Not Guilty Plea in Shaken Baby Case

The Bradford woman accused of causing serious injuries to a 19-month-old girl has pleaded not guilty in Cattaraugus County Court.

22-year-old Jessica Courteau is charged with assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child in connection to an incident in Limestone.

Back in February the child was taken to the hospital with unexplained head trauma. Medical staff at Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo determined the trauma was mostly likely due to shaking.

The case has been adjourned for motions.
