A Cape woman charged with selling prescription pills from her day care has had her charges reduced.  In the state’s drug statutes day cares are not included in the list that defines schools.  Wednesday prosecutors amended their charge to distribution of a controlled substance.  The lesser penalty carries a max prison sentence of 15-years rather than the 30 under the previous charge.  37 year old Keisha McReynolds allegedly sold hydrocodone pills for 60-dollars to an informant inside the daycare during operating hours and children on the premise.  Court documents say the transaction was recorded.  She has been in custody since October 1st.  The misdemeanor charge for writing bad checks was dismissed when merchants were reimbursed.  She is currently being held on a 25-thousand dollar bond.
