Jon Bon Jovi's daughter Stephanie Bongiovi, who was arrested Wednesday after a suspected heroin overdose in her college dorm, found herself off the legal hook Thursday after charges were dropped. Bongiovi, a student at Hamilton College, benefited from of a 2011 New York state law that prohibits prosecution of folks who OD or who call for help in a life-threatening, drug-related situation, according to the Utica Observer-Dispatch . "By law, they have immunity. I can't prosecute them even if I wanted to," Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara told the Observer-Dispatch, saying the quick decision to drop the charges had nothing to do with the case's celebrity element.
