"The District Attorney who led the prosecution against Aisling Brady McCarthy has denied to the Irish Daily Mail that she is to blame for the nanny’s ordeal.
Ms Brady McCarthy hit out during the week about her ‘scandalous’ treatment by police and prosecutors while she faced charges for an alleged murder that, it emerged, never happened. First-degree murder charges were sensationally dropped when the medical examiner changed her evidence and said in was unlikely that the year-old baby Ms Brady McCarthy was caring for had died of shaken baby syndrome. But Middlesex District attorney Marian Ryan defended her own actions in the case. She told the Mail it was her job to follow the evidence, and said her office had relied on the medical examiner’s statements.
