Bon Jovi daughter drug charges dropped

November 19, 2012

Jon Bon Jovi‘s daughter won’t face charges following her drugs overdose. Stephanie Bongiovi, 19, was arrested after being found unresponsive in her college dormitory. A second person was also charged after police found heroin, marijuana and drugs paraphernalia on the premises. But District Attorney Scott McNamara has dismissed the charges, citing New York’s “Good Samaritan 911 law.” It says anyone suffering an overdose, or seeking help for someone else who’s overdosed, can’t be prosecuted for possessing small amounts of heroin. The statute was designed to reduce deaths by removing fear of arrest from those in need of assistance.
