Competency Trial: COMPETENT!

In Court: Wednesday October 31, 2012:

ayres was found COMPETENT to defend himself at trial. The judge found that the testimony of Doctor Good, Warnick, and  McIlnay to each be sufficient in and of themselves to find ayres competent.

Judge Grandsaert noted that he is concerned about the defendant's likelyhood to avoid return to court. He noted that ayres made suicide threats and statements to McIlnay that he'd like to be released so that he can run away with his wife and hide.

Bail is set at $900,000.00. McDougall requested a followup bail hearing TBD.

Criminal proceedings reinstated, and trial is (currently) set for 8:45 AM on March 11, 2013.

More to follow... give me a few hours....

william hamilton ayres was arrested on April 5, 2007 on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys while he was alleging to provide psychiatric care to private patients as well as referrals for evaluation from the juvenile court system in San Mateo County. ayres has been delaying his way through the system free from custody until this latest gambit to skirt prosecution by playing demented for the courts. ayres is currently under the conservatorship of his daughter Barbara Ayres of Sacramento, CA

ayres has had significant interaction over the years with local politicians on boards like the "Children and Families First Commission,"  including the DA who was serving when prosecution began Jim Fox and Assemblyman Rich Gordon. In fact, Gordon nominated ayres for a lifetime achievement award for his "Tireless effort to improve the lives of children." ayres has also been vocally supported during his criminal trial by local head-shrinkers like Bart Blinder, Etta Bryant, Mel Blaustein, Harry Coren, Tom Ciesla, Robert Kimmich, Larry Lurie, Maria Lymberis, Richard Shadoan, Captane Thomson, and Harold Wallach.


  1. This could all have been avoided a year ago if there had been a competent DA to handle this . But they shut down the victims and their parents last summer and refused to deal with tips that Ayres was competent.

    Because of Wsgstaffes bad and stubborn call last year about competency, his Error has been very
    costly to tax payer.

    Why did prosecutor Mckowan and Wagstaffe shut down the victims last year? Why could everyone
    else see Ayres was competent but the DA did not How much h is the DAs mistake about his
    competency costing tax payers?

    What a bunch of incompetent and corrupt bunglers.

    Please do the victims a favor and this time snd get competent prosecution.

  2. Whatever else this has accomplished, this hearing has exposed Ayres as being a lamp post clinging, pencil breaking infant -- and a dangerous pedophile who is still on the make

  3. I can only see that Wagstaffe is and was dragging his feet because there will be civil suits galore if Ayres is found guilty. CYA all the time, imo.

  4. March 11, 2013 Sure seems a long way into the future to schedule a trial that all parties would need minimal time to prepare for.

    1. The reason for the delay is that McDougall is on trial until mid December of this year, and he thinks he needs 90 days to prep for the trial, which he estimates will take 6 to 9 weeks.

      (I've tacked this onto the new full detail post, just added)
