The Latest: Teacher to return to Tennessee to face charges
The Latest on the arrest of a Tennessee teacher charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old student (all times local):
The man charged in the kidnapping of a Tennessee girl acknowledged in California federal court that he is the suspect and agreed to return to Tennessee to face charges there.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Kendall Newman ordered Tad Cummins held in the meantime as both a flight risk and a danger to the public.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hitt said Monday Cummins is a danger in part for "using his position of trust as a school teacher" and for having two guns in the vehicle when he and the missing girl were found Thursday at a remote cabin in far northwest California.
Assistant federal defender Ben Galloway argued the girl went willingly and Cummins had no criminal history.
Cummins offered minimal responses as he was advised of his rights and the charges that could send him to prison for 10 years to life.
