January Neatherlin, Daycare Owner, Drugged Children To Sneak Off To Gym, Tanning

She told parents they could not collect their children between 11am and 2pm as this was "nap time".

Parents reported that their children still struggle with sleeping issues. Initially, she went to drop her kids to school and later went to visit a local "Tan Republic".

One of the families declared that after being in Neatherlin's care, their child had suffered permanent brain damage, while another cited difficulties in putting their child to bed.

According to court documents filed by the court, Neatherlin was described as an individual with an "on-going, systematic scheme of doing what she wanted and getting what she wanted, without any concern for the danger she was placing others in".

According to the Daily Mail, almost a dozen parents testified against January Neatherlin, 32, who owned the Little Giggles Daycare.

She had run the unlicensed childcare centre for five years, but last year was reported to the authorities by a former roommate and an ex-boyfriend.

She was sentenced to years 21 years and four months after pleading guilty to 11 counts of first degree criminal mistreatment and one count of third degree assault.

"There is no room in our society for monsters like this. January has no respect for human life", one parent said, according to KTVZ.

"She repeatedly administered a sleeping agent to a room full of infants, toddlers and children and drove off in her vehicle to fulfill her narcissistic needs, one parent said".

"It is this court's hope that you are able to find it or reconstruct it, and make yourself whole at some point", he said.

Prosecutors initially recommended a 35-year prison sentence for Neatherlin.

"I made a very poor call, and it has forever changed my life and even ended it", she said.

Neatherlin will spend at least 21 years and four months in prison.

It was also CrossFit time and tan time for Neatherlin, the owner of the illegal day-care operation, according to court records obtained by the Oregonian.

Neatherlin's rap sheet dates back to 2007, when she was charged with multiple instances of theft and identity theft.

The sentencing hearing came almost one year after police investigators found seven children under five years old drugged and unattended at Neatherlin's unlicensed Little Giggles Day Care while she was at a tanning salon.

In a tearful statement just before she was sentenced, Neatherlin denied that she had ever struck a child. She was told to drop her number to three or less children.
