A man from Longmont, Colorado, could face six to ten years in prison for negligent child abuse in connection with shaking his infant nephew in 2008, according to the Colorado Daily website. Although the 18-month-old shaken baby syndrome victim is reportedly doing well now, the baby was only 8 weeks old when he sustained multiple injuries and hematomas on the brain when his uncle, 36-year-old Troy Pierce, allegedly shook him while babysitting. After the infant's parents expressed concern that their child was having tremors and problems with his eyes, the baby suffered from seizures at the hospital, and Pierce was arrested in March 2008. Friday, July 24, the uncle pled guilty to the felony child abuse charge for seriously injuring the boy.
