'Tanning Mom'

Off the Hook in

Child-Tanning Case

breaking news

0226_tanning_mom_gettyTanning Mom is officially out of the hot seat with authorities ... after a grand jury refused to indict the human raisin for allegedly forcing her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning bed last year. 

Tanning Mom -- real name Patricia Krentcil -- had been arrested on suspicion of violating New Jersey's child endangerment laws ... which bans children under the age of 14 from using tanning salons.

Krentcil had denied ever bringing the kid into the tanning bed ... claiming the burn marks on her daughter's legs came from the sun ... on a really warm day.

The case went to a grand jury ... which decided there was not enough evidence to convict the 44-year-old trainwreck of a crime ... and now the case against her is dead.

The Oompa Loompas couldn't be reached for comment.

As much money as this woman has spent on maintaining her tan, might I suggest a visit to a good cosmetic dentist, a plastic surgeon for that nose would make a big difference too, forget the tan.

She's looking good these days. Tan, buff, spirited. I think Tanning Mom has a future in Hollywood.

Or at least one of those incredibly ****ed up reality shows. Sign Tanning Mom, Chyna, a medium, two NFL referees, Dennis Rodman and some North Korean former slaves. Add a jealous midget or two during sweeps week, teach them all a dance number, and open up a pawn shop in Phoenix that doesn't really sell or buy anything. That's the show.

Her actions may not have been illegal but seem somewhat immoral. Her kids should be adopted.
