"Court in Session... A Little Early: Time of Ayres' retrial hearing is suspicious"
The article, a brief "Insider" blurb that got top billing on the paper calls attention to an important issue that I had originally missed. When I first reported on the August 22 hearing, I did not notice the TIME that I got reports from people at the hearing. I heard from them at about 9:10am. It was actually finished BEFORE the scheduled 9am start time.
Here are some snippets from the San Mateo County Times Article:
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said the hearing in San Mateo County Superior Court Judge John Grandsaert's courtroom would begin at 9 a.m. Grandsaert himself listed the time of the hearing as 9.
So the Insider, and Supervisor Dave Pine, were a bit surprised to learn, when they arrived at 9, that the hearing was already over. It had begun at 8:45
The reporter in the Times goes on to call the behavior fishy, talks about Wagstaffe's excuse, and sarcastically chides Judge Grandsaert's questionable decision.
Go on over to the San Mateo County Times article (pdf) to read about it. Note that the online version has changed the headline to the somewhat less confrontational: "The Insider: Ayres hearing time travels"
Yet more coordinated, suspicious behavior by the molester, the DA, and the Judiciary. It floors me that many don't see the collusion.
