Criminal Charges Against Jon Bon Jovi’s Daughter Dropped in Heroine Arrest
TMZ reports that the criminal drug charges against Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter she was facing after allegedly overdosing on heroin in a college dorm have been dropped.
A representative for the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office says they are dismissing all criminal charges against the 19-year-old daughter of Jon Bon Jovi, Stephanie Bongiovi. Charges were also reportedly dropped against the 21-year-old male student that was also allegedly involved with the overdose.
Stephanie was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia. The 21-year-old male was also charged with drug possession.
According to the report, the DA dropped the charges because of a New York law that specifically prohibits prosecution of people experiencing a drug overdose as well as the people who help them seek medical care.
