Woman accused of leaving kids in car to enter plea

Oakland mother Phaley Nget, 37, is accused of leaving her children locked in the car while she gambled at an East Bay casino.

An Oakland woman accused of leaving her two kids in a hot car while she gambled inside a casino is scheduled to enter a plea Monday morning.

It happened last week on North Canyons Parkway in Pleasanton.

Phaley Nget, 37, was inside Casino 580 when police found her two daughters -- ages 2 and 3 -- inside a locked car strapped in their car seats.

Luckily, the children weren't injured.

The woman's attorney says she went into the casino to use the restroom.

Her bail was set at a $100,000.
