Surveillance video showed she'd been shopping for about 45 minutes at Nordstrom while the 11-week-old babies were in the car unattended at about 4 p.m. on Feb. 8, police said.
Nejat was charged with two felony counts of child endangerment -- one for each of the twins -- and was released on bond. In court June 21, she entered a plea of no contest to one misdemeanor count of child endangerment, and was ordered to be on good behavior for two years, when the charges would be dropped, according to Teresa Drennick, a spokeswoman for the Alameda County District Attorneys office.
Nejat is also subject to a search clause so officials can check on the welfare of the children.
In addition, Drennick said, Nejat must complete 52 counseling sessions and 26 parenting classes.
She must also pay a $1,000 fine and stay away from Nordstrom.
