Dallas, TX asked in Criminal Law, Family Law, Appeals / Appellate Law and Constitutional Law for Texas

Q: Did Trevor go around LH after she left the ER?

There isn't enough information that proves Copeland seen the child after the visit to the ER. The ER doctor didn't mention anything about the child being strangled then. How can one say for sure that the mother didn't hurt the baby in the time from the ER discharge to the arrival of Children's Medical. Were there photos taken,and if so, could the court not compare the bruises to the size of the accused person's hands?
