Rare Syndrome Will Exonerate Dad of Child Abuse Charges
Two Maine parents are fighting to prove their young son suffers from a rare medical condition that could explain his multiple fractures and help clear his father of child abuse charges.
Prosecutors have accused Brandon Ross, 25, of injuring his son, Ryder, when the boy was just 2 months old. Ross was indicted in June 2014 on 12 counts of child abuse, and is awaiting trial. If convicted, he could face years in prison.
