The man convicted of torching his 6-year-old son in a motel room denied he violated his parole this week by ducking out of an Oakland doughnut shop to elude a corrections agent.

Charles Rothenberg said he was looking for a job and did not violate conditions of his parole when he disappeared for four hours last Monday.``I now believe I've been set up!' Rothenberg said in a letter to the Los Angeles Times.

Rothenberg set fire to his son, David, in a Buena Park motel room in March 1983 after a telephone argument in which his estranged wife said he would not be allowed to see the boy again.
