He is on trial for first- and second-degree assault for allegdly battering and bruising the child between September and November 2012.
“I participated in things I felt was wrong and I was uncomfortable with. I still allowed these things to happen,” Linscott said on Monday morning.

Another video showed the tot on his stomach and moaning in the empty bathtub. Dow can be heard saying, “James you need to get up! You need to get up! You need to get up. You’re hurting yourself.”
