According to the San Mateo Daily Journal (pdf), ayres is now attempting to withdraw his plea (as was indicated on the 7th), claiming that now he Really, really, really, REALLY has dementia.
The judge set aside time on Monday and (I think) Tuesday for sentencing and anything from McDougall, and there are NO hearings scheduled between now and Monday, so no change to schedule. If we hear otherwise, we'll update.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that victim statements will take place on Monday August 26th, as scheduled. It is possible that Shyster McDougall's motion will be heard on Monday as well. Sentencing proceedings will be decided based on outcome of the motion, but victim statements will be definitely be heard.
