A California couple has filed a claim for an alleged shaking of their 4-year-old son, the twin brother of a little girl who died after an alleged incident of shaken baby syndrome by a nanny three years ago, according to ABC's News10 website. According to the article, Scott and Lorena Juceam claim that a teacher shook and abused their son Benjamin during a special education program last May. Benjamin, who has been diagnosed with Down's Syndrome, was verbally abused, shaken, and thrown into a chair on multiple occasions in front of two teacher assistants, claims Scott, who also says that he and his wife found out about the abuse only after Child Protective Services had been called by another educator. Making it especially difficult for the Juceams, the Placer County District Attorney's Office decided against pressing charges.
