PHOENIX, Ariz. (KPNX) – A woman whose mugshot photo went viral is in hot water.

Shanesha Taylor made headlines after she left her young children in a vehicle during a job interview.

Taylor said the person who was supposed to babysit her kids canceled at the last-minute and she wasn’t able to find anyone else to help.

Taylor was arrested on suspicion of child abuse and her children were placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

After learning about her story, strangers set up a donation website to help pay for her legal fees.

More than $114,775 was donated to help Taylor.

Now, Taylor is in hot water again.

According to KPNX, she failed to meet a deadline to deposit $40,000 in her children’s trust funds.

She was given a deal that would drop all the felony charges against her if she completed substance abuse classes, parenting classes and put $40,000 of the donations in the trust funds.

Taylor says she disagreed with the terms of the trust funds, which would only go to the children if they went to college.

“I can move the money over and put it into place, but if doesn’t take care of the children, it’s futile,” Taylor said. “It would lock them out of their money if they didn’t go to college.”

Also, she says Thursday’s deadline was moved up too quickly and her bank wouldn’t allow her to transfer more than $20,000 in a month.
