Child Molester william ayres Moves Prisons

Conditions at Deuel as of Aug 2013
PRISON UPDATE: Child molester william hamilton ayres has recently been moved to a new prison location: Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy, California. (According to the California inmate locator service.)

Deuel is listed as housing for general population, and houses level 1 and level 3 prisoners. Level 1 is "dorms" with no perimeter. Level 3 is fairly high security, fenced perimeter, armed guards, etc...

Deuel also operates a dairy facility with ~1400 head of cattle. Lovely smell in the heat of the day!

It is said that processing a new prisoner takes some number of weeks, as they look at criminal record, health, social history, etc before they determine the prisoner's permanent (usually) location. Deuel is one of the several Reception facilities in California. So it is possible that processing was completed at San Quentin, and this is his ultimate location, and it's also possible that he is at Deuel to be processed.Given the length of time since sentencing, I'd guess that he's still being processed, but that's really just a stab in the dark.

COURT UPDATE: As of today, September 11, 2013 there are no scheduled hearings (public hearings)  for appeals or restitution, or anything else. I usually post the date last checked on our "ayres' Court Dates" tab on top of the page.

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. After years of  playing demented for the courts, ayres plead "No Contest" and was found guilty of all charges against him on May 16, 2013. ayres was sentenced to 8 years in prison on August 26, 2013. 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 BlinderEtta BryantMel BlausteinHarry CorenTom CieslaRobert KimmichLarry LurieMaria LymberisRichard ShadoanCaptane Thomson, and Harold Wallach.


  1. Wikipedia entry on Deuel:

    "As a result of DVI's primary function as a reception center, in which a large number of felons of different propensities for violence, disciplinary and security issues pass through before being classified and transferred to other facilities, DVI has a long-standing reputation for being violent and dangerous. The facility used to be referred to as "gladiator school" by inmates and staff, because the DVI was widely known for the fights and homicides that took place within the prison walls.

    As recently as June 2010, an inmate murder in the facility has been recorded."

    1. If you spend your whole adult live sewing evil, eventually Evil will come and seek you out for payment.

      Often times, it seems that Evil formulates nefariously ironic means to collect.

      I feel sad for those victims of ayres from the juvenile system who still call "home" the places that ayres will now be invading with his foul presence.

  2. Tsk. The house move like a downgrade for the child molester. San Quentin receives more stars (4.2 stars averaged from six reviews) via its Google Maps customer reviews than Deuel Vocational Institution (2.7 averaged from 8).

    The move was apparently expected by at least one person who reads the San Francisco Chronicle. In response to an article (Victims denounce psychiatrist who molested them, by Henry K. Lee, published Monday, August 26, 2013), the morning thereafter someone commented that, "[The child molester] is going to San Quentin first." How did the person know about that? I'm curious!

    1. The house SOUNDS move like a downgrade . . .


    2. I've heard a few conflicting statements about this. When a prisoner enters the system, they have to be evaluated, as mentioned in the post. There are several prisons that do this "placement" evaluation.

      Several people have commented that most or ALL prisoners entering the system who were convicted in this area go through San Quentin first.

      I know of at least two people who were from the area, and who did NOT go to The Q first.

      So I'm not sure that I agree that the system ALWAYS shuffles people from the area through there first.

      Either way, we don't know if Deuel is his final destination, or just a step on the way.

      Either way, Deuel sounds like a shitty place; the longer he's there the better, as long as he's not in the "country club" part of the prison.

  3. San Mateo County used to send all of their new prisoners to San Quentin for processing but now they go on to Deuel in Tracy and then on to whatever prison they're assigned to. There is a brand new hospital that has been built within the walls of San Quentin and that is where they probably put Ayres when he was at San Quentin so he would be safe and no one would get to him.

  4. Hey!! Remember Cardell Demond Brown, the "counselor" hired by the San Mateo probation office to work in a group home for juvenile offenders but who then ended up raping the boys?

    Wagstaffe hid this case from the press because he didn't want the County to get sued. It was the attorney for the boys who contacted the press. Wagstaffe gave some flimsy excuse to Mike Manekin at the County Times as to why he didn't put the Brown case on his daily press briefings. Case was a plea deal, prosecutor was Melissa Mckowan. In 2007, Brown got ONLY FOUR YEARS in San Quentin. And he's already out!!

    From the County Times, December 2007: Counselor convicted of molestation, county sued

    A 41-year-old employee at a group home for adolescent boys in San Mateo was convicted in August of felony charges relating to the abuse of four juvenile offenders under the care of the county. But the conviction of Cardell Demond Brown and his four-year sentence to San Quentin State Prison was never revealed to the media by the district attorney's office, and the story didn't make headlines until an attorney representing three of his victims filed a lawsuit this month in San Mateo County Superior Court.

    Brown subjected at least three of the county's wards to anal intercourse, oral copulation, masturbation and other acts of sexual abuse while serving as a youth counselor at Project 90, a San Mateo-based human services nonprofit that the county contracted with to provide rehabilitation services for juvenile offenders, according to a lawsuit filed this month in San Mateo Superior Court.

    The lawsuit, which cites the county and Project 90 for negligence, raises questions about the county's ability to care for minors under its guardianship.


    Well, Mr. Brown has already been released from San Quentin!!

  5. Cardell Brown's now living in the midwest.

  6. Looks like an African 419 scam spam message has infected the calendar (see September 11) on this site. Is the message supposed to be there? Seems to have nothing to do with the child molester.

