PA - man shakes 7 week old infant
Thomas Gordon violently shook his 7 week old baby. This determined after this poor infant was brought to hospital with a severe head injury.Once again what the heck are people thinking? Who in their right mind shakes an infant? Man, I know it can be stressful in situations with a colicy infant. Leave the room ya lunatic. Take a breath. Anything but harming a helpless infant.The baby is in Lehigh hospital. According to this link I think the baby will survive.http://www.lehighvalleylive.com/phil...s_charges.html

Thomas Gordon, 25, of the first block of Bullman Street in Phillipsburg, was sentenced today in state Superior Court to five years in state prison for aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child...
Karl Keys, Gordon’s attorney, said his client was high on heroin when he violently shook and dropped the then-7-week-old baby in the Phillipsburg home...
Loudenberry described, with some difficulty, the list of injuries her daughter suffered: massive retinal damage, bleeding on the brain, torn ligaments in the throat and neck and bruised ribs. Doctors detected evidence of previous injuries that they dated to three days earlier, the first day Gordon was home alone with the baby after Loudenberry’s maternity leave expired...
Loudenberry said she was told that if her child survived, she’d likely have extensive brain damage and full loss of her eyesight.
Somehow, she said, the resilient girl escaped her grim prognosis.
“The wonderful thing about this case, your honor, is that her daughter is now a thriving 2-year-old,” Shelton told Bartlett.
