Innocence Project Works To Free Woman Convicted In Infant Death

A weekend rally in Springfield is part of an ongoing effort to secure the release of a Chicago area woman who they say was wrongfully convicted of the death of an infant in her care.

 

Pamela Jacobazzi was a day-care provider who was sent to prison in 1999, accused of shaking a 10-month-old child to death.

 

But the Illinois Innocence Project says the diagnosis of Shaken Baby Syndrome was incorrect, and believes the child died of a pre-existing medical condition.

 

The group is encouraging people to sign online petitions asking Governor Pat Quinn to grant clemency and set Jacobazzi free.
