Hung jury yesterday in the Ayres case. The DA is trying to decide whether to retry the case. Many of the jurors looked angry and were crying.www.williamayreswatch.blogspot.com
received an email from the foreman on the case, telling us how sorry he was that he couldn't give the victims justice:
Here's the email:
Good evening. It is a sad night.
I was the foreman of this jury.
I am looking for the best outlet to express my sincerest thanks and admiration for the victims who stepped forward in this trial. I pray that they read this post.
The courage you showed in reliving the unthinkable wrongs committed against you will guide me for the rest of my life. I offer my deepest apologies that I could not give you closure.
Thank you also for the bravery shown by the parents who took the stand. I am sorry for not giving you the verdict you deserve. As a father myself, I can't imagine the pain you have endured. Your strength will inspire us all.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers tonight.
