Missing Mom in Court

A Garden City woman who left her three-year-old son home alone while she went out partying was in court today. Police arrested Mary Kiser last Thursday for contributing to the delinquency and deprivation of a minor.

At first police thought that someone kidnapped her. But after searching all day, they found Kiser inside the Arby's restaurant on US Highway 80.

Since her arrest, Kiser has checked into a drug rehab program, so today police reduced her charges to a city ordinance violation. They also put her on probation for a year.

Her son is staying with his grandparents.
