Mom Feels Her 5 Year Old Daughter Needs More Color.
A New Jersey mom denies that her 5-year-old daughter's sunburn was caused by a trip to atanning salon. Patricia Krentcil told NBC that she brought her child along to the salon, but the girl was never exposed to UV rays in the booth.
"I tan, she doesn't tan," Krentcil said on NBC. "I'm in the booth, she's in the room. That's all there is to it."
The girl's father Rich Krentcil said his daughter was sunburned from playing outside on a hot day.
The Essex County Prosecutor's office charged the mother, 44-year-old Nutley resident Patricia Krentcil, with second-degree child endangerment. If found guilty, Krentcil could wind up behind bars where the sun doesn't shine.
