Hmmm....Well, I was abused by a psychologist, but I wasn't a patient of his. I still feel weird when thinking about that.

I've heard some latest news that he's trying to get the search warrent voided because they were his patients. He's claiming patient client privilege. His attorney stated that the police wouldn't have known who to talk to if they hadn't gotten the patient files. That is so much crap.

I'm in the Bay Area during the week and I'm following this one. It sickens me.

The police had victims going back from 1966 to 1985 before they decided to get the search warrant. That's a span of almost 20 years .The victim from 1985 actually went to the police twenty years ago and said Ayres molested him. The cops botched that case. We all know that predators do not stop, and when the cops got his patient files ni 2006, the California Medical Board, which had received numerous complaints from victims that Ayres had molested him, asked him to surrender his license, and he refused. In fact, he was trying to renew his license. What were the cops supposed to do when they had all these victims coming to them ? Some died in car and motorcycle crashes and their parents wonder if the molestation had something to do with it.
