In Arizona, Drayton Witt’s SBS Murder Charges Dismissed – “With Prejudice”

Drayton Witt stands with his wife Maria Witt. Drayton’s 2002 second degree murder conviction was vacated recently after the Arizona Justice Project helped secure his release.

Thanks to the tireless work of the Arizona Justice Project, Drayton Witt has had 2nd degree murder charges against him for the shaking death of his 4 month old son dismissed, with prejudice.  “With prejudice” means that the state can never again bring charges against him related to the death of his son.

Read the story here.

This is another case of the pediatric medical community blindly relying on the “triad” to diagnose death by shaking.  Someday …. someday …. they will creep out of the Stone Age, and acknowledge the reality that the “triad” is NOT pathognomonic (uniquely indicative) of shaking, or as they call it today – abusive head trauma.

For more on the “triad”, see previous post here.

  2. Phil, thank you for your instructive posts on SBS cases and the research relating to this issue.

  3. So thankful for your success. Shaken baby is becoming better identified, but the pressure must remain on the corrupt coroner/medical examiners who would rather take the easy way to “victory” than investigate the case.
    God bless you and your family
