A Castaic man was convicted of two counts of fraud Wednesday for failing to disclose assets--including a Cessna 310 airplane--in a bankruptcy petition, the U.S. attorney's office said.

William J. McGill, the man picked by Mayor Maureen O'Connor to facilitate the labor dispute between musicians and the San Diego Symphony, earned his administrator's stripes by jawboning conflicts. McGill, 65, now retired and an adjunct (non-salaried) professor of psychology at UCSD, may bring to the mayor's proposed symphony arbitration sessions the same style he used in the 1960s to wear down angry college protesters with argument.
