Santa Barbara - A Santa Barbara father accused of injuring his infant girl by shaking her was released on his own recognizance in Santa Barbara Superior Court Monday morning.
The district attorney's office says Nathaniel McKnight, 24, was also ordered to enroll in anger management counseling, parenting classes, abstain from illegal drugs, drug testing and have no contact with the infant.
Police say officers were called to Cottage Hospital two weekends ago when the 3-month-old baby was brought in with hemorrhaging on the brain. McKnight later admitted to shaking the baby because she wouldn't stop crying.
McKnight is due back in court Feb. 27.