  7. DA Steve Wagstaffe tells KCBS an astonishing lie that his office always complies with Marsy's Law:

    In an astonishing article today, San Mateo DA Steve Wagstaffe tells KCBS that his office is really on top of things when it comes to honoring crime victims and Marsy's Law. Tell that to the family who sued his office and prosecutor Melissa Mckowan in a highly publicized molestation case for violating their Marsy's Law rights in 2010.

    Tell that to two parents of Ayres victims whose rights were violated. In 2009, the attorney for a family of a victim wrote to Mckowan, asking that they be notified of each and every hearing in the Ayres case. They were never contacted. And the prosecutor never contacted an in-statute Ayres victim or his mother, in the past four years about the case and never told them he wouldn't be testifying again.

    To that end, they are astonished that Wagstaffe would claim the following to KCBS today:

    Web Link

    In response to this special series, San Francisco's presiding judge and the state's chief justice are both recommending reforms. KCBS has also learned that one Bay Area prosecutor, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, is taking it even one step further – training his attorneys to observe a victim's Marsy's rights even if the victim doesn't ask for them to be honored.

    KCBS Cover Story Series: Marsy's Law
    "We try to comply with it in every case that we can, whether or not there's a request," he explained. "It does not take a request for us to do it, let's try and make it happen in every case."

    According to Wagstaffe, so few victims invoke their rights under Marsy's Law that he wants the attorneys in his office to act as if those rights are automatic, if not outright mandatory.

  8. Here's the link to shyster Wagstaffe's lies:

  9. Just posted over at the Atherton Almanac: " Bar Warns Wagstaffe To Cut Out The Misconduct"

    The Almanac has been forwarded documentary evidence establishing that San Mateo D.A. Steve Wagstaffe received a LETTER OF WARNING from the California State Bar in 2010.


    The Bar disciplined Wagstaffe with this warning based on a complaint it received about prosecutorial misconduct.

    This revelation raises some important questions:

    1. Why hasn't Wagstaffe disclosed to the public that he received such an extraordinary disciplinary warning? I have to believe the public has a right to know.

    2. When is the Bar going to move from warnings to actual disbarment? Just how many warnings and complaints have to be issued?

    3. Are the resident taxpayers Wagstaffe prosecutes for misconduct entitled to a warning also? Hardly. Like our congress exempting itself from ObamaCare, apparently Wagstaffe fancies himself as above the law.

    Is this true Alamanac? If so, please print/post it. The citizens of this county deserve to hear what a corrupt man we have in the most powerfull law enforcement position in the county.

    If true, it doesn't surprise me in the least.

    The Bar needs to be advised ASAP that Wagstaffe lied to KCBS on October 8, 2013 when he said that his office sends out advance notice to crime victims about Marsy's Law. He neglected to mention that the victims of Dr. Ayres and their families sent numerous complaints to the San Mateo Board of Supervisors in April of this year about violations of Marsy's Law by prosecutor Mckowan on that case and that Mckowan has not bothered to contact an in-statute Ayres victim or his mother since July 2009 - a complete violation of Marsy's Law. The Board of Supervisors confronted Wagstaffe about the prosecutor's violation in a closed meeting.

    To Menlo Voter:

    Yes, it's true. A copy of the official letter from the California Bar about Wagstaffe has been sent to the Almanac reporters as of today.

    Anyone else experience Wagstaffe lying to the press about their case? If so, we would like to hear from you here.

  10. it seems that he belongs to the school of "If you say something enough times, it must be the truth, right?" What a fool.

  11. A victim of Dr. William Ayres who had submitted a complaint to the California Bar concerning misconduct by the prosecutor on the Ayres case, Melissa Mckowan, received a reply today stating that his "complaint expresses legitimate concerns." However, the Bar told him that the matters he complained about were "within the prosecutorial discretion of the District Attorney."

    This victim has already tried to complain to Wagstaffe about Mckowan.

    He never received a response.

    Not surprising- in a 2010 molestation case Wagstaffe actually made a series of false statements to the press in an effort to cover for Mckowan. Wagstaffe never responded to the family who complained in that case, either.

  12. In 2010, a California inmate complained that that San Mateo DA Wagstaffe had lied about the facts of his case to the press.

    The Bar agreed with the inmate. The Bar stated in a letter to the inmate that they were going to send a "warning letter" to Wagstaffe and that it would be "kept in our file and may be taken under consideration in the event the State Bar receives additional complaints against Wagstaffe."

    Since then, the Bar has indeed received numerous complaints about Wagstaffe pertaining to false statements he has made in cases.

    If you have any evidence of Wagstaffe lying to either yourself or to the press, you need to add to the evergrowing file the Bar has on Wagstaffe.

  13. I've noticed several of the comments (8) have been deleted. I hope this doesn't mean that the site is being pressured in any way.

  14. No, the site is not being pressured.

    On the other hand, we are keeping our cards close to our vest so as not to tip our hand.

  15. Ayres has just been transferred to the Stockton prison medical facility. Spanking new. What BS. Probably the DA made this agreement with the faker Ayres before he pleaded no contest:

  16. The institution is an odd hybrid between a traditional prison and modern hospital.

    A lethal electric fence topped with concertina wire and gun towers surrounds a central medical and mental health facility that includes a library and education center.

    Inmate patients can watch television while they receive hours of kidney dialysis treatment or while sitting in plastic chairs that are bolted to the floor. Skylights provide natural light at nurses' stations and a neighboring desk reserved for prison guards.

    Cells are built with room for hospital beds, and have oxygen and vacuum hookups along with nurses' call buttons. But the toilets and sinks are standard stainless-steel prison units, and the fixtures are designed to deter suicides.

  17. Why didn't uber-millionaire Silicon Valley executive Luke Lonergan have to register as a sex offender? Why one set of rules for the poor and one for the rich in San Mateo County?
