Danville Mom Must Avoid Nordstrom, Study Parenting, Pay Fine

Poll: Amanda Nejat is the Danville mom who left her twin infants in her SUV while she returned items to a Nordstrom in Pleasanton. She was sentenced Thursday. What do you think?

 

The Amanda Nejat case came to a conclusion Thursday in the Alameda County Superior Court in Pleasanton.

The 46-year-old Danville mother, who left her 11-week-old twins in her Escalade while she returned items to Nordstrom, was ordered by Judge Jacob Blea to stay away from the Pleasanton retailer, take parenting classes and pay a $1,000 fine, the Mercury News reported.

Nejat pleaded not guilty in March to two counts of child endangerment but switched to no contest as part of the plea deal, the Merc report stated.

The plea also requires Nejat to take 26 parenting classes and 52 counseling sessions.

If Nejat sticks to the plea, the judgment could be expunged after two years.

Pleasanton Police arrested after someone noticed in a parked Cadillac Escalade in the Stoneridge Mall parking lot.

The witness called police and mall security and when the mother — who turned out to be Nejat — returned, she was arrested.

Based on security camera footage, Pleasanton Police officer Larry Cox said the infants were left alone for at least 40 minutes.

Nejat was arrested on the spot. Her husband picked up the babies and took them home, Cox said.

The children do not need to be taken away from her mother. Her mother obviously needs help. Parenting courses and counseling are right on! It seems to me that this woman has an addiction to shopping or some other problem. Those babies need a healthy mother, hopefully she gets the help she needs so they can grow up normal!

This woman is ridiculous. Even though I had no help and had to take care of any and all shopping needs for our family, I never left my babies alone in a car EVER--the idea is insane. Kids are not accessories. They have to be your priority 24/7 and being pretty and shopping/returning and all that takes a back seat. Not to mention that we can get most anything online anyways. Based on her age and the fact that they are twins means there is a strong possibility that she had them via surrogacy or in vitro. All that effort and she leaves them in the car at 11 weeks old for 40 minutes? It's literally obscene.
