Babysitter Charged With Over 100 Criminal Counts

BEND, OR -- A grand jury indicted A Bend daycare provider, Tuesday.  January Neatherlin is charged with more than a hundred counts relating to her business. The 31-year-old woman is accused of leaving kids alone, on various occasions, so she could visit a gym and tanning salon; the children were between 6-months and 4-years-old.


She's charged with 76 counts of criminal mistreatment in the first degree, and 38 counts of recklessly endangering another. Neatherlin was arrested last week after police say she left seven young children home alone. She's due back in court Thursday. 
Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said in a statement, "Nothing is more precious than the safety and security of our children. If the allegations against Ms. Neatherlin are proven in court, I will seek the maximum penalty authorized by law." He says this is an ongoing investigation and those with information about Neatherlin's business should contact Bend Police at 541-693-6911. She has also gone by the names January Livsey and January Brooks.
