The charge against one of the defendants in the Kemper County kidnapping of a six-year-old girl has been downgraded.
Wanda Dancy appeared in federal court Thursday. The charge against her was reduced from kidnapping to conspiracy.
Dancy is one of seven people who face charges in the Apr. 30 kidnapping of Jashayla Hopson from East Kemper Elementary School.
Dancy was the secretary at the school when the child was taken.
Hopson was released unharmed on a rural Lauderdale County road the next day.
