OR woman drugged kids so she could tan, work out

An Oregon woman who operated an unlicensed daycare centre has been sentenced to over 21 years for using sleeping drugs on children so she could run errands, including working out at the gym and visiting the tanning salon.

The 32-year-old pleaded guilty to 11 counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment and one count of third degree assault last year.

Bend police, based on tips provided by a former boyfriend and a former roommate, surveilled Neatherlin last March and saw her leave the house twice while she was supposed to be watching seven children.

While children took their "nap time" without any adult supervision inside her unregistered daycare center, Neatherlin snuck out the first time to go drop her own children in school and the second time to visit a local tanning parlor called Tan Republic.

Other parents told stories of their children struggling to sleep after their time with Neatherlin.

"Neatherlin had been telling parents they couldn't pick up or drop off their kids between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.", according to the report. Some of her convictions came under the aliases January Livsey and January Brooks.

"Everybody makes mistakes but not everybody takes responsibility for those mistakes", she said in court. "I made a very poor call, and it has forever changed my life and even ended it", Neatherlin said.

January Neatherlin, 32, accused of running an illegal day care in Bend, Ore., where she would leave the children unattended so she could go tanning and do CrossFit, has been sentenced to 21 years, four months in prison.

CM removes FM Haseeb Drabu from cabinet post Kashmir remarks
Drabu, while speaking at the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry event, had said that the issue in Kashmir is not political. Separatist Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Yasin Malik said Drabu's statement was aimed at distorting history.

The court heard that Neatherlin had overheated a bottle of milk in the microwave, scalding the child.

Neatherlin was described in court as having an "ongoing, systematic scheme of doing what she wanted and getting what she wanted, without any concern for the danger she was placing others in".

Another parent said her child had blisters in her mouth and on her shoulders after attending Little Giggles.

Before being sentenced, she admitted "failing" the children in her care, but denied ever having hit a child. Prosecutors initially appealed for a 35-year sentence.

"I don't say that to be mean to you - simply a gap there".

"There is something broken and something missing in you", Deschutes County Circuit Judge Wells Ashby told Neatherlin, according to the Bend Bulletin.

The kids were aged between six months and four years old.
