A young woman was accused and convicted of murdering her daughter based on the theory of “shaken baby syndrome,” which is now known as “abusive head trauma.” She spent years in prison before the University of Michigan Innocence Clinic got involved with her case. Mary and Marisa then joined with the Innocence Clinic to represent this wrongfully convicted young woman. The end result was that the government’s witnesses were patently wrong—our client did not murder her daughter. The young girl died of a medical condition that doctors failed to diagnosis and treat despite our client having taken her daughter to the doctor multiple times for help. Our client did absolutely nothing wrong. After being wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years, C&N’s client was finally exonerated. She is now connecting with her family and living her life to the fullest.
