Julie Baumer was wrongfully convicted of child abuse stemming from injuries sustained by her infant nephew while he was under her care. The judge granted her a new trial after attorneys presented new evidence indicating that the child’s symptoms were a result of medical issues, and not abuse. Julie was acquitted after a retrial in the fall of 2010. Julie’s was the first Michigan Innocence Clinic case to involve questionable “shaken baby syndrome” evidence, and also the first case to go to a retrial.
