LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A suburban Chicago woman has been sentenced to one year of probation after two of her children were found last June bound and blindfolded in a Walmart parking lot in Kansas.

Deborah Gomez of Northlake, Ill., pleaded no contest in December to three counts of child endangerment. Her husband, Adolfo Gomez, has pleaded no contest to two counts of child abuse and three counts of child endangerment.

Both parents have been in custody since they were arrested after a woman at a Lawrence Walmart reported seeing two children bound and blindfolded near the family's vehicle.

Douglas County Judge Paula Martin sentenced Deborah Gomez on Wednesday to a year of probation. If she violates probation, Gomez will have to serve three years in jail.

Sentencing for Adolfo Gomez is next month.
