Nutley Township, New Jersey (The Weekly Vice) - Patricia Krentcil, a 44-year-old Nutley resident was jailed after she allegedly forced her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth, which resulted in serious burns.
According to the Nutley Township Police Department, officers were called to the child's school after nurses discovered that she was suffering from what appeared to be a severe sunburn. The child stated that her mother made her stand in a tanning booth with her, causing her to develop severe burns.
Investigators say Krentcil admitted to taking her daughter to a tanning booth a week prior to her arrest. Because state laws ban children under the age of 14 from tanning at a facility, she had to sneak the child into the booth without the knowledge or consent of employees.
Krentcil was booked into the Essex County Jail and charged with felony child endangerment, She was released after posting $25,000 bail.
