Trial date set in daycare drugs case

Daily News Staff Writer

On Tuesday, the owner of a now-defunct daycare, Ashely Perin Sandoval, 33, was arraigned in Ketchikan Superior Court for allegedly possessing methamphetamine on or within 500 feet of her daycare — which is a Class B felony.

The charge, misconduct involving a controlled substance in the second degree, comes after a grand jury indicted Perin Sandoval this past Thursday.

Perin Sandoval was originally arrested back in August after police executed a search warrant on A Children’s Place daycare, which Perin Sandoval owned and operated.

According to police documents, a search of Perin Sandoval’s office of the daycare facility revealed “straw scoops, multiple IV needles found in various locations, and a glass methamphetamine pipe.”

This is not Perin Sandoval’s first legal issue involving drugs. According to court records, she plead guilty in 2010 to the same felony charge.

Although Perin Sandoval was not given bail in the current case and was released on her own recognizance, the order for release contains a variety of stipulations including that she “not provide or participate in child care services.”

During Tuesday’s arraignment, Superior Court Judge Trevor Stephens set a jury trial date of Feb. 6. Perin Sandoval has entered a not guilty plea.

A Children’s Place daycare, which was located at 320 Bawden St., has since closed its doors.
