NUTLEY, N.J. – A grand jury has refused to indict the New Jersey “tanning mom” for unlawfully letting her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth.
Fox News reports that Patricia Krentcil no longer faces a child endangerment charge.
Krentcil yelled, “Cha-ching!” to reporters outside her Nutley home after hearing the news, according to Fox.
She said her life has been a “living hell,” and she plans to move to London for a year while her children and husband remain in New Jersey.
The 44-year-old was arrested last year for second-degree child endangerment after school officials reported that the kindergartener had a severe sunburn.
Krentcil denied exposing her daughter to a tanning bed.
When she was asked what she learned from the ordeal, Krentcil replied, “People suck.”
