    OK here's just an OMG moment - Levin used to be one of my Dr's in my territory when I worked for a clinical laboratory around 1993 and 1994. I had moved to Nashville by the time his legal troubles went down. I did hear through the grapevine that he was busted for child porn and drugging his "girlfriend" and that his ex wife accused him of molesting the sons...

    I can verify this mods if necessary. He was very, very perverted - always offering free gynecology exams when we came in (myself as field service supervisor, my best friend was the sales rep. and our other friend was the sales manager - we were all female). My last trip to his office was on his birthday when his office staff hired Miss Nude America to entertain him in his office. We were invited for his birthday but were a little shocked at this. The office doors were locked and it became very graphic and disgusting and then he disappeared with her in the back room. His staff kind of acted like this was all normal and I was low man on the totem pole in my company and Levin was a big client.

    He was mean too - he would yell and scream and demean us if the courier didn't pick up on time or his panels weren't run properly or whatever. Just a total nut case in my opinion.

    I just read all the stuff on him and I'm not shocked at what he's done or what he is but shocked he's still in this area. I'm going to ask around. Lab people are still lab people out there and I know a few still.

    I feel sick about this. Ick.

    News story today in the San Mateo Daily Journal about victims asking for San Mateo DA to reopen case in which Melissa Mckowan, the prosecutor on the Ayres case, worked on.

    http://www.smdailyjournal.com/articl...station%20case

    Excerpt from story on suit filed by Crime Victims United of California

    CVU specifically argues Sadek’s child was denied the right to a speedy trial because prosecutor Melissa McKowan sought several delays, the victims weren’t given reasonable notice about the case’s resolution, the victims weren’t given the right to be heard at court proceedings and weren’t informed of their rights.

    McKowan could not be reached for comment but Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said she would clearly contradict the claims and was in constant contact with the family.


    There will be a rally in front of the Redwood City courthouse on Monday August 9 at 11:00 am to protest the DA's actions. Mark Klaas, father of Polly Klaas will be one of the crime victims advocaates in attendance.

    That rally is great - I can't be there but I'm going to post it on my FB page.

    WHY would this prosecutor act in this manner? I'm glad she will be called on it. Too many times there is not enough zeal in going to trial with sexual abuse cases and I'd like to see more pressure on the DAs.

    Thanks for keeping us informed on Ayers.

    Edited to add: I get that the case may have been in jeopardy due to the inconsistency of the GHB tests on the wife's hair, and I get that without that verification the case may have not been able to stand on it's face...but the victim has a right to at least have someone try to seek justice on their behalf and if the victim is willing to testify then it's up to the jury who they believe. It gets so murky with family law cases too, ugh.

    Ziggy: My sources say that one of the other reasons the case was dismissed is that the prosecutor told the judge that the family wouldn't let the child testify. The family say that is absolutely false and that they have documents to prove it.

    Of course there are two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Thank you for your information on Roger Levin as well.

    Any possible links to Bernie Ward, the Bay Area newscaster for Ayres or Levin? After all, Ward's wife, Dr Colleen Halloran actually is a pediatrician. Remember, she's the one with the less than gracious response to her husband's conviction. I just read that he will be out and about in a little more than 3 years. Time flies.

    http://iteamblog.abc7news.com/2008/0...years-for.html

    “This whole proceeding has been crushing with an anvil. The justice department sure hasn't got any of the real terrorists out there, they got us into a war that was based on a lie, they can't control the economy, they can't control gas prices, but oh boy they got that really dangerous criminal Bernie Ward off the street and have destroyed his family, I thank you all very much.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Ward


    The following are transcripts of instant messaging between an informant and Ward prior to his arrest. I'm intrigued by the comments about the "San Mateo theater". Is this a place that Levin or Ayres might frequent? How close is this theater to their residences?

    http://dig.abclocal.go.com/kgo/PDF/o...ice-report.pdf

    (Please be aware that the above transcripts could be a trigger for some)

    While searching, I also found this great site:

    http://parents.berkeley.edu/advice/p.../modeling.html

    This forum is a great one to check out for all sorts of reviews, etc.....often with a unique Berkeley "flavor". I've checked on co-sleepers and auto reviews, concerning which vehicles can safely carry the most car seats. Nice to know that they are alerting their members about the dangers in child modeling.

    Ayres and Bernie Ward shared the same lawyer: Doron Weinberg.

    However, as Ayres can no longer afford Weinberg for the retrial, he has hired an unknown named Jonathan McDougall.

    I like the way they check the box for "routine" in the Bernie Ward complaint.


    It appears that the Palm Theater in San Mateo was demolished in 2005. Where do pervs in that city go now?

    I noticed in the Bernie Ward transcripts that he mentions to his "mistress" that he can:

    "feel your strength and i can be free with you in a way i cant with many other people..."

    I wonder who the "other people" are?

    He reminds me a little of Levin, indiscriminate in his lust.

    Who is this woman who entrapped him or tipped of LE?

    Ooops...answered my own question:

    http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?sec...eam&id=6145828

    "Sexfairy" reveals herself

    "We're finally hearing from the woman at the center of the child pornography case against former KGO Radio host Bernie Ward.

    Until now, you haven't seen her face and didn't know much about her except that she went by the screen name "Sexfairy" and called police when Ward sent her child porn.

    Please note: Understand that before reading this story or watching the interview that the topic is graphic and may be disturbing to some...."

    Some interesting facts and locations related to Bernie Ward's years as a priest. You've just got to wonder who else was connected with this guy?


    Also, in the transcripts, a 30s something woman is described as being with the children who were photographed pornographically. Who would that woman have been? Any ideas? Were any women indicted when Ward was?

    In looking at reviews of Ward's wife (she a pediatrician), they have four children.

    I found it particularly sad when I came to the part where he must get off the IM to write something concerning tsunami victims.

    From 2004:

    The Last Dirty Picture Show

    http://weblogs.variety.com/the_porni...st_dirty_.html

    "Last month, the San Mateo Planning Commissioners voted to tear down the Palm Theater in San Mateo, California, one of the last porn theaters in America. Though many supporters were drumming up support to have the 1950s art deco building added to the California Register of Historical Resources, which would have saved the theater, the Planning Commissioners sided with the many protestors of the buildings existence and decided to have it leveled instead..."

    and

    ".....These were the days when porn itself was much less accepted by mainstream than it is today, yet to see a porn movie you had to go out to a public theater and watch it surrounded by other creepy men....."

    Re: the rally in San Mateo County on August 9 to protest prosecutor Melissa Mckowan's actions - the lawsuit calls it "fraud" - in another child abuse case.

    The William Ayres blog has just done a post on this issue. Please note the comments - there are those who are criticizing her for her work on the Ayres case as well as one person who is defending her.

    And I just stumbled upon this very recent case from Long Island, New York. What's going on here? Is there an epidemic?

    This doctor is from Bethpage in Long Island, New York. Charged three weeks ago:http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/loca...ls-20100716-ac

    Pediatrician Videotaped Naked Young Girls

    BY ADRIAN CARRASQUILLO

    MYFOXNY.COM - A Bethpage pediatrician has been charged with producing child pornography after videotaping girls as young as 11-years-old under the guise of "medical exams."
