Mother Arrested For Putting 5-year-old In Tanning Booth

Police charged 44-year-old Patricia Krentcil for second degree child endangerment.

She allegedly allowed her 5-year-old daughter inside a tanning booth.

Krentcil claims her daughter suffered sunburns from playing outside on a hot day and not from the tanning salon. The girl’s father, Rich Krentcil backs up her story.

If Krentcil is found guilty of the charges, she can end up behind bars.

She was arrested after school officials called police to report severe burns on the kindergarten girl.

The tanning salon owner and staff were not charged. Police believed Krentcil snuck her daughter in without the staff’s knowledge.

    I think this story is kind of ironic.. It’s ok to have two to 6 year old kids being paraded around in full make-up and barely there clothing.. And yet THIS causes an out cry..
