Media Circus Around NFL Alleged Rapist Has Packed Up and Left Town
On December 7, 2015, the media circus that had come to Santa Clara County to cover the rape and domestic violence issues surrounding former 49er Ray Mc Donald had vanished, and a lone local media outlet was left to request to cover Mc Donald's criminal hearing, a request Santa Clara County Judge Helen Williams promptly denied.
In Mc Donald's Santa Clara County custody case, Judge Towery has allowed alleged rapist and abuser Ray Mc Donald nearly 50% timeshare with his child, despite expert testimony confirming Mc Donald’s admitted alcoholism and three police reports showing Mc Donald is a liar and more than likely has repeatedly beat the mother of his own child, in between raping drunk women he picks up in area bars.

What did the NFL, and Key Members in the 49er Organization Know ?
Jane and John Q members were appalled to learn that as Mc Donald faced criminal rape charges, and Domestic Violence Restraining Order Violations, Family Court Judge James Towery allowed Mc Donald more time with a 15 month old breast feeding child, in a related cusotdy case.
In other cases before him, Judge Towery has been on record telling unrepresented fathers, or poor fathers, that children under 5 fall under "tender years" consideration, where it is in the best interest of children to spend most time with their mother.
Towery's judicial mental principle process seems to not apply to celebrity NFL football players, who police officers have documented to be a liar, likely rapists and domestic violence abuser.
The Health & Safety Of A Child is a Matter of Public Interest
Judge Towery's judicial record consistently shows a pandering to wealthy parents, usually fathers, and a complete disregard for women and children, much like the judicial culture that resulted in Judge Chiarello giving custody to a represented father , who then raped and killed his own daughter.
On December 7, 2016 Judge Williams appeared to carefully oversee Mc Donald's criminal hearing, assuring Mc Donald due process while addressing new areas of law with regard to cell phone and security passwords..
Many are wondering if Santa Clara County Judges are capable of protecting children as much as they appear willing to try to protect rapists and mother beaters.
Trained court watchers reported that on December 7, 2016, Judge Williams botched a simple judicial task related to the handling of exhibits for the People ( Exhibits 1 and 2), which may leave the door open for an appeal if a Santa Clara County jury should ultimately convict Mc Donald of rape or violation of a domestic violence restraining order, a result that would give the public a de ja vu experience (Brock Turner Stanford Rape Sentencing).
NLF player blows $20,000,000 as he pays $2500/month in child support
While Mc Donald has not worked formally for the NFL in nearly two years, and appears to be "damaged goods" by the NFL standards, Judge Towery seems to be in no hurry to impute Mc Donald for child support. Towery has even ordered the child's mother to miss work as a hairdresser and customer service representative, to fly to Florida for Thanksgiving to accommodate Mc Donald's visitation time with his 15 month old breast feeding son. Mc Donald was reported to have used that time playing with his phone , as his criminal family members , strangers to the child , bounced the child from stranger to stranger , and his mother and maternal grandma waited in a hotel room down the block.
Many alienated grandparents, aunts and uncles across the country are wondering why families of NFL domestic abusers are allowed to see children, when innocent family members are legally alienated from children in their families by family law judges for no reason at all.
Judge Towery also seemed ill concerned that as Mc Donald's parental rights are assured in family court, his hightly paid lawyers are trying to supress eidence that would prove Mc Donald is an alcoholic rapists and the worst kind of domestic abuser, and certianly until to care for a 15 mlnth old child.
The evidence that seems to be of most concern to Mc Donald and his criminal defense team is reported to demonstrate to a reasonable person that Ray Mc Donald is guilty of rape, domestic violence, sexual assault, and simply a bad dad, looking to "GAME " the system and avoid paying child support. Mc Donald may just be able to legally suppress that information based on the bumbling efforts of the SJPD, which is reminiscent of the police investigations during the OJ Simpson trial.
Ironically, James Towery , entered the State Bar in a formal position on the day the OJ Simpson verdict came in. Towery immediately faced a rash of attorney misconduct complaints that arose from the OJ Simpson trial. James Towery was later run out of the State Bar under a cloud of ethical issues, most involving his repeated failure to address attorney misconduct.
When James Towery landed in a Santa Clara County family court judicial assignment, Towery drew the card of Mc Donald's custody case, and landed the fame he had reportedly long sought throughout his tainted legal career. Many are saying Towery's oversight of this case is further evidence of the systemic judicial dysfunctions found in Santa Clara County's legal system. A system that seems unconcerned with upholding public trust, or protecting children.
Are Police More Concerned with Getting Free 49er tickets than Protecting Women and Children?
On December 7, 2016 members of the SJPD testified as to how they asked Mr. Mc Donald for the passwords to his phone and security camera recorders. SJPD never asked the victim of Ray's crimes about those passwords when she was present in the Petco Parking lot on December 16, 2014, or at Mc Donald's home as she was detained while SJPD spent over 5 hours watching and searching the home. Maybe the SJPD never interviewed Mc Donald's domestic violence victim because if they had , they would have found she had the passwords and would have happily given them to her, along with all the screen shots of conversations Ray had with the SJPD officers he routinely kicked back 49er tickets to .
Santa Clara County's court seemed unconcerned with the exparte like communication between Mc Donald and a SJPD witness on December 7, 2016, where the media agency present observed Mc Donald request for an unscheduled "personal break" , and Mc Donald and sworn in SJPD witness Sean Pierce rushed to the men's bathroom for a little pre- testimony chit chat.
Santa Clara also seems unconcerned with the impact of Mc Donald's 49er celebrity status, which remains strong today and can be seen as bailiffs in his criminal case (Deputy R. Gonzales) take every opportunity to talk football with one so connected to their beloved team.
The mother of Ray Mc Donald's child has reported she has experienced similar experiences with Santa Clara County Sheriffs assigned as bailiffs in the custody matter before Judge Towery.
It seems unlikely that a community that was willing to spend $1.85 billon dollars to build Levi's Stadium and create a strong NFL culture in Silicon Valley, is also capable of caring for and lawfully protecting the victims that culture ultimately creates.
Did SJPD Set Up The Rape and DV case to get Ray Mc Donald a GET-OUT- OF-JAIL- FREE CARD?
Members of John Q Public are wondering if officer Sean Pierce is the same Sean ostensibly giving Ray personal police favors back on August 30, 2014 , when Ray was first formally reported to have beaten the mother of his own child, as she was just weeks into her pregnancy.
