Judge: Did prosecutors go too far in baby-shaking case?


Green has been held without bail as a danger to the public since a hearing last summer, where Judge Timothy Feeley concluded that he demonstrated “unconscionable violence” toward his child, “society’s most vulnerable member and one entrusted to the love and care of (his) parents.”

“There are some cases where the violence is so extreme, inexplicable and unwarranted that this court fears for the safety of the community at large,” Feeley wrote. “This is such a case.”

The trial is scheduled for July 21.
