TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The mother of two children who were living periodically in a 5-by-10-foot unit at a New Jersey storage facility has been sentenced to probation.

Sheena Johnson apologized at her sentencing Friday.

The 28-year-old Ewing woman received 4 years' probation under an agreement in which she agreed to plead guilty to child abuse and contempt charges.

Johnson initially was charged with child endangerment after her sons, then ages 5 and 10, were found in the storage facility last April. Officers checked the facility after she was arrested for slashing her ex-boyfriend's tires.

The Times of Trenton reports (http://bit.ly/1jE5ygh ) Johnson thanked the judge for giving her a second chance.

Johnson's children remain in foster care. She gets supervised visits with them and says she plans to regain custody as soon as possible.
