Virginia jury hears both sides of shaken baby syndrome debate - decides in favor shaken baby syndrome in Noah Whitmer case - Keane Law Firm raises awareness of shaken baby syndrome and its effects on families

In January, a Virginia jury which reportedly heard both sides of the shaken baby syndrome debate convicted a daycare provider of felony child abuse and child cruelty for injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome suffered by Noah Whitmer.  The jury then sentenced the daycare provider to ten (10) years in prison.  It is reported that the daycare provider will appeal.

Whether the appeal is successful or not, tragically, for Noah, the injuries which he has suffered will last a lifetime.   Shaken Baby Syndrome can and does cause irreversible brain damage.  In ten (10) years, the brain damage will not be gone, it will remain.  Shaken Baby Syndrome not only damages babies, it destroys lives - especially that of the family who must care for the shaken baby for the remainder of his or her life.  To read more about shaken baby syndrome and how it has affected one little boy and his family, go to www.noahsroad.com
