Patricia Krentcil, "Tanning Mom," longs to move to London, report says
(CBS) NUTLEY, N.J. - Patricia Krentcil, the New Jersey "tanning mom" accused of putting her 6-year-old daughter in a stand-up tanning booth, is looking to move to London, The London Sun reports.
"I need to get out of this place so I can regain my freedom and live my life the way I want to. There's no future for me here," Krentcil said, according to the paper.
Krentcil reportedly wants to start selling her own tanning lotion in the U.K. and longs to live a more a peaceful life, the paper reports.
"To me, London is the perfect place. Nobody will know us and, unlike in New Jersey, I think people are more educated and less small-minded," she reportedly said.
The 44-year-old Krentcil pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges in May 2012. She said the whole situation was a big misunderstanding, adding that she would never take her daughter into a tanning booth.
Krentcil said that when the school nurse asked her daughter how she got burned, she said, "I go tanning with mommy." However, the woman said her daughter's burn was not from getting into a tanning bed, but from being outside and playing the backyard.
