Jon Bon Jovi
's daughter will not face criminal prosecution after allegedly overdosing on heroin in a college dorm yesterday -- because the D.A. has dropped all charges.

A rep for the Oneida County District Attorney's Office says it is dismissing all criminal charges against Jon's 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Bongiovi as well as the 21-year-old male student allegedly involved with Stephanie's overdose.

TMZ broke the story ... Stephanie was arrested after being treated by emergency medical personnel following the alleged overdose at a Hamilton College dormitory. Cops claim a drug task force found small quantities of heroin in the dorm room ... along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Stephanie was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia. The 21-year-old was also charged with drug possession. 

The D.A. says the charges were dropped because of a New York law that specifically prohibits prosecution of people experiencing a drug overdose -- as well as the people who help them seek medical care.

Who said no ones above the law? You know the old saying fame and money walks and talks. Now if that was some poor slob he would be sitting in jail with a millon $ bond.

If you ever thought there is a different set of laws for the 1% this should confirm it. I feel sorry for the young girl's problem but worse for those jailed for less but cannot afford a high priced lawyer to get them off. Justice is NOT blind.

Ah Jon........... it pays to pay up........ so afraid your image and that of your band will be affected.. the band who says they don't like their dirty laundry aired.... your daughter could have died... instead of buying your way of of this, why not practice some tough love and let her do a little jail time if need be. It just might be the thing that saves her life... Oh wait ,you are going on tour in 2013.... Can't let a little over-dose overshadow that...
