NUTLEY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey woman said she felt vindicated Tuesday night, after a grand jury decided not to indict her for allegedly letting her young daughter into a tanning booth.
As CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis reported, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray announced Tuesday that a grand jury let Patricia Krentcil, the so-called “Tanning Mom,” off the hook.
Krentcil, 44, said while she is satisfied with the outcome, she is still hurt.
“What this world did, this past year, made a mockery of me, and I don’t appreciate that,” she said.
She and her husband stood on the steps of their home in Nutley on Tuesday, hours after the grand jury’s decision.
Last year, with a much deeper tan, she was accused of tanning her then-5-year-old daughter, Anna. She denied the claim.
