Mom of children found in NJ storage may avoid jail
EWING, N.J. - April 23, 2013 (WPVI) -- The mother of two children found living for a month in a 5-by-10 foot storage unit in central New Jersey may avoid jail time.
The Times of Trenton reports 27-year-old Sheena Johnson may be considered for a pre-trial intervention program that sets conditions to keep a defendant out of jail.
Johnson was arraigned Monday in Ewing. She does not yet have a lawyer.
Johnson was arrested in Trenton last week after police said she had slashed an ex-boyfriend's tires. When police asked if she had any dependents as part of routine questioning, she said her children were waiting for a bus near a storage facility in nearby Ewing.
An officer checked the facility and found a 5-year-old and 10-year-old living in the unit that Johnson had rented.
