No indictment against 'Tan Mom' in New Jersey

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The criminal saga for the New Jersey woman who became known as the "Tan Mom" is now over. A grand jury in Essex County, N.J., has declined to charge her with a crime.

Patricia Krentcil, of Nutley, got into trouble with the law began after staff at her 5-year-old daughter's school noticed burns on the little girl's legs. The girl reportedly told authorities she got them from being in the tanning booth with her mother.

That led police to Krentcil, whose heavily tanned face was then plastered across newspapers and magazines across the country. She spoke openly about her love of tanning salons but did deny bringing her daughter to one.

Officials didn't buy it, so they charged her with child endangerment because anyone under 14 using a tanning booth is illegal.

Now those charges have been dropped, and Krentcil is free to go anywhere. She told a London newspaper she wants to leave the Garden State and move to a place like London where people are less small-minded. The paper reported that she she said she wants to start selling her own line of tanning lotion.
