BEND, OR -- A Bend woman is accused of leaving seven children, between the ages of 6 months and four-years-old, alone. January Neatherlin, also known as January Livsey, ran a daycare out of her home on Blue Bush Court.
Police received tips that the 31-year-old woman was leaving young children alone. Officers observed her drive away from the house, but she had no kids with her when detectives contacted her at a local tanning salon. They knocked on the door of the house and, when no one answered after several minutes, officers entered and found the seven infants and toddlers.
Neatherlin is charged with 7 counts of child neglect, reckless endangering, theft and criminal mistreatment.
