'Tanning Mom' Speaks Out After Jury Finds Her Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey's "tanning mom" is back in the news after a big win in court.

Last year, Patricia Krentcil was arrested after a school nurse told cops she noticed a burn on Krentcil's 5-year-old daughter's leg.

According to the nurse, the child said she got it from tanning with her mom.

The arrest has since spun a media frenzy.

But on Tuesday a grand jury found her not guilty of child endangerment.

Krentcil had some parting words now that the case is closed. She spoke to reporters from outside of her New Jersey home (see the video clip above to hear what she said).

But is "tanning mom's" story really fading away?

Krentcil says there is going to be a movie coming out about her.

And the London Sun reports she is buying a flat and moving to London.
