29-year-old Sarah Kuiper-Boles, a babysitter in Idaho, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after violently shaking of a 6-month-old baby she was babysitting.
Contreras, the mother of baby Julian, said she came home one day and noticed some strange behavior from her son. She confronted the babysitter about the condition of her son, and Sarah told her that the baby had rolled off the couch.
The mother took her baby to the hospital after his behavior worsened and he had started vomiting. Initially, the doctors told her he might have a virus, but a week later, a CAT scan revealed that there was blood, inflammation in his head, and fluid flowing around his brain.
The babysitter eventually confessed that she had violently shaken the baby because he wouldnâ€™t stop crying. She admitted to police that, on one occasion, the babyâ€™s eyes rolled back in his head, his body went limp, and he began to vomit.
Kuiper-Boles was sentenced to 10 years in prison and was ordered to have no contact with the victim, the victimâ€™s family, or any minors for that entire period.
