Documentary revealing the inside story of what happens when someone is accused of a serious crime that could lead to a prison sentence of 10 years or more, following the suspect's journey through the criminal justice system. Featuring access to the defendant, her family and her legal team, the film shows every twist and turn of this traumatic experience, from the realisation of being charged, to the first meeting with the defence team and right up to the trail itself and the subsequent verdict.

I have missed the first fifteen minutes. Just switched over

Pretty harrowing. I'm a bit surprised that they have been able to make this considering the nature of the crime.

SoleBizzz Mon 06-Feb-17 21:20:07

Shaken baby? I cat fathom the gist yet.

Afreshstartplease Mon 06-Feb-17 21:25:49

I'm watching this , I don't think I believe her

karmassidekick Mon 06-Feb-17 21:26:45

I assumed from the advert the baby had died.. missed the first 10 minutes.

Afreshstartplease Mon 06-Feb-17 21:29:48

Baby was taken into care. She then had another which was also removed

katienana Mon 06-Feb-17 21:34:38

It's difficult to watch. I'm not convinced of her innocence either.

Afreshstartplease Mon 06-Feb-17 21:35:37

She doesn't seem at all emotional about anything. She's just said she has fun doing bloody boot sales

BedHeaded Mon 06-Feb-17 21:35:45

There's something odd about the mum. When I first started watching it I thought it was bad acting, didn't realise it was a real life doc.

He called a baby a greedy cunt.
But she says he couldn't have done it????
She waited, was it, six minutes between googling baby won't wake up, and calling for help???
Nah, she's guilty!!

Afreshstartplease Mon 06-Feb-17 21:37:55

And she's still basically in a relationship with him

RockyBird Mon 06-Feb-17 21:38:04

Agree

HalfShellHero Mon 06-Feb-17 21:38:07

Shes seems very ....young and not quite there i think the 2nd baby removal probably finished her off, in terms of state of mind, not sure what to think half way through atm, shes very flat....

mrsBeverleygoldberg Mon 06-Feb-17 21:40:37

I'm trying to read her too. Seems odd to stay with the bf after she said he was verbally abusive.

karmassidekick Mon 06-Feb-17 21:41:59

She's odd. I'm keeping an open mind, but if 16 medical professionals have said the baby was shaken..
He did it, and if he had been abusing the mum too maybe she has some sort of stokholm syndrome.? Not making excuses I just can't fathom how a healthy person would want anything to do with somone who even might have done that to your baby. Any doubt would be too much.
Why has her contact with the child decreased so much? She didn't really mention the younger one

grounddown Mon 06-Feb-17 21:42:16

If he supposedly didn't do it and she didn't do it, who caused those injuries??

RTKangaMummy Mon 06-Feb-17 21:42:18

Can someone work out the maths for me please?

Had she had baby 2 taken away before or after voluntary police interviews?

ShallNotBeNamed Mon 06-Feb-17 21:42:38

I can't work it out, but I think that's the idea to show us what the legal team have to deal with

1happyhippie Mon 06-Feb-17 21:43:12

I'm watching this too. Awful case.
I'm unsure of the mum so far.

katienana Mon 06-Feb-17 21:43:19

So sad when women like her can't see how a man is destroying their life! How does she think the baby got injured?

gemdrop84 Mon 06-Feb-17 21:48:24

It's so sad, she's very adamant he hasn't done anything so who did? It was 8 mins between the internet search for "why baby won't wake up" and calling nhs 111...that would feel like forever if your baby floppy/unresponsive wouldn't it?! Her mum seemd really odd too but glad she's involved in her dgc life.

quicklydecides Mon 06-Feb-17 21:50:23

Well she absolutely should blame herself!!

BedHeaded Mon 06-Feb-17 21:51:19

Was that web search done by her or Kyle?
