Tennessee teacher planned to take 15-year-old girl to Mexico

Tennessee teacher planned to take 15-year-old girl to Mexico

A Tennessee teach charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old student and driving her back to California appeared in Siskyou County Superior Court Monday.

The federal judge read Tad Cummins his charges, which include transporting a minor across state lines with the intent to engage in sexual activity.

Cummins is accused of disappearing with Thomas after the two were reportedly spotted kissing at school.

Cummins and the girl had been the subject of a five-week, nationwide search that came to an end Thursday, when they were discovered hiding in a small cabin in Cecilville, a remote, unincorporated mountain community northwest of Redding. The girl has been reunited with her family. During the 38 days the two were missing, Cummins "intentionally employed measures to elude capture by law enforcement", switching license plates on his vehicle and disconnecting his GPS system, changing his physical appearance, using various identities for both him and the victim and paying in only cash, according to the documents.

Channel 4 has learned Tad Cummins is on his way to Sacramento, CA, which is where he will be arraigned on Monday.

The attorney said Cummins is "is looking forward to return to Tennessee as soon as possible", to contest the charges, according to the newspaper.

Tad Cummins, wanted in the kidnapping of a 15-year-old former student, is seen in a photo released March 17, 2017, by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations. "We'll make sure she'll get what therapy she needs and that she's safe, that she knows she's safe".




Quinn says she spoke to Cummins three times over the weekend.

"He's done this disgusting thing that he has to pay for, but he's still my brother and I love him", she said. The 29-year-old Tennessee native said Cummins used a fake name and said they had lost everything in a fire in Colorado and needed a place to stay. Cummins faces 10 years to life in prison if convicted.

The prosecutors say Cummins "made a number of damaging admissions to law enforcement that provide alarming insight into his mentality" during his post-arrest interviews.

"I think he would like to get his family back but I think it just hasn't hit him yet that that's not gonna happen", Quinn said. He is awaiting extradition to Tennessee, where he will be charged with sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping.

Surveillance footage captured the pair at a Walmart in Oklahoma. She says Elizabeth is in a mental health facility where she is being treated, so she spends a lot of time with a therapist while visitation with family & friends is limited.

"He's done this terrible thing that he has to pay for, but he's still my brother and I love him", Quinn said on NBC.
