|San Mateo County IT Staff|
According to San Mateo County DA Wagstaffe, he has tried to be proactive in following Marsy's Law regarding notifying victims of such hearings (see KCBS Story (pdf)) in light of recent violations of California's "Crime Victims Bill of Rights." He says that he has instructed his staff as a matter of "office policy" to inform victims of such hearings in all cases.
According to Almanacnews.com (pdf) writer D Boyce, Wagstaffe says that he "was able to look into the issue of notification of the victims prior to the medical parole hearing for William Ayres." but that unfortunately when he asked a detective via email to notify victims, the message "was somehow thrown into the police agency blocked emails"
So yet again, we see that DA Wagstaffe's valiant fight against evil is stymied by San Mateo County's UTTERLY INCOMPETENT Information Technology staff. Here we are, in the HEART of Silicon Valley, and we can't even find decent IT staff to configure email servers such that intra-department county email actually makes it all the way to the intended in-box. For Shame -- Every one of these incompetent computer folks should be terminated post-haste! </sarcasm>
Let me just see if I have this right, Mr. Wagstaffe:
Somehow, IT has set up blocking filters on the Police Department's email servers, such that email from THE FUCKING DISTRICT ATTORNEY is not allowed through to the Detectives, AND nobody has noticed it until just now... Is that what you're saying, Mr. DA?
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 no longer 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.
