Thank goodness the trial is going on as planned. It has taken too long to get to this point. I truly hope that the scales of justice tip in their favor and that the woman who did this to poor little Hannah pays for her crime. I am sure that their family will never be the same, but a conviction might give just a little bit of closure. God bless the Juceam family.

How funny people talk about justice and assume that the nanny did it. How easy is it for the father, mother or another family member to do this to their own baby, and blame someone who they feel no one will believe.

I only have a nominal knowledge of this case, however it is interesting that even before the trial begins we have already convicted the nanny... Who is to say it wasn't the mother, or the father? It could be argued that their foundation of an organization to prevent the deaths of infants as a result of shaking could only be a ploy.

Hey Jen, let me take a picture of you after you have been arrested for murder, been stripped searched, and had your life turned completely around. I cannot imagine you looking any better.

I don't think that they have investigated the parents enough about the death of the child. When a child is shaken it can take hours for a child to show signs of anything being wrong, I am not saying the nannie is innocent but it could have easily been the parents. But then again only the people involved know the truth.

Jen, based on my experience in Sacramento, and Rancho Cordova in particular, I can't imagine you looking any better.

I still wonder why no one looks into these parents who had NO PROBLEM paying someone who wasn't a citizen? There is more than one law broken: murder, illegal hiring...I DO believe we should look into the parents. If they will break one law, why wouldn't they break another? I only hope the real truth comes out.

Not only is she not a citizen she is an illegal inmigrant. That said, you get what you pay for.
Legal or illegal the nanny is entitled to an impartial trial and should be considered innocent until proven guilty. By the way, I also find the father's actions strange and agree that it almost feels like he's trying really hard to focus attention away from the family. Just an observation.
Last but not least, I must say that it's very sad that a little girl lost her life, regardless of whose fault it was.

Maybe there is a reason that they have not investigated the parents as much as you feel they should - because the facts and cirucmstances surrounding the case don't warrant it. If the police, prosecutors and experts investigating the case saw any reason to believe that this could have been caused by the parents, they would have done the work and completed a full investigation.

I think once the trial begins we will start to see the truth come out and yes, justice will be done here.

No kidding, a face like that will make kids run away screaming. Why would they let someone like that into their home.

Do you really think she's going to run around shouting "I did it, I did it!!!"? Ummm, no. Of course she's guilty and finally the family will get their trial. For those of you blaming the family, get over it, the cops did their job and it led to one person. The Nanny.

For those who think the police are infallible just remember the Jon Benet Ramsey case.

Remember she is proven innocent until PROVEN GUILTY. I agree with Pab why weren't the parents looked into this investigation. I believe they were not look into because of them being white. Her is someone of a diffeent nationality, lets put the blame on her and let her pay the price. Racial prejudice is still going on by our great and glorious sheriff department. Just because the nanny was watching the little girl does not mean the mother was not holding her prior to being shaken. The effects of shaken baby syndrome are not immediate. By the way, I had an illegal immigrant, I believe, watch my daughter for 3 years and nothing happened to her.

I remember reading about this when it happened in May 2006, with one article saying the alarmed babysitter immediately called the mother, who had only been gone from the house for 14 minutes and telling the mother that something was the matter with the toddler. The mother then immediately came home, arriving on the scene to paramedics trying to aid the little girl.

Believe me, I have a lot of knowledge about the law now that I have gone through some things with family and the police don't always do their job, yet do it right. I personally have no faith in our justice system. Cops are just as crooked as criminals.

From day one of this case the overbearing father has aggressively, publicly and self-righteously demanded that the babysitter/nanny "admit" her guilt. His immediate accusatory behavior (that continues to this day) followed by seeking all the public attention for his non-profit do-good organization cannot be deemed as behavior from someone who is seeking truth. "She's a liar, she's a liar," says he about the nanny. Meanwhile his wife has said nothing. He'll do all the talking, all the acting, call all the press conferences. I think something is awry here.
