REMINDER: Criminal Hearing TODAY
April 18, 2013 8:30 am
Southern Branch, Hall of Justice and Records, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
UPDATE: State Bar motion to quash McDougall's subpoena for information about the Bar complaint and discipline against prosecutor McKowan has been granted. McDougall does not get court mandated access to the complaint information (at this time).
The hearing is for "Motions" prior to the currently re-scheduled re-trial of william hamilton ayres on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys while he was allegedly providing psychiatric care. The re-trial was re-opened after Napa State Hospital told the San Mateo County court that ayres was NOT suffering dementia as the prosecution had conceded, but had in fact been malingering -- intentionally feigning mental illness to avoid prosecution -- as all of the rest of us kept saying.
We're not sure what the "motions" for tomorrow's hearing entail, as the submissions from attorneys have been held in judge's chambers, and therefore unavailable for review prior to the hearing. It's likely that they are all Shyster McDougall's motions related to all of the unfinished business when the re-trial was re-re-delayed last time.
Indication seems to be that the judge is weary of further delays, but that's been the claim for quite some time.
If you're planning to attend the hearing: SHOW UP EARLY. The DA has been known to start early in order to avoid making the proceedings public.

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.
