    Past: District Attorney


    District Attorney William Bardwell showed up in Genoa City in 2006 to investigate the case surrounding the murder of Thomas Fisher. During the time in which John Abbott had been suffering from memory loss, Will was forced to arrest John's daughter Ashley after she admitted to killing Tom as a way to protect her father. Soon the truth came out when John regained his memory and summons the DA with a full confession. Although William sympathized with the circumstances of the case, he had no choice but to prosecute and send John Abbott to prison for murder.

    William would then go on to investigate the case involving Ashley Abbott and the tainted Jabot Cream. Although there were many scenarios surrounding the case, no one was ever tried for contaminating the cream. William grew fond of and briefly dated Ashley Abbott, but work and other distractions soon won over�

    For months, Gloria Abbott and Jill Abbott fought for William's affection. Although William had a connection with Gloria, seeing as they were both the widows of lost loves, Jill ultimately broke down Will's walls and snagged a one night stand with the dapper DA!

    These days William is faced to head up Genoa City's latest crime with the murder of Carmen Mesta! Although always considered a fair man, William's keen sense of reading suspects has led him to target Devon Hamilton as the key suspect in the case. With suspicion lingering over the heads of many of the residents of Genoa City, the district attorney is sure to have his hands full in the solving of this high profile case!

    Gloria runs into Jeffrey at the Club and they decide to swap information about each other. They sit down and later she discusses how meeting John and his brother changed her life. She described John as being the “perfect man” and the first man who allowed her to hold her head up high even though he did leave her out of his will. She thinks his son Jack was responsible but there is no proof. Jeffrey understands how she feels, he doesn’t know if William really meant to leave him out of his will or was manipulated into doing it. Gloria questions this, John was sick, but William wasn’t. She wonders how he alienated both William and his uncle. She admits with William it was Miranda. He explains with his uncle he made his own fortune and feels his uncle thought he didn’t really need the money, but admits to Gloria that although he made a fortune, it was all lost eventually.
