The hearing lasted less than three minutes and began with Public Defender Sheneka Terry who entered a not guilty plea on Henry’s behalf.

We will waive a preliminary hearing and ask that the case go over to Superior Court,” Terry addressed the judge. “And I know that law enforcement is asking for a provision that Ms. Henry comply with all DFCS [Georgia Department of Human Services Division of Family & Children Services] instruction, and she is in agreement with that, your honor.”

The child is with his paternal grandparents, Henry does have supervised visitation rights.

Judge Ranieri bound the case over to Superior Court, ordered Henry pay a $2,500 regular bond, and ordered her to comply with all DFCS direction and orders.
