Tanning booth mom calls arrest for taking daughter, 5, a misunderstanding: ‘It was a sunburn’
Yahoo! News ^ | May 2, 2012 | Dylan Stableford

A New Jersey woman arrested for allegedly putting her 5-year-old daughter in a tanning booth says it was all a big misunderstanding.

Patricia Krentcil, 44, told NBC's local New York affiliate that she took her daughter with her to a local tanning salon but that the child was not exposed to the booth's synthetic UV rays.

"I tan, she doesn't tan," Krentcil said. "I'm in the booth, she's in the room. That's all there is to it."

Krentcil, of Nutley, N.J., was arrested last week, and charged Tuesday with felony child endangerment. She was released on a $25,000 bond and is due in court Wednesday.

"It's like taking your daughter to go food shopping," Krentcil said. "There's tons of moms that bring their children in."

Police, though, say Krentcil put her daughter in an upright tanning booth.

New Jersey state law prohibits children under the age of 14 from tanning booths. Children between the ages of 14 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

We have laws for SO many things. Now this lady may have her child taken from her, as well as having a very tough time getting or maintaining a job.

What ever happened to simply havIng people say, “Is that a wise thing to do with your child?”. Now, people are fined and jailed.

Freakin’ liberal state!

These women don’t look attractive to me;and they are likely to get skin cancer in later life.

Tanning booths are just another indicator of how weird modern life has become.

OMG, this women is nuts. Did you see what she did to her face in the video? Her face looks like a steak that's been on the grill too long.

How can someone do that to themselves?

A woman with an ordinary tan is gross enough—but this dame is completely insane.

Don't be talking about colored people that way.

Even our president is a pale motherf****er if he doesn't get some sunlight now and then. Look at his tanlines where his shirt and watch were.

She should use Blue Ribbon Oil. It worked on my baseball glove that I left out in the yard all winter when I was a kid.
Actually my glove looked better.

The thing is that her original arrest photo does not have this color on it. She looks normally tanned.

The comments are PRICELESS!!!!

"thats not tanning, thats deep fried"

"How much for the talking leather couch?"

"I have had turkeys that I have cooked that did not brown that well."

"Even burnt toast thinks this lady has gone too far."

"This reminds me of Yosmetie Sam getting his face blown up by cannon fire from Bugs Bunny!"

"That is scary, and i work in a morgue"

"Willy Wonka called. You're late for work!"

I think this woman very likely has a lot of problems. She seems to be insane.

I always remember a woman I saw at Jones beach, it must be 40 years ago, more probably. Her skin was so dried out and wrinkled and brown from tanning. I asked my mother what was wrong with her. She barely looked alive.

So creepy.

“The thing is that her original arrest photo does not have this color on it”

I know, it’s weird. I watched two videos, in one she just looks a bit over-tanned, but in the second she looks like a monster. But there it is, a live video with the kid and reporter in it and everything.

Could the news have done some “Time Magazine OJ job” on her, made her look that much darker?

If it was a still photo I’d find it easier to believe, but I wouldn’t put it past them.

What did she do? Run to the tanning booth as soon as she got out of court, hoping to boost an insanity defense?

We've seen Patricia by herself. Here she is with the redheaded, light-skinned five-year-old daughter police say she put in the upright tanning booth.

I did a little image searching and this woman is not that dark as in the photo attached to the article....

I think someone is misrepresenting what she really looks like....With a little photoshop...

She has a serious tan.... Too serious....But she doesn’t look like a leather glove....

Also she is being railroaded by the authorities.....
