Manchester CC v S

In this case we successfully defended a mother who had been co-accused (with her partner) of baby-shaking her infant son.

The concerned parents took their son to their GP when they noticed he was unwell. The GP referred the baby to the hospital and during examination the paediatricians discovered brain and eye bleeding that they reported as non-accidental (the parents had no explanation for the injuries). At this point, the Local Authority is obliged to investigate the matter and the Police and Social Services were involved.

The Local Authority had three medical experts stating it was non-accidental injury, most probably shaken baby syndrome, causing subdural haematoma (brain bleeds) and retinal haemorrhaging. The baby was taken into care: Edward Hayes helped arrange for the maternal grandmother to become carer with unlimited supervised full-contact by the parents.  Against the weight of medical evidence and expert opinion, following a seven month legal battle, Edward Hayes and its experienced legal team secured a full acquittal, re-united the family and the criminal charges were dropped.
