'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.

Is that a pic of Lindsay Lohan in 10 years or the hooker that the oompa loompas pass around on Saturday night?

First Casey Anthony, now Tanning Mom, next Jodie Arias. Faith in humanity wavering.

All those people who keep insisting that everyone needs a tan and a tan always looks healthy need to take at good look at Tanning Mom here - she looks 70, a rough 70. Some people really should stay pale.

Why is she wearing BCBG all the time? She sure has some doughs and good taste in clothing but she surely is cheapening the brand!!! They look too sophisticated for her white trash antics

The kid was just sitting waiting for mom. Should have never even been investigated, what a waste of resources.
