Florida Woman Accused of Child Abuse

(Brevard County, Florida) A 20-year-old local woman, Victoria Constance Bennett, has been accused of shaking an 11-month-old infant and causing injury because the child would not eat nor stop crying.

Bennett faces a charge of aggravated child abuse.
Deputies say they began investigating after Victoria Constance Bennett and her husband brought the unresponsive child to Cape Canaveral Hospital on Friday.

The child was transferred to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando. Experts there determined the child suffered a traumatic brain injury resulting in seizures and partial paralysis, consistent with “shaken baby syndrome.”
Bennett was booked into custody at the Brevard County Detention Center and released on community supervision.
