MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A suburban Atlanta mother who dropped her
troubled 12-year-old son off at a Nebraska hospital under the
state's unique safe-haven law is scheduled to appear in a Georgia
court.

Tysheema Brown will go before Cobb County Juvenile Court Judge
Juanita Stedman on Wednesday at 2 p.m. to find out who will have
custody of her son. Nebraska officials were expected to return the
boy to Georgia for the hearing.

The 33-year-old Brown drove left her son at Bryan LGH Medical
Center East in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday in hopes of getting help
for the boy. He is one of about two dozen children who have been
left in Nebraska under the state's new law.

Most states have such a provision for infants, but Nebraska's
has no age limit.
