In California, Justice for Emma: Day-Care Provider Faces Sentence in Baby Shaking Case | Shaken Baby Syndrome
Sophie Crew reportedly dropped off her 13-month-old daughter Emma with a Santee day-care provider one Friday in September 2009.
Hours later, Crew was reportedly being told by doctors at Rady Children’s Hospital to prepare to say goodbye to Emma—being treated for severe brain injuries and placed in a coma.
“She’s a miracle, a complete miracle,” Crew reportedly said Wednesday from her Santee home after describing a harrowing ordeal with a chapter closing Thursday in El Cajon Superior Court.
Patricia Bernal, the reported day-care provider, reportedly faces a maximum penalty of six years in prison after having pleaded guilty Feb. 15 to one count of felony child abuse, according to Tanya Sierra of the District Attorney’s Office.
