    A New Jersey mother charged with child endangerment last month after she and her two sons were found living in a storage locker has been freed from prison.
     
    The Times of Trenton reports 27-year-old Sheena Johnson was freed Saturday after community members joined forces to raise bail money, hoping to give her a chance to start her life anew.
     
    Authorities say Johnson had rented the unit at the storage facility in Ewing. Police found bags of clothing and other household items inside, along with a mattress and a backpack. 
     
    Officers initially checked the facility after Johnson was arrested for allegedly slashing her ex-boyfriend's tires and she told them her kids were waiting for a bus near a storage lot.
     
    Johnson's sons, ages 5 and 10, remain in state custody.
