Posted: Updated:

A mother of 11-week-old twins has been banned from the Nordstrom in Pleasanton, Calif., after authorities discovered she left her infant children locked inside her SUV while she shopped.

Amanda Nejat, from Danville, Calif., was arrested in February after a woman discovered the children inside the car and called the police. She has pleaded no contest to the crime on Wednesday.

According to the Contra Costa Times, the judge also barred the new mother from leaving her children unattended and required her to take 26 parenting classes and attend counseling.

Nejat, 46, refused to comment to the media.

The incident unfolded at Pleasanton's Stoneridge Mall on February 8 after a woman discovered the two crying infants in the back seat of Nejat's Cadillac Escalade. Pleasanton Police Officer Larry Cox told Danville Patch that based on security footage, it appeared Nejat had been inside Nordstrom for at least 40 minutes.

Cox said that Nejat originally told authorities she had to use the bathroom, and later admitted she returned some items to Nordstrom. Her infants were unharmed and released to the custody of their father.

Nejat's criminal conviction could be expunged if she follows the terms of her agreement for two years. For more, take a look at CBS News' video report on the case below:
