UNITED STATES NEWS
** The trial of a former Colorado EMT accused of abusing his own son is continuing this week, with pundits saying the proceedings will likely stretch into next week as well. That is the word from The Coloradoan (Jason Pohl/December 7) which said the case of Fort Collins resident Jason Schneider, 33, began February 18th after authorities arrested him for allegedly inflicting head wounds on his 4-month-old. According to the newspaper, Schneider was babysitting the boy when the child apparently lost consciousness while taking his bottle. While waiting for an ambulance, Schneider said he did both CPR and back blows to revive the infant. Doctors at a Denver hospital, however, said the child’s injuries were more consistent with Shaken Baby Syndrome. Pleading not guilty in July, Schneider has been charged with Class 3 felony child abuse. Schneider, who was employed with UCHealth at the time of the incident, has since left his job.
