Criminal defense shyster McDougall has filed some motions related to the criminal trial, and there will be an additional hearing on April 18th, 2013 at 8:30am. We'll update if and when we learn more.
On another note: In my last brief post on news that the ayres prosecutor has been sanctioned, there are many fairly comprehensive comments of interest posted by blog followers, and I thought it might be a good idea to move them up to the top, as many readers don't seem to look at comments to the posts.
I'd like to point out the tragic irony that the defense shyster is now (claiming) to desire a change of venue in the case; the very argument that more than a few victims and supporters of the victims have been pondering for some time. Make no mistake though... The shyster does not desire a change of venue, the shyster desires only the delay related to the hearings.
Q: What do have when a lawyer is buried up to his neck in cement?
A: Not enough cement.
Here are the comments of note posted recently. If you've read them already, I have not added any, if you have not read them, they are definitely worth a read:
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.
