“I took it with me because I had no place to leave it. I left it because I was breastfeeding all the way. The baby was tired. He fell asleep when we got there. I went to get some things and will come back. There were a lot of people at the checkout, that’s why I was late, ” said the defendant, a mother of three minor children, in her apology.
