Ayres trial jurors’ identities will be kept secret 

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.
