DETROIT (AP) -- An organization supporting a Detroit mother involved in a standoff with police over the removal of her physically handicapped daughter from her home has planned a community rally.
The "Maryanne Godboldo (god-BOWL'-doh) SpeakOut" is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday at the Historic Little Rock Resource Center in Detroit.
Godboldo faces charges of discharging a weapon, felonious assault, and obstructing an officer for the 12-hour March standoff with police. A preliminary examination is scheduled July 25.
Godboldo says officers failed to produce a warrant when they came to her home to remove her 13-year-old daughter.
Her daughter was placed in a psychiatric hospital and later released to relatives after Godboldo was arrested. Godboldo has said the issue is over her refusal to continue her daughter on the anti-psychotic drug Risperdal.
