A priest accused of sexually abusing an altar boy during the 1980s has denied the charge, his attorney said Thursday.

A hearing took place Thursday in New Haven Superior Court in the case involving sexual abuse allegations against the Rev. Stephen Bzdyra, a local Roman Catholic priest.

Former Supreme Court Justice Robert I. Berdon presided over the court hearing for Bzdyra, who has been suspended from his role as pastor of St. Augustine Church, 35 Washington Ave. No ruling was issued.

William Dotson, 35, of New Haven, and another man, who lives in Watertown but has chosen not to reveal his identity, have accused Bzdyra of sexually abusing them.
