MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A Smyrna woman who dropped off her
12-year-old son at a Nebraska hospital under the state's safe haven
law is scheduled to go to court on Thursday in an attempt to regain
custody.

The woman, 33-year-old Tysheema Brown, is scheduled to appear in
Cobb County Juvenile Court in a case that was continued more than a
month ago.

Brown has said she was worried her son would end up in jail if she didn't do something drastic to address his unruly behavior.

Officials with Boys Town High School, a school for troubled youths, have said they are talking with Brown about enrolling her son there.

Brown graduated from Boys Town in the 1990s.

The boy has been in state custody since returning to Georgia in
late October.
