DETROIT -- The case is like a legal hot potato, being dropped, handed off and repeatedly reheated by Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.
The charges are against 61-year-old Maryanne Godboldo, a Detroit mother whose fight with Child Protective Services in March of 2011 led to a 10-hour police standoff.
The mother claims the incident was spurred by Child Protective Services ordering her to medicate her daughter, and a subsequent custody removal when she refused.
The case has been dismissed twice by the Wayne County District Court and appealed three times by Worthy's office. In January, the Court of Appeals kicked the case back down to the District Court for a third look.
