Drayton Witt: Arizona Innocence Project applauded for work which freed him in 'Shaken Baby' case - after ten years behind bars. California Innocence Project.

STORY: "Arizona Justice Project frees innocent man in Shaken Baby case," by Audrey McGinn, published on November 14, 2012.

GIST:  "Drayton served 10 of his 20 year sentence in prison until The Arizona Justice Project exonerated Drayton by using the most recent research on SBS.  They contacted A.J. Mosley, the medical examiner who testified in Witt’s 2002 trial.   Mosley recanted his trial testimony by saying, “There is now no longer consensus in the medical community that the findings I reported in my autopsy report are reliable proof of SBS [shaken baby syndrome] or child abuse . . .Steven had a complicated medical history, including unexplained neurological problems. He had no outward signs of abuse. If I were to testify today, I would state that I believe Steven’s death was likely the result of a natural disease process, not SBS.”"
