Melissa Calusinski was convicted of murder in 2011 and was sentenced to 31 years in prison. Calusinski was accused of throwing a child to the floor, causing fatal injuries, while working as a teacher’s aide at a day care center.
Evidence shows that Calusinski was wrongfully convicted based on false medical testimony and a false coerced confession. The State’s key expert witness has now admitted that he overlooked forensic evidence showing that the victim had a pre-existing injury, leading supporters to call for an independent review of Calusinski’s case by medical experts.
