Bon Jovi’s Daughter Escapes Drug Charges Through “Good Samaritan” Law

Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, is off the hook after overdosing.

She no longer faces… drug charges because of New York’s law applying to overdose cases in which there was a call for help, according to the Observer Dispatch, a local newspaper from Oneida County, New York.

Bongiovi and a male pal were arrested this week on drug possession charges after officers found heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her dorm room.

Yesterday, the misdemeanor charges against both were dropped because of a 2011 amendment to the New York penal code exempting people from possession charges if they had sought help for somebody experiencing a “drug or alcohol overdose or other life-threatening medical emergency.”

The so-called “Good Samaritan” section of the law applies to the Bongiovi case because her friend had called for help for the rocker’s daughter as she suffered a possible overdose.

Do you agree with laws such as this, which decriminalize drug offenses ? Leave me your thoughts in the comments section below…
