This undated file image offered by the Deschutes County Constable’s workplace reveals January Irene Neatherlin. BEND, OR (AP) -A 32-year-old female who abandoned numerous children at her illegal day care center to go to the health club and tanning beauty parlor has actually been sentenced to more than 21 years in prison.
January Neatherlin, 32, was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in February to 11 counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment and a count of third-degree assault, The Bulletin reports.
Neatherlin was detained in 2015 after authorities discovered 7 kids below 5 left unattended at her illegal daycare center called Little Giggles.
Authorities said she forced the children to take melatonin to induce sleep prior to going to the tanning hair salon or to the fitness center.
” She repeatedly administered a sleeping agent to space filled with babies toddlers and children and drove off in her car to meet her narcissist requires. there is no room in our society for monsters like this. January has no regard for human life,” one moms and dad said during Friday’s court hearing, KTVZ reports.
The other counts of criminal mistreatment are for previous events with kids.
In court Neatherlin said sorry, informing families that she had actually failed them and let them down.
” Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone takes responsibility for those errors,” she stated. “With that stated, I hope the court and the moms and dads accept my apology. I made a really poor call, and it has actually permanently altered my life as well as ended it.”
Neatherlin has prior felony identity-theft convictions under the names January Livsey and January Brooks.
