Jurors in the first trial of William Ayres, the former San Mateo psychiatrist accused of molesting seven young patients, will not have their identities released, a judge ruled this week.
A jury deadlocked in his first trial; he is being retried.
Ayres’ lawyers had requested the disclosure. The court offered the defense the opportunity to submit a questionnaire to the jurors, which they can choose to fill out if they wish.
The second jury trial is set for April 12.
