Frontera is not the same doctor as the one who worked at Judge Baker in Boston 1949.

Frontera is only 48 years old. The other doctor who molested the boy in Boston would have been 106 years old.

What is WRONG with the doctors in California? There are two new cases of doctors molesting boys in the Bay Area- where Dr. Ayres also practiced.

UC Berkeley doctor charged with molesting male patients

OAKLAND -- A doctor who worked at UC Berkeley's health center for more than two decades has been charged with sexually assaulting at least six male patients during examinations and university officials believe more victims could come forward.
Dr. Robert Kevess, 52, of Oakland, was charged late Wednes-day with 19 felony counts, including eight counts of sexual exploitation of multiple patients, seven counts of sexual battery with false professional purpose and four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object. Prosecutors say the offenses occurred between March 2006 and this March.
Kevess confirmed the allegations of sexual misconduct to police officers investigating the case, saying he touched intimate parts of patients and penetrated them with objects, including his fingers, under the guise of performing medical procedures, court records state.
Also, pediatrician Dr. Patrick Clyne was fired from his job after boys came forward to say he had molested them.

The guy is definitely disturbed. He has harmed a lot of people. I don't think killing him would be helpful. It would be interesting to figure him out (long-term therapy along with incarceration?) so we can understand this kind of personality and learn to recognize it and deal with it.

Here's a civil trial that's going on against St. Francis Hospital in Connecticut for failing to protect victims of pedophile doctor George Reardon. They moved fast on this one- even though Reardon is dead. Just goes to show how incompetent the San Mateo DA's office is when it comes to getting a second trial underway in the Ayres case. (But then- every DA's office seems to be more competent than San Mateo's.)

The first trial concerning Dr. George Reardon is underway:

1st trial starts in Conn. doctor sex-abuse case
April 5, 2011

"A man testified Tuesday that a late Connecticut doctor suspected of molesting scores of children performed a sex act on him in the late 1960s while he and his three brothers were taking part in what was supposed to be a human growth study. The man, using the pseudonym William Roe, was a witness in a Waterbury Superior Court trial on the claims by another alleged victim of Dr. George Reardon, who died in 1998. The civil case is the first to reach trial among about 90 people who are suing St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center of Hartford, claiming hospital officials failed to prevent the abuse. The hospital's lawyers say hospital officials didn't know about the abuse...."


"....Roe testified that Reardon asked his mother for permission to include him and his three brothers in the growth study after one brother had his tonsils removed at St. Francis in 1967. Roe said he and his brothers saw Reardon individually at the hospital for the study. When it was his turn, Roe said, he undressed and Reardon measured his genitals. He said Reardon then told him he needed to stimulate him, and then proceeded to touch his genitals to the point of ejaculation. Roe said he was 9 or 10 years old at the time...."

Possibly the only way we're going to get peoples' attention on some of these things is by bringing civil suits.

What is amazing is the capacity of these doctors to cloak their activities as normal scientific inquiry. If the hospital had doctors doing this type of examinations and studies, they should be paying out, just like the priests and boy scout leaders. It is one thing to slip with a scalpel or scribble a pre>

The Courage to change the things I can,

ayres' competency trial is slated to start today. It was supposed to be 9am Pacific Time, but has been continued until 2pm Pacific Time today. (June 6, 2011)

I guess I'm just expecting more delays. This is the third attempt to get the competency trial going, so that they can finally get around (if ever) to his re-trial for the molestation charges.

In the seventh day of the trial to determine Ayres' mental competency, Dr. Paul Good testifies that Ayres is competent to stand trial. Testimony yesterday provides behind the scenes glimpse into Ayres' twisted mind. Apparently his lawyer for the first trial, Doron Weinberg, wanted him to enter a guilty plea after the mistrial, but Ayres refused, saying he was "trained" to do physical exams to boys in therapy. (Too bad the prosecution never bothered to investigate this flat-out lie for the first trial.)

The Ayres blog has a very good writeup on yesterday's testimony for day seven in the mental competency trial. Ayres even complained about the Ayres blog and victims' advocate Victoria Balfour who he said was "out to get him" and Dr. Lynn Ponton, a doctor who filed a complaint to the California Medical Board on behalf of a victim in 2005.

Story in the San Jose Mercury News as well:

Prosecution and defense have rested their cases in the Ayres mental competency trial. Judge is reading instructions now. As always, the best coverage is over at

A mistrial has been declared in the Ayres mental competency trial. Jury couldn't agree on whether he was competent.

The victims of Ayres and their families are furious with the San Mateo District Attorney's office for this mistrial.

Parents who attended this competency trial report that Ayres' lawyer Jonathan McDougall was better prepared; had better witnesses (seven of them) and outsmarted prosecutor Melissa Mckowan. Reports are that she was not prepared, had only two witnesses (one of whom was brought in at the last minute and was very weak) and often fumbled.

Meanwhile around the country, dozens of doctors who were arrested for molesting children AFTER Ayres was arrested in 2007 have long since been tried and sentenced to prison. In one case in Ohio in 2009, identical twin pediatricians Dr. Scott and Dr. Mark Blankenburg were convicted of 79 child counts of child molestation, possession of child pornography and bribery just NINE months after they were arrested.

The first criminal trial for Ayres was supposed to be a slam dunk, according to experts, but the DA messed that up too by never bothering to check Ayres' bogus assertions that he was trained to give genital exams to boys in therapy in Boston.

Ayres was arrested in April, 2007 and is still free. This is a joke and a terrible travesty.
