One family said their daughter suffered a brain injury, consistent with shaken baby syndrome, while in Neatherlin's care; other parents said their children were struggling to sleep after Neatherlin fed them the drug, according to KTVZ. The parent of the little girl, Audrey Torrance, said she was left with blisters on the mouth and shoulders.
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.
Court documents said she had 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".
January Neatherlin, 32, who was sentenced Friday, had been running an illegal childcare operation called "Little Giggles" for four years and lied to parents saying that she was a registered nurse.
KTVZ reported that 32-year-old January Irene Neatherlin was sentenced Friday in an OR courtroom full of tearful parents.
When police arrived to arrest Neatherlin one of the children was covered in fresh vomit - and some of the children still had melatonin in their systems.
Furious woman confronts Seahawks players: 'Get off your f-king knees'
The Seahawks, along with the 49ers, had more anthem protesters than any other team in the National Football League a year ago . It is also not certain whether Thorpe had ever knelt for the anthem. "Stand up and be a man", the woman says. "F-- off.

According to NIH, there have been "no reports of significant side effects of melatonin in children".
Still, the Mayo Clinic recommends that people take the hormone only after consulting with a doctor.
Neatherlin was on a list of subsidized child care for students at Oregon State University-Cascades.
UN expert says Myanmar government employs starvation policy in Rakhine
Despite the ongoing preparations for repatriation, more than 2,500 Rohingyas have crossed into Bangladesh this year. Myanmar has seen internal ethnic conflicts since gaining independence from the United Kingdom in 1948.
The judge said Neatherlin will receive credit for time served on her sentence.
But she also admitted that she had done wrong. "But I failed you all".
Prosecutors initially recommended a 35-year prison sentence for Neatherlin. A day care license is only needed if a provider cares for more than three children. On Friday, a judge sentenced her to 21 years and four months in prison.
According to the court records, 32-year-old January Neatherlin has been under scrutiny since 2014, after her former boyfriend and roommate told the authorities that the woman was running an illegal day center.
"It is sheer serendipity and chance that some of those kids were not killed".
