HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — The attorney for a southwest Ohio couple accused of abandoning the adopted 9-year-old son they raised since infancy says the case has had some positive results.

Attorney Anthony VanNoy said Wednesday that Cleveland and Lisa Cox are visiting with the boy and hope to be reunited.

VanNoy tells the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News that the couple will not accept any plea deals. They have pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of nonsupport of dependents, which allege they recklessly abandoned or failed to provide adequate support for the boy.

Authorities say they returned him to Butler County Children Services in October without telling him he wouldn't return home.

VanNoy says the boy is now getting the help that the adoptive parents have always wanted for him.
