A nurse sentenced to nine years in prison after the death of a shaken baby – L’Express

The 49-year nurse caused the death of a 7 month by projecting his recliner ground repeatedly. A Créteil, the Assize Court of Val-de-Marne sentenced to nine years in prison. A lesser sentence that had required the Advocate General, who had claimed between 12 and 14 years imprisonment.

Death pronounced after four hours of intensive care

Considered for “voluntary violence causing death without intention to kill”, this former childminder, converted in hairdressing, appearing free, nearly eight years after the facts. On 3 October 2008, the childminder had alerted the emergency because the small Charlotte, she kept only for a month, was “limp”. His death had been pronounced after four hours of intensive care.

Approved for 17 years at the material time, the nanny, in which the parents had trusted, had denied any inappropriate gesture and spoke a simple malaise to lunch.

Projected ground, “three or four times”

This is only a year and a half later, in May 2010, two experts -médecins after several reviews and reports, had stated with certainty that Charlotte’s death was the result of “shaken baby syndrome”.

In custody, the nurse had first denied, then admitted having raised half a meter in the lounger which rested the child before spraying the ground, “than three or four times”. “I’m so sorry, so sorry. I never thought I would do something like this,” blew the accused, in tears, at the opening of the trial.

Several precedents

The investigation revealed that it had already been guilty of abuse of several children. Some facts date back to the late 1990. In 2004, a mother had broken the contract with the nurse after recovering his son “on the back, haggard look,” according to the testimony of the police captain in charge of the investigation . And 2006, Clara, 7 months, had suffered intracranial pressure requiring the placement of a drain. Facts and several others, who are investigating in current disjointed processes.
