Lawton mom charged with child neglect, says she's innocent

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton mother appeared in a Comanche County courtroom Friday, where she pleaded not guilty to a charge of child neglect.

Friday, an attorney for Brittany Copeland said she turned herself in to Lawton police on Thursday. A warrant had been issued for Copeland's arrest Thursday morning, following a child neglect investigation.

Police first questioned Copeland in early November after her 8-year-old son behaved violently in school. Court documents showed the child was taken to a behavioral center where he tested positive for cocaine. He told specialists he got the drug from his mom's bedroom.

Copeland's attorney said the cocaine belonged to her former roommate and there were text messages to prove it.

Copeland is being held on a $20,000 bond.
