61-year-old Allan Mann Jr. was charged with abducting his 2-year-old son back in 1987 and appeared before a judge on Monday. He pleaded not guilty during the trial.
His son was found in Vernon, Connecticut last month after investigators received a tip.
Authorities say Mann lied about his identity when he tried to get health care and housing help form the federal government.
Mann’s son, who is now 33, was reunited with his mother.
