistrial due to a hung jury (ONE juror refused to find guilty on any charge.) 

ayres molested many young boys over the course of his career, in which he alleges to have been a psychiatrist. He has been accused of using that practice to gain easy access to young boys from both his private practice, and from the juvenile justice system. ayres was contracted to evaluate young children sent to him by judges in the juvenile system: ayres was the LOW BIDDER on these contracts according to one of the judges in the juvenile system, ensuring the coward a steady stream of boys who were not likely to be believed if they DID ever decide to report. 


  1. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, the District Attorney's office there has been successful in moving the Sandusky case along at lightning speed.

    Sandusky was arrested in November. Seven months later, the jury has been chosen and the trial will commence ASAP.

    For shame, San Mateo District Attorney's office for dragging its feet on the Ayres case.

  2. I am a 34 yo female. Ayres was my therapist from about the ages of 13-15 (during the years he was doing these disgusting things). He charged my Father $130/hr for his services at his San Mateo office and even visited me once in Jeuvenile Hall at the request of my Grandmother. All these years I just thought he was the biggest waste of time and money..little did I know all the disgusting things he had been doing to little boys. It is very very sad and I am very greatful that nothing happened to me. It makes me angry to know that he took advantage of boys who already had serious issues..what a sick jerk. I'm so sorry to all the victims of this POS and I hope some how they can at some point deal with their pain and not let it continue to ruin there lives. I can't imagine what they must have gone through and still go through.
