TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey tanning salon
frequented by a woman accused of taking her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning booth has been fined $5,200 for numerous alleged violations, including overexposure.

State health officials notified City Tropics Tanning 2's owner on Monday.

Inspectors accuse them of 33 violations, mostly related to one patron who allegedly was permitted 24 tanning sessions in March. Inspectors say the patron - whose name was not disclosed - should
have been allowed only one session per week.

The Nutley salon's owner contests the violations. Anthony Ruccatano says if tanning is limited to once per week, salons would go out of business.

A health official says the inspection was based on news coverage of the deeply tanned Patricia Krentcil, who faces a child endangerment charge. Krentcil denies wrongdoing.
