The following is a list of educational and legal resources available for those falsely accused of “Shaken Baby Syndrome” or nonaccidental trauma. These are not websites or persons in any way affiliated with SBSDefense.com website or 2nd Chair Services. As such, we are not intending, by listing them here, to endorse or align ourselves with any of the statements or opinions made by them or their websites. This list is simply intended to aid interested parties in finding information, resources and alternative explanations to false allegations of abuse.
2nd Chair Services has provided support in many headline cases including more than 400 “Shaken Baby” cases. Their forte is in jury consultation, but they currently possess one of the largest libraries in the nation for defending false allegations of nonaccidental head trauma to children.

Anatomy & Resources for Medical Information
Bacterial meningitis is a rare, but very serious infection which attacks the blood stream. Once in the blood stream it can begin to cause serious damage to limbs and body appendages; it can also cause brain injury, severe intracranial bleeding and can, if left untreated, lead to death.
Blood clotting disorders can lead to easy bruising and internal bleeding with minor, accidental trauma. It can even lead to the misdiagnosis of child abuse (Scroll down the page for hematologic disorders).

Wally and Debby Hines: http://www.protectourfamilies.com
Wally and Debby Hines have personally lived through the nightmare of false allegations. Their son was improperly diagnosed as an abused child and they were subsequently accused of child abuse. Their flight and pursuit for justice caught the attention of Primetime (TV News Magazine) and their story and follow-up were broadcast nationwide. Their story ends happily as their child was returned home thanks to the accurate diagnosis of Brittle Bone Disease.
This website is dedicated to helping others learn about the terrible tragedy going on in this country in regard to erroneous charges of child abuse by shaking. Unfortunately, Arnold had to learn of the tragedy at the price of having his wife imprisoned. The standard of proof demanded for other situations is far more rigorous than what is accepted for SBS cases…..especially ironic is the fact the basic premise is probably wrong.
