Case against tanned NJ mom sent to grand jury
CAMDEN, N.J. - June 4, 2012 (WPVI) -- Authorities have referred the case of the New Jersey mom accused of taking her young daughter into a tanning booth to a grand jury.
Patricia Krentcil was previously scheduled to appear in court Monday for a hearing on a child endangerment charge. That hearing was canceled once the case was sent to the grand jury.
The 44-year-old, who is bronzed-colored from frequent tanning, has pleaded not guilty.
Krentcil is accused of taking her daughter, who was 5 at the time, into a tanning booth in April. Krentcil said her daughter's burn came from the sun on an unusually warm day and that she would never take the girl into a tanning booth.
It's against New Jersey law for anyone under 14 to use a tanning booth.
