Shoulda watched those never-shake-a-baby PSAs a little closer, Stephen Dailey

Hard to believe that Stephen Dailey has never seen those public-service announcements warning people to never shake a baby -- even once. But if he did, the Denver District Attorney's Office believes he didn't take them to heart. Otherwise, he wouldn't have been accused of attempted first-degree murder and sundry other crimes associated with treating his two-month-old son like a paint can in need of mixing.

Took a while to pin down the charges: The incident took place on September 15. But Dailey's due in court tomorrow to face what looks like a shaky legal situation. Get more details in the release below.


Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey has formally charged a man accused of causing serious bodily injury to his two-month old son.

Stephen Dailey (DOB: 04-21-89) is charged with attempted first-degree murder (F2), child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury (F3), and a crime of violence (se).

On September 15, 2009, emergency services responded to the 200 block of Lincoln Street on a report of an eight-week-old infant who was not breathing and was non-responsive. The charges allege that Stephan Dailey shook his infant son, causing serious bodily injury.

Dailey is currently in custody in the Denver County Jail. His bond has been set at $150,000. He is scheduled to appear in Denver County Court, room 12T, for a second advisement on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 9 a.m.
