Very astute comment from a reader at the San Francisco Chronicle on the San Mateo DA's prolonged and deliberately botched performance on the case:


The San Mateo county prosecutor's office has a vested interest in losing this case. They and the Judicial branch in SM County sent thousands of his victims to him as he was the county contracted provider for juvenile psyche evals.

He used abuse of this power to intimidate many of his victims into silence as he had the power to decide if they got to go home or to a group home or jail.

If the man is convicted it will increase the financial penalty the County must pay in the civil cases. There is some evidence the County was well aware of his behavior for years before he retired. There are many cases, reports of his abuse that are outside the criminal statute prior to 1990.

Also, Deep Sounding, the Ayres victim who runs the Ayres blog, agrees with this assessment as to why the San Mateo DA has deliberately dragged its feet, and done subpar work on the case and why they don't want a conviction:

. Also many juvenile cases for which punitive measures were based on evaluation by the child molester will need judicial review and potential recompense. Very costly even if there are NO lawsuits.
.
Also it would be embarrassing to local politicians like Rich Gordon and Jim Fox, as well as local judges, social workers and prominent area physicians who long ago had established associations with the molester. They now find themselves in the same position that many of the Penn State officials found themselves in... Trying to decide between protecting reputation and protecting children, and choosing poor
ly.





For those who are following the Ayres saga, I strongly recommend that you check in to the Ayres blog. www.williamayreswatch.blogspot.com

The families of the victims who pooled their money and hired a PT to tail Ayres last year in a desperate last ditch effort to prove that Ayres was competent to stand trial, are feeling very vindicated by the doctors' ruling that Ayres is competent to stand trial.

The victims and their families are well aware that the San Mateo DA will deliberately try to drag this case out ( while telling the public they want to try Ayres) so as not to try the case.

The families of the victims are actively working to get justice. They know they won't get it from the San Mateo DA, but they will get it.

A news organization out in California has posted a poll, asking readers to vote as to
whether Ayres should be retried: http://pacifica.patch.com/articles/poll-...comment_4154225

Last year, San Mateo prosecutor Melissa Mckowan insisted to all of the Ayres victims that Ayres was not competent to stand trial and never would be. The San Mateo DA's office ignored tips from Ayres' medical colleagues that he had been seen around San Francisco, acting competent. San Mateo DA Steve Wagstaffe was dismissive of the surveillance video made by a private investigator hired by the families of victims, that showed Ayres was competent to stand trial, saying that it 'wasn't helpful to Ayres' mental competency that Ayres was using a walker."

Now comes word from the Mercury News that even the custodial staff there could tell Ayres was competent. How come the DA's office didn't want to believe it? What's their agenda here?

What is the real reason didn't the San Mateo DA want to retry Ayres? Why five and a half years later, is there still no conviction? Is it because DA Wagstaffe's office hired Ayres themselves to evaluate boys, and many of them were molested?

Read Wagstaffe's ludicrous reasons to a mother of a victim last summer as to why he was not retrying Ayres for mental competency:

Here's the front page story from the San Francisco Examiner last September that talks about how the parents had evidence that Ayres was competent but were ignored and shut down by the DA and told that Ayres was not competent to stand trial. And now even the JANITORS at Napa can tell that Ayres is competent. Why couldn't the DA?

Kudos to San Francisco Examiner Mike Aldax for being the only reporter with balls to believe the parents last September and doing a front page story.

What thinking is this. Ayres needs 30 days to prepare for being in treatment for his dementia? If he is incompetent, what preparations can he make that others wouldn't be doing for him anyway? If he is incompetent to stand trial then he is not competent to handle his own affairs.

The bigger picture is this: the San Mateo District Attorney's office, as well as San Mateo courts, probation, Children's Services and the San Mateo Private Defenders ALL hired Ayres to evaluate boys for 40 years. Some of these juveniles were raped. Ayres threatened them," If you don't let me do this to you, then you are going to California Youth Authority."

No one, including the San Mateo Private Defenders which paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to Ayres, wants to go back and investigate how many juveniles Ayres molested. Many of these men went on to lives of crime and are serving life sentence in prison. Ayres set them on the path.

If the San Mateo DA truly wanted to convict Ayres, they would have put their top prosecutor on the case, instead of a rookie who was a bartender in Alaska before getting her law degree in her thirties.

There are now three complaints before the California Bar concerning this prosecutor- for the Ayres case and two other molestation cases.

A San Mateo Supervisor has gone to the DA of San Mateo and asked him to do something about the prosecutor. But the DA won't fire her.

The kicker is that last summer, the victims of Ayres received tips from medical colleagues of Ayres that he was hanging around San Francisco, acting totally competent. The police ignored their tips and the prosecutor kept insisting Ayres was incompetent.

That's why the victims hired a private investigator to tail Ayres. The team of investigators found Ayres to be competent.

Now even the JANITORS at Napa State Hospital say they could tell Ayres was competent.

The key question is: why was the prosecutor the only one who refused to believe Ayres was competent? What was her agenda? Why did her boss, San Mateo DA Steve Wagstaffe tell the mother of a victim that basically they couldn't retry Ayres because he was using a walker?

The FBI is investigating DA Wagstaffe for corruption and there are strong signs that the Ayres case is all tied in to this. As the DA hired Ayres for decades, it would make sense that they would drag this case for fear of huge lawsuits against the County.

Recommended reading: despite the fact that Ayres' colleagues told victims Ayres wa competent; despite the fact that a team of private investigators hired by the victims proved Ayres to be competent, the DA 's office insisted he wasn't.

Please read the account of the bizarre and contradictory actions by the prosecutor on the Ayres case and San Mateo District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe a year ago on the status of Ayres' mental competency:

Napa State hospital reports that Ayres has been trying to "groom" a disabled man while he has been housed at the hospital. Bear in mind that when Ayres was in his medical residency at Yale he also worked with disabled men.

http://www.mercurynews.com/san-mateo-cou...y-ayres-witness

The nursing supervisor who oversaw Ayres' unit was among five other people who testified Tuesday. The supervisor, Sybil James, told the court that on more than one occasion Ayres had to be removed from the company of another inmate out of concerns he might be "grooming" him, a term used for the process by which sexual offenders prepare for a potential victim for abuse.

James said she and other staffers noticed Ayres spending time alone with the man, who is developmentally disabled. The man had previously been involved in an undescribed incident with another man that resulted in the filing of a police report. The developmentally disabled man was eventually moved to a different unit of the hospital for his safety.
