That story & those allegations are complete & utter BS! I've know Ryan for several years now, & I know for a FACT that he would never even think of committing a crime like that! Ryan is a sweetheart and anyone who truly knows him knows he would never do such a thing. People really need to stop slandering peoples names when they have NO IDEA what the real story is!!!

The child survived, yes, but there is a very high chance - probably even a guarantee - that this baby has sustained severe brain damage and will experience subsequent mental retardation. It's far too early for anyone to tell what kind of damage has been done, but odds are this child will be mentally handicapped for the rest of his/her life. SBS often results in death, so the babies who live through it often sustain injuries that will cause some kind of disability.

And yeah, everyone says, "Oh, he would NEVER do that!" And what he did may not even have been with malicious intent. Sometimes parents get so frustrated and angry at their crying babies that they lose it for a moment or two and shake the baby. The nicest, kindest people in the world can lose their temper. It doesn't excuse the harm they cause to their children, though.

In my opinion, you should not have children if you cannot deal with constant crying and screaming. The most common cause of SBS is parents (especially young 20-something first-time fathers) losing it for a second. Ryan might be a nice guy otherwise, but it doesn't change the fact that he has caused irreparable damage to his own child. And for that, he should be punished. I hear inmates do not treat child abusers too kindly either.

Ryan Michael Plouse, 21, of Sayre is accused of causing a severe head injury to a 2 1/2-month old baby, state police said.

The injury is commonly known as "shaken baby syndrome," state police said.

Plouse is also accused of breaking one of the infant's ribs and causing bruising to the baby's face, police said.

Plouse caused the injuries between Nov. 1 and Dec. 23, while the baby was under his care at a residence along state Route 187 in Terry Township, state police at Towanda said.

The victim has been treated and released from Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, police said.

Plouse has been charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child, recklessly endangering another person, and harassment, police said.

Plouse was arraigned before Wysox Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton on Dec. 30. Plouse was then sent to the Bradford County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, police said.

Plouse is scheduled to appear before Judge Wheaton today for a preliminary hearing

I happen to be very familiar with this case, and it is near and dear to my heart. She was NOT HIS child, but a child that was trusted into his care. This little girl is now 3 years old, and has absolutely nothing medically wrong with her. She can read and draw and speak better than most grown adults that I know. She has fully recovered and is the strongest, most wonderful child I have ever met. Her and her story are an inspiration to us all and we could never imagine life without her.
