A throw back to the 1997 incident involving English Nanny Louise Woodward when she shook a baby violently to death, was charged with second degree murder, and later had the case appealed and reduced the sentence to manslaughter, causing her to serve less than 300 days in prison instead of life.

One is labeled a "British Nanny" when they commit a similar act to someone in a generally disadvantaged position.
