Dr. Alice Newton: Massachusetts: The Globe profiles a pediatrician at the centre of storms on child abuse. “I’m not into this to accuse people,” said Massachusetts General Hospital’s Dr. Alice Newton."Her critics don’t mince words. Melinda Thompson, attorney for an Irish nanny who was recently released after the shaken-baby charges against her were dropped, referred to Newton as a “maniac” who recklessly misuses her medical power. “She has become more of a prosecutor than a doctor,” said Thompson, who represented Aisling Brady McCarthy. “I think it’s shocking that she’s heading a child abuse team at a major hospital.”
