Probation Charge Dropped Against Tan Mom In Separate Case
Court officials say the New Jersey tanning mom accused of taking her then-5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth
is no longer on probation in a separate case.
Patricia Krentcil is free on $2,500 bond on the child endangerment charge.
The arrest in Nutley got the attention of authorities in Camden County. That's where Krentcil was sentenced to five years' probation in 1999 for credit card theft, forgery and theft for writing bad checks. In 2001, a bench warrant was issued for her failure to appear at a probation hearing.
Court officials in Camden County on Friday say her probation had been terminated and she would not be required to appear in court.
Krentcil is due back in court next month in the tanning case. She says she never took her daughter into a booth.
