Former day care provider convicted in cocaine case

December 9, 2013


A Douglas County jury has convicted Tiffany C. Hubbard, 38, of distributing crack cocaine out of her home, which was also the site of a Lawrence day care.

After deliberating nearly a full day, the jury convicted Hubbard late Friday of two counts of distribution of cocaine, two counts of using a cellphone to distribute the drug and one count of possessing the drug. The jury hung on five other counts involving distribution of the drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hubbard operated the Children’s Playpen group day care home at 766 Lake St. The day care was searched Oct. 24, 2012, and police said they discovered drugs there.

The day after the police search, state officials from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment issued an emergency order to close the day care.

Hubbard’s sentencing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Jan. 31.
