Yesterday the whole world sat up from their collective tanning bed, took the cucumbers out of their eyes, and shook their head in disgust over the tale of New Jersey’s Patricia Krentcil, the 40-year-old mother who stands accused of trying to give her 6-year-old a nice base color.
Today was Ms. Krentcil’s court date, and of course TMZ was there to capture Mr. Krentcil sounding like a completely in-control person who should be allowed to have custody over her daughter.
You know, they say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but in this case we’re pretty sure that the charred shell speaks for itself. Patricia Krentcil of New Jersey stands accused of putting her 6-year-old daughter, Anna, into a tanning bed after teachers at her school discovered burn marks on the child’s body. Ms. Krentcil, who faces charges of child endangerment, says that the burns come from her daughter playing around in natural sunlight, something which the 44-year-old obviously know a lot about.
