Sheffield and Peters Obtain Dismissal in Shaken Baby Syndrome Case

Following Defense Counsel’s intensive review of the facts of the case and their work with medical experts in pediatric neuroradiology and acute life threatening events (ALTEs), defense counsel was able to demonstrate that the bleeds in baby’s head were there as a result of her stopping breathing and going without oxygen for an extended period of time and not a violent shaking.  On the eve of trial, the District Attorney’s Office chose to dismiss all charges.
