Case Conclusion Date:August 1, 2011
Practice Area:Child Abuse
Outcome:No charges filed against either parent; CPS closed their investigation without a finding of abuse or neglect against either parent.
Description:Parents brought young child to Children's Hospital with fractured arm. Hospital staff decided that the fracture was likely not the result of an accident, but likely an intentional act by one of the parents. I successfully demonstrated to CPS and police with the opinions of other medical providers that the child's injury was the likely the result of the child's genetic disability and was consistent with an accident.
