Top California Child Psychologist Sentenced to 8 Years After Abuse of Young Boys

Former president of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, William Ayres, was convicted on sexually abusing a number of young boys, ages 9 to 13, who came to him as patients. Ayres was publicly credited with 20 different counts of molestation, but only came forward on four of the counts after he plea bargained. He was finally sentenced to 8 years in prison after years of avoiding trials.
