Jon Bon Jovi's daughter is going free!
Well, not completely free- after her overdose, she still has a tough rehab period to get through- but all charges for drug and paraphernalia possession against Stephanie Rose Bongiovi and her friend Ian Grant have been dropped!
So why is the rocker's daughter getting off so easily? Is the prosecutor a fan of Wanted: Dead Or Alive?
Well, of course he is! Who isn't? But the charges are actually being dropped because of a special loophole in New York's drug enforcement law. District Attorney Ian McNamara says:
"By law, they have immunity. I can’t prosecute them even if I wanted to. To proceed would be highly inappropriate and highly unethical, and would jeopardize my opportunity to practice in the future."
So what is this special immunity??
Well, if someone calls for emergency help in an overdose situation, they are legally immune to prosecution! This keeps people from having to decide between going to jail and letting their friends die.
Well, we're happy for Stephanie, but we hope she gets the help she needs!
Dad has been in rock and roll for 20 years! We're guessing he knows someone who knows someone!
