Nanny to the stars jailed after leaving baby brain-damaged in 'act of genuine cruelty'

Full Article:

A celebrity nanny who left a baby with brain damage and a broken arm after shaking him violently was yesterday jailed for three years.
Jasmin Schmidt, 34, who has previously worked for an A-list pop star, lost her temper with the two-and-a-half-month-old boy during a 'restless night'.
The force of the shaking caused tiny blood vessels between his skull and brain to tear and bleed.
On their return, the boy's parents found him 'limp and lifeless' and took him to hospital.
Schmidt, a qualified paediatric nurse from Bonn in Germany , now living in Hampstead, North London, had been hired to look after the child while his parents attended a London Fashion Week function in 2002.
