Father didn't abuse boy kept in a box
GALVESTON, TEXAS- A jury says a man is not guilty of abusing his eleven-year-old son by keeping him locked in a wooden box.
The jury says he didn't injure his child and use unlawful restraint. The boy testified he was allowed out of the box for school, meals and to use the bathroom.
The father's lawyers argued to the jury the man was forced to lock the boy in the box due to his erratic behavior brought on by mood and behavioral disorders.
The box was made of particleboard and was 8-by-6 in size.
The man wasn't named to protect the identity of the boy, who now lives with his mother in Wisconsin.
