Court to hear case of boy dropped off in Nebraska

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- A custody hearing for a Smyrna woman who dropped off her 12-year-old son at a Nebraska hospital under the state's safe haven law has been rescheduled again.

The hearing was scheduled for Thursday in Cobb County, Ga., Juvenile Court, but it was postponed until Dec. 11. The woman, 33-year-old Tysheema Brown, also 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.
