CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) – A lawyer was arrested after allegedly leaving her children in the car while she was in court.

A passerby noticed two toddlers locked inside a car in the Riverdale Municipal Court parking lot around 8:15 a.m. Thursday.

The individual went into the courthouse and alerted an officer who checked and found the children were left unattended.

The officer went in the courthouse and made an announcement asking if anyone knew who the children belonged to.

Lawyer Kimberly Bandoh, a former magistrate judge in Clayton County, admitted the children were hers.

Bandoh was in the courtroom representing a client since at least 8 a.m.

Bandoh was arrested for leaving the children unattended in a vehicle, a misdemeanor charge. She bonded out of jail a few hours after her arrest.

The children, ages 2 and 3, were unhurt and placed in the care of another family member.
