(Newser) – Madlyn Primoff, the New York lawyer who gained notoriety when she kicked her squabbling kids out of the car last month, will likely not face legal repercussions, the Journal News reports. Though she faces a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child, it will be dropped in 6 months as long as Primoff stays out of trouble.

“There is no ongoing danger to the children,” a Westchester County assistant district attorney said. “Clearly I made a mistake,” Primoff, a 45-year-old Scarsdale resident said after a hearing today. “But I truly love our children and I know I am a good parent.”
