It's about time, the 8 year max sentence was part of the plea deal. We San Mateo County residents can learn from this and we can do better at protecting the children in our County.
Get involved, lets investigate how this was allowed to happen so many years after being reported by so many boys, parents, and mandated reporters.
I'm glad the victims and family members were finally able to speak to William H. Ayres.

Whoever attended the hearing yesterday got it wrong. Not only did Ayres flinch, but he pitched a fit when four guards tried to wheel him away. He was very agitated and raised his voice.
I thought it was interesting that Ayres' wife talked about Ayres working with the DA's office on cases. She said that she thought the DA pursued the case against her husband because the DA was mad that sometimes he recommended treatment instead of incarceration.

I was in the courtroom, and Ayres in many instances glared fiercely at whoever was speaking, in particular the mother of a victim who died many years ago.
Also, victim Thomas C is a psychologist, not a psychiatrist
