mother arrested for taking 5 year old to tanning booth?

3 May

the perils of tanning booths has been greatly highlighted recently, the biggest problem is addictions that arise from these sort of things..

all harm that we may do to our bodies may be tolerated in moderation.. however.. arresting this woman may be useless… this is a woman that needs a lot of help – looking at the colour should show that she has severe body dis morphia of some sort.. i feel sad for these sort of people…

so this is how the story goes:

A New Jersey woman arrested after police said she brought her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth said  Wednesday that she was innocent of the charges but admits to excessive tanning herself.

Patricia Krentcil, 44, pleaded not guilty to second-degree child endangerment and said outside court that she is a “wonderful mother.”
Asked whether she admits to excessive tanning, Krentcil said “yes,” but insisted she would never subject her red-haired, fair-skinned daughter to the heat of a tanning bed.

The girl, who authorities said suffered a sunburn from the tanning booth, was allowed to stay in the home but is now being monitored by state child welfare workers.

Krentcil insists her daughter was never exposed to the tanning booth’s UV rays and instead got slightly sunburned while playing outside on a warm day.

The girl’s father told NBC 4 New York that his daughter told classmates at school that she “went tanning with Mommy.” He thinks a teacher overheard, inaccurately connected the girl’s sunburn to the tanning salon trip and contacted police.
