The mother of a 14-year-old who went missing in mid-October will have her day in court next week.
Jamie Moore's detention hearing has been adjourned until next Tuesday. No time has been specified as of now. 
Her attorney, Durann Neil Jr., who said he was recently retained by the family, spoke on Moore’s behalf in virtual court, saying he hasn't been able to speak to his client because of her detainment and asked to meet at a later date after speaking with her. 
Jashyah Moore went missing in October and was found safe in New York City last week. Her mother is now facing abuse and neglect charges.
Officials say Jamie Moore had a history of physically abusing her daughter. Jamie Moore allegedly stabbed her daughter, sprayed bleach in her eyes, pulled her braids out and hit her on the head with a frying pan. Jamie Moore is also accused of putting her knees on the teen's neck and back, causing the teen to struggle to breathe.
Jamie Moore allegedly forced her daughter to log out of remote learning so that she could panhandle for money and take care of her younger brother. Authorities say that Jashyah Moore was not enrolled in school this year, even though she wanted to be.
Attention is now being put on other kids who are possibly facing abuse at home, and more resources are being put out for these kids.
Jashyah Moore and her 3-year-old brother are in the care of the state.
