PHOENIX -- A court commissioner decided Thursday that a Phoenix woman can have supervised visits with the young sons that she told police were left in a hot car when she couldn't find a baby sitter during a job interview.

Shanesha Taylor, 35, can have contact with her 2-year-old and 6-month-old sons if a Child Protective Services worker is present, the Maricopa County Superior Court commissioner said.

Taylor was arrested March 20 after bystanders reported seeing her children alone in her car in Scottsdale. Authorities said the temperature inside the car was over 100 degrees.

Taylor told investigators that she didn't have anyone to watch her children. She has drawn sympathy from people who see her as a single mother trying to get work.

Taylor's trial on two felony child abuse charges was set for Sept. 4. She has pleaded not guilty.
