Aisling Brady McCarthy has good reason to sue over the baby murder trial, according to one lawyer

Irish nanny Aisling Brady McCarthy says she is considering legal action against US prosecutors.

The 37-year-old from Cavan was wrongly charged with the murder of a one-year-old baby who was in her care in 2013.

She spent two years in prison in the US, and is now back home in Ireland.

Aisling has told the Boston Globe newspaper that she wants to take a civil action against Newton and Middlesex District Attorney.

Elaine Whitfield-Sharp, is the trial lawyer who defended British nanny Louise Woodward, says Aisling should go ahead with the action.

Ms Whitfield-Sharp said: "I say do it and here's why. First of all she'll never get over this, ever.

"Meanwhile she has to document her damages, she probably has some post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Obviously she went through some humiliation and shame and there will be physical repercussions from all this emotional trauma."
