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.
