Bill Perry Removed from Family Court for Disturbing Blog Posts

It's natural for a mother to be curious about a stranger who controls the fate of her child. So when Robin Wilson — a Mission district resident involved in a bitter custody battle over her 11-year-old daughter — learned that San Francisco psychotherapist Bill Perry had been assigned to evaluate her case, she did some research.

What she found wasn't comforting. An attorney acquaintance directed her to Perry's personal blog. The site featured a string of apparent first-person narratives, including musings on bestiality, transgender prostitutes ("Some people say it's the best of both worlds"), and — most alarmingly — what appeared to be an admission that Perry regularly uses chloral hydrate, a form of "date-rape drug" that drastically sedates those who ingest it.

Perry described administering the drug to himself — and to a mouse in his home. "I tried chasing him with the broomstick but just fell down a lot," he wrote of his efforts to apprehend the mouse while in an addled state. "Then it dawned on me. Cut open the capsule, pour the activating fluid all over the cheese, and just set the date-rape soaked delicacy in the box.... On the third morning I found one woozy little mouse stumbling all over my apartment." The post was dated the day before he signed a family-court evaluation that recommended full child custody for Wilson's ex-boyfriend, Kelly Paul.

"I was terrified," Wilson said. "A man who admits that he date-rape drugs himself every night should not be doing custody evaluations."

Wilson filed a complaint with court officials. Ann Donlan, spokesperson for the San Francisco Superior Court, said last week that Perry has been removed from the family courts' list of recommended custody evaluators based on a complaint. While she could not identify the complainant, Perry himself told SF Weekly he was informed by court officials it was Wilson's criticisms that led to his removal.

All this is a mistake, according to Perry, who said the blog writings are for the most part fiction, with only tangential connections to his real life. "I've been a member of a creative-writing class for several years," Perry said. "There is nothing there that has anything to do with court evaluations or my work as an evaluator.... Everything on the blog is fiction."

He said his blog post about the date-rape drug is a fabulation. (The post itself states, "With some poetic license, [the story] also happens to be true.") He said another post, in which he describes corresponding with a Chilean woman who gives blow jobs to a stallion named Diablo — "When Diablo ejaculates it is like a shower of it and I rub it into my face and breasts" — was "fictionalized."

Cheryl Sena, the lawyer for Paul, said there was nothing wrong with Perry's work on the case. "He did a professional job and came up with the appropriate conclusions in a highly contested case," she said. Paul agreed, saying, "I believe absolutely that Robin is attacking Dr. Perry as a way to get her daughter back. It's not because she's afraid of Dr. Perry being around children. If the evaluation had gone her way, none of this would be an issue."

Perry said after his evaluation went against Wilson she threatened to destroy his reputation, an assertion Wilson doesn't deny.

"I told him, 'I'm going to make sure everyone finds out what you've done, and I'm going to make sure you're never alone in a room with a child again,'" Wilson said.

Whatever her motives, Wilson's case resonates with family-court reform advocates who say too much power and not enough scrutiny are given to the court-appointed psychologists who make high-stakes custody recommendations to judges. Last year, a Beverly Hills psychiatrist was thrown off a case after a litigant discovered photos online of the evaluator baring his buttocks, and Facebook posts promoting the gay escort service Rentboy.com.

"This is just the latest in a string of stories we've heard of unethical, illegal, or bizarre behaviors from unstable family-court professionals who wield enormous power over the fate of children in divorce cases," said Kathleen Russell of the Center for Judicial Excellence, a family-court reform group based in Marin County. "Sadly, this is all too common."

Whether Perry's blog showcases fiction or fact, its discovery had little effect on Wilson's case. Wilson said she tried to bring the posts to the attention of Judge Patrick Mahoney, who supervises San Francisco's family-court division and was overseeing her case. Despite Perry's blogging, Mahoney ultimately followed his custody recommendation, and gave full custody of Wilson's daughter to her ex.

We would like help recalling Judge Verna Adams. recently she gave custody to an abuser and the child is in harms way.

Bill Perry's twisted blogs is the side issue. What is the reason that Wilson cannot retain custody of her own child? What are the always do's or the never do's that got her there in the first place. Forget about Perry what about Wilson?!

I read this story - and the name Dr. Bill Perry rang a bell... and then I remembered a conversation on Yelp over a year ago about a Dr Bill Perry that was caught posting his own reviews on yelp and other review sites. It's an interesting read. http://www.yelp.com/topic/san-...

As CA Director for the National Alliance for Family Court Justice, I have been following cases like this for approximately 15 years. The sad reality is that most, if not all of the so called "experts" connected to these deliberately mishandled cases are greedy, crooked and perverted phonies who buy into so-called "parental alienation syndrome" (PAS) legal maneuvering for two primary reasons: 1) Because it calls for lining their pockets (as described in my articles about family court corruption, originally posted at newsmakingnews.com: http://www.newsmakingnews.com/... 2) Because it furthers a misogynistic, pedophilic, pro-abuser abuser agenda being carried out in the guise of "fathers" rights.

