PHOENIX – A homeless mother who left her kids in the car while she attended a job interviewshanesha-taylor found some relief on Thursday when a pre-trial hearing granted her supervised contact with her children.

The Phoeniz, Ariz. woman, Shanesha Taylor, can now see her 8-month-old and 2-year-old sons.

Taylor, 35, has been barred from seeing them since her March 20 arrest in Scottsdale.

“This is a big victory for the defense,” attorney Benjamin Taylor said. “My client is looking forward to seeing her kids once again.”

Her tearful mug shοt went viral when a Good Samaritan started a charity fundraising campaign on Taylor’s behalf. Hoping to raise money for legal defense, the campaign raised more than $100,000.

Police were called and waiting when Taylor left her children in her Dodge Durango for 45 minutes while in a Farmers Insurance office in Scottsdale. Taylor told police she was jobless, without child care that day and had occasionally been homeless, according to published reports.

“This case is bigger than her,” Benjamin Taylor said. “Many people can relate to Mrs. Taylor’s circumstances. This sheds light on the poverty many people in this country face.”

He said that his client is thankful for all the support she has received and that the money will go toward building the future of her children. Taylor has already used a portion of the funds to find a safe place to live, he said, according to a report by the USA Today.

“The public, in the rush to judge her, has lost sight that she has served her country,” the Rev. Jarrett Maupin said. “A veteran has fallen through the safety net.”

Taylor served in the Air Force for several years before being honorably discharged, he said.

Taylor was released from jail March 31 and still faces two felony counts. Her children are now with family and under the supervision of the Division of Child and Family Services.

Taylor has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, she faces a minimum of two years of probation for each count.

“This isn’t over,” Benjamin Taylor said. “We still have the felony charges hanging over her head.”
