The case of the New Jersey mom accused of taking her young daughter into a tanning booth has been referred to a grand jury.
Patricia Krentcil was previously scheduled to appear in court today for a hearing on a child endangerment charge. That hearing was canceled once the case was sent to the grand jury.
The 44-year-old has pleaded not guilty.
Krentcil is accused of taking her daughter, who was 5 at the time, into a tanning booth in April. Krentcil said her daughter's burn came from the sun on an unusually warm day and that she would never take the girl into a tanning booth.
It's against New Jersey law for anyone under 14 to use a tanning booth.
