WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has taken the stand at his trial in Connecticut to try to limit the damages he must pay for calling the Sandy Hook school shooting a hoax.

Jones took the stand Thursday in Waterbury.

The trial is to decide damages for an FBI agent who responded to the school and the families of eight children and adults who died who sued Jones for defamation.
