FORT MYERS, Fla.- Country music star Mindy McCready listened via telephone during a dependency hearing in a Lee County court today.
She is fighting for full custody of her son. The battle has been three years long, and the judge says there isn't much progress being made.
McCready was tested positive for several substances, including hydrocodone. She has been in and out of rehab, and only sees her child about twice a year.
The child's father, Billy McKnight, was in the courtroom today fighting his own custody battle. He has missed four drug screenings, but says he was at a funeral for atleast one of them.
The judge said the child will stay with McCready's mother until the two clean up their acts. If they don't, the child will not be reunited with his mother or father.
