Mo. woman pleads guilty to dealing drugs from day care

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri woman is expected to get shock jail time and probation after pleading guilty to dealing prescription pain pills from her day care center.

The Southeast Missourian reports that 37-year-old Keisha McReynolds entered the plea Monday. She could get up to 15 years in prison but a deal with prosecutors calls for 120 days of shock incarceration and probation.

McReynolds sold pills to a confidential informant with the Southeast Missouri Drug Task Force at the day care she operated, Beautiful Beginnings Childcare of Cape Girardeau.

Her lawyer, Malcolm Montgomery, says McReynolds is remorseful.
