It makes no sense whatseover that DA Wagstaffe's office would recuse itself from the Forrest case because of a working relationship, and yet not recuse itself from the Ayres case. A number of prosecutors in the DA's office hired Ayres to evaluate boys over the years.

I don't know what the Postal Service inspectors have to do with child porn on a computer (unless the porn was sent thru the mail via a CD or DVD).

10 months seems like a pretty damn light sentence for such a disgusting crime.

Bob: The child porn was sent through the mail. Then they found more than 400 images on both his home and work computers.
