A Fairfax County day-care provider has been convicted of causing brain damage in a 4-month-old baby by shaking him.
Munoz insisted she never shook Noah Whitmer, and her attorneys cast doubt on the science behind "shaken baby syndrome."
Noah was taken to a hospital April 20 with seizures and hemorrhages in his brain. His parents said he is partially blind and still has seizures.
The abuse charge carries a possible prison term of two to 10 years, and the cruelty charge carries one to five years.
The 45-year-old Munoz is from Peru. The Peruvian consul general attended the trial and said candlelight vigils were held for Munoz in her home country.
