Delay granted in suppression hearing

A hearing over a motion to suppress evidence in the case of former child psychiatrist and accused serial molester William Ayres was pushed back Tuesday because of Deputy District Attorney Melissa McKowan’s scheduling conflict.

In the delayed hearing, defense attorneys will argue to throw out evidence coming from the police seizure of more than 600 patient files. Defense attorney Doron Weinberg said he is prepared to present a strong argument at the new hearing date, May 23.

San Mateo police arrested Ayres in April 2007 after a four-year investigation. The charges against him involve seven former patients between 1991-96.

His trial is set for June 23.
