A 37-year-old man took the witness stand Thursday to deny charges that he had sexually abused his own son.
The boy, now 8, testified a day earlier in Baltimore County Circuit Court that his father had sought certain acts as “punishment” when the boy misbehaved.

The man was charged with sexual abuse of a minor, assault and two sexual-offense counts.
