Like sunburn, 'Tan Mom' arrest fades away

  • Patricia Krentcil's daughter showed up to school with sunburn
  • Grand jury decides not to indict her on child endangerment charges
Like sunburn, 'Tan Mom' arrest fades away

"Tan Mom" won't be going to jail after all.

Remember Patricia Krentcil? She was accused of child endangerment last year when her 5-year-old daughter showed up to school with a sunburn.

Krentcil told officials she did not take her kid to a tanning booth, but she did admit spending a lot of time there herself.

HLN affiliate WCBS reports a grand jury in New Jersey has sided with her and dropped the charges Tuesday.
