Stephanie Bongiovi: Drug charge dropped

Saturday November 17, 2012

CLINTON, N.Y. -- A central New York prosecutor says drug charges against Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter have been dropped.

Stephanie Bongiovi was found unresponsive by medics after she apparently overdosed on heroin in a Ham ilton College dorm early Wednesday.

Town of Kirkland police charged Bongiovi, of Red Bank, N.J., and another student with possession of a small amount of heroin and marijuana. Oneida

County District At torney Scott McNa mara said Thurs day he was dismissing the charges against both students. Under state law, someone having
a drug overdose or seeking help for an overdose victim can’t be prosecuted for
having a small amount of hero in or any amount of marijuana.

Bon Jovi has not commented on his daughter.
