Springfield Area Father Acquitted of Shaken Baby Charges

A Springfield man who spent the last two-and-a-half years in jail is now free after a jury acquitted him of shaking and injuring his infant daughter.


Testimony at the trial of Richard Britts indicated the girl may have had a pre-existing medical condition that caused her to have a seizure while Britts was watching her.


Experts also testified that the child did not have some of the telltale signs of shaken baby syndrome.


Britts had been in custody since his arrest in April of 2010.
