Man who 'lost it' jailed for shaking baby and leaving her with brain injury

James Pemberton, 33, of Cross Road, Manningham, Bradford, initially told police victim had hit head on windowsill

A MAN who shook a four-month-old baby so violently that she suffered a brain injury and may be left with permanent damage has been jailed for two years.
James Pemberton, 33, initially claimed the injuries had been caused by him dropping the little girl on her head, but he later admitted shaking her as he “momentarily lost it”.
The child’s mother said the impact of the assault on her daughter had “turned her life upside down” and unable to trust anyone with her children again.




Pemberton, of Cross Road, Manningham, Bradford, had pleaded guilty to a charge of assault causing grievous bodily harm prior to yesterday’s sentencing at Bradford Crown Court.
Prosecutor Simon Waley told the court that at around 2.30pm on November 16, 2014, a call for an ambulance was made due to the child being injured and slipping in and out of consciousness.
After she was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI), tests revealed the infant had suffered a subdural haemorrhage to the brain.
Further examination then found retinal bleeding, bleeding within the spine, and bruises to her head and neck.
When interviewed by police, Pemberton said the child had fallen and hit her head on a windowsill from a height of around two to three feet.
