What a travesty! While I wholeheartedly support our trial by jury system I also understand it's failings. This is another example. frown

Good news! The jury was leaning towards conviction on all counts. 11-1 on six of the counts. The holdout was a young woman juror who recently graduated from law school.

The DA's office will retry the case. As Ayres has no money, he could make a plea deal.

This is much better news than we thought yesterday.

There are also at least four civil molestation suits by victims that are currently in the works.

Dr. Ayres trained in child psychiatry at a place for troubled kids in Boston called Judge Baker Guidance Center from 1959-63. Many believe that he got his start molesting boys there as well.

There was another child psychiatrist who arrived at Judge Baker the same year Ayres left named Dr. Donald Lee Rife. The Yale and Harvard educated Rife went on to molest adolescent boys in Mass, Vermont and Florida. His license was finally revoked in the 1990s in Florida after he was caught molesting a seven year old boy.

Judge Baker Center has also been the training ground for child psychiatrists who have gone on to molest young girls, such as Dr. Edward Daniels, who trained with Ayres.

That said, there have been many excellent child psychiatrists who worked at Judge Baker.

One wonders if Judge Baker staff ever got any complaints about Ayres with boys?

Victoria Balfour, the journalist who blew the whistle on Dr. Ayres, will receive the Award for Excellence in the Media from the Leadership Council on Child Abuse $ Interpersonal Violence at their international conference in San Diego in September.

Balfour is being recognized for her efforts to expose the allegations against William Ayres which ultimately led to his prosecution.

A correspondent for the William Ayres Watch went to Judge Baker Children's Center, the place in Boston for troubled kids where Ayres trained back in the 1960s. For four decades Ayres has been telling everyone that he was trained to give physicals to kids during therapy - including genital exams- at Judge Baker.

The Chief Operating Officer at Judge Baker said today that Judge Baker does not and has never trained any psychiatrist to touch kids during therapy.

Thanks for keeping us updated on this, Pluck. It's fascinating to watch the wheels of justice turn in this case.

The folks over at www.williamayreswatch.blogspot.com today tracked down even more therapists who trained with Ayres back in the 1960s. They told the blog that Ayres is not telling the truth when he says he was "trained" to do physicals on kids in therapy. This was the linchpin of his defense. With so many people willing to testify that this is a lie,many believe he's going to be in a ton of trouble during his next trial.
