Young Man Found Not Guilty of Murder

A young Cleveland man was indicted for Murder, Neglect and Felonious Assault after an allegation that he had custody of his young son when the child died of what the Cuyahoga Coroner’s office called “fatal child abuse syndrome.” The coroner’s office ruled that the child’s death months later was a direct result of the abuse. After over a year of pre-trial proceedings and the employment of some of the country’s most renowned forensic pathologists by Jordan | Sidoti LLP, the State of Ohio acquiesced that the child died of complications from pneumonia. As a result of the case, the Cuyahoga County Coroner’s office has been criticized by the other experts causing intense public scrutiny of the office in the media. Marcus Sidoti handled the case.