I am disgusted, but not at all surprised that the judge in this case, as in many, many others, not only relied on an outright pervert, but granted custody to "dad", regardless of the circumstances or facts of the case. That's what PAS (including "threat therapy"), which was originally crafted as a legal defense of child molesters, calls for. And that's how the court and its appointees make big money, including via misusing "Responsible Fatherhood", "Access to Visitation Enforcement" and similar grant funding authorized to them through CA "Conciliation Court Law" via appointment of unqualified and unethical appointees.

This is why, in 2006, the Town of Fairfax adopted Resolution 2466, denouncing use of PAS strategies and calling for legislators at all levels of government to work with us to address this issue at the state and federal levels: http://www.nafcj.net/fairfax.h...

BTW, this week my friend Mildred Muhammad, ex wife of the DC Sniper John Muhammad, was honored for her work helping domestic violence victims. Ten years ago, I wrote about that case, connecting it to the federally funded Devoted Dads program in Tacoma WA. http://newsmakingnews.com/ross... The attorney for Devoted Dads portrayed John Muhammad as a "nice" guy who lost custody for no reason, and it was apparently he who told Muhammad where his ex and children were hiding.

Ten people were murdered because of how this "custody" case alone was mishandled. Over the years that I've been following family court issues, hundreds (if not thousands) of women and children are being tortured, abused and killed. When is it going to stop?

Damn. I hope animal control can save this child if Judge Mahoney can't.

I strongly urge each and every reader to google the following story by Virginia McCullough:

"CHILD VISITATION SUPERVISOR INVOLVED IN BESTIALITY AND MASTER/SLAVE SEX"

I also urge each parent to request a copy of Judge Mahoney's Form 700 financial disclosure, and wait for the swiss cheese to come through the mail. Google his name together with the term AFCC. Then complain to the judicial council if you find anything...I believe there may be a complaint open already.

The courts need to figure out that wanting full custody is a significant indicator of parental incapacity.

When the mothers have custody, the fathers get either shared custody or visitation but when the fathers get custody it's like court ordered kidnap. It is literally like having a child stolen and nobody doing anything about it. It gas the appearance of being legal but the reality is that every policy and proceedure is bypassed and every law is over ruled.

Check out the shrinks and "therapists" some who retired then killed their daughters and grand-children during a custody dispute...as well as the fake therapists the court doesn't seem to mind at the "therapists" section at www.Familylawcourts.com. Kids are very important. They're the cog in the divorce industry wheel.

That is the problem. Because Judge Mahoney gave weight to a crooked unfit evaluator, we have no idea if that child is safe or if either parent is fit. How many tens of thousands of dollars were these parents ordered to pay this unfit evaluator? What remedy does this child have?

Hypothetically, even if the father were a full blown pedophile involved with a master/slave bestiality sex ring inspiring all these tales spun by the perverted custody evaluator (and I have no knowledge to that effect and do not speculate that he is-as far as I know the father is not,) Judge Mahoney failed to properly protect the child because he did not investigate the complaint and follow up appropriately. The complaint that the evaluator is unfit and writing bestiality porn is clearly credible. But Mahoney effectively covered it up and clearly intended to discredit the mother in future proceedings after she complained.

The consequence of Mahoney's crooked ruling is that any "investigation" which comes after Mahoney's ruling is going to focus on whether there is civil liability for the professionals, meaning that even if the child is living in a pro-bestiality/pro incest home, that is where they will likely stay.

At some point, Presiding Judge Feinstein is going to have to take her job to oversee the family court seriously and remove Judge Mahoney. He is unfit to oversee the welfare of families or supervise his staff full of abuse industry promoters.

Google "Judge Lillian K. Sing" and "Pedophiles getting custody"

Google "Commissioner Marjorie Slabach" and "Poor Magazine"

Google "Judge Patrick Mahoney" and "Kids'Turn"

Hi Cindy.  Thanks for your comment.  I have been trying to contact you through the National Alliance for Family Court Justice but my efforts have been unsuccessful.  

Will you let me know how we can make contact?   thank you.  Robin

@writenow I have found in my 30 year career that there are many people, both men and women, who have no business being parents. They are too far pathologically gone down the narcissism trail to ever provide a child the necessary emotional supplies for happiness and fulfillment. So many of you are so quick to blame the messenger, even in the face of an obviously deeply psychotic individual only out for vengeance. I thank God every day that I prevented her from gaining custody of her beautiful child.and I sleep well at night. Do you think she does?
