Dr. Richard Kaplan told jurors on Tuesday that he would rather have been playing with children than testifying in the trial of Michael Tahtinen, who is accused of murdering 11-month-old Connor Robison.

Kaplan is a medical expert in "child abuse pediatrics." He said children are his passion. In his specialty, Kaplan tries to assess injuries in children and determine whether they are the result of abuse.
