Tennessee teacher indicted on sex, obstruction charges

Tad Cummins, the former high school teacher accused of abducting his former student from Tennessee to California, was indicted on Thursday on two federal charges. After receiving a tip-off from a property caretaker, police finally managed to capture them in Siskiyou County, California near the OR border where they had been living.

Court documents said Cummins was indicted on a charge of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activities, which has a maximum sentence of life in prison; and a second charge of destruction, adjustment or falsification of records in a federal investigation, which has a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Cummins faces up to life in prison if convicted of the federal charges against him, and a minimum of 10 years.

The girl was a student in Cummins' class.

In it, he apologized and told her not to call police because it would imply he was guilty of the allegations police were investigating.

Trump Delivers His First Commencement Address As President At Liberty University
Trump urged the graduates to "embrace the label" of being an outsider and to not "swim downstream so easily with the current". Liberty graduates more than 18,000 students this year; about 6,000 of them attended Saturday's ceremony.

But prosecutors say he went to great lengths to keep them off-scent.

While on the run, the accused had disabled the Global Positioning System of his auto, thrown away his mobile phone and even taken on a false name, it was reported.

As police looked for more evidence in the case, they came across an Instagram account of Thomas where she had changed her bio and added the title of "wife" with an emoji of a ring.

Elizabeth had already dyed her hair, allegedly with the product Cummins was seen buying in a different store days earlier. Lawyers for the victim's family say she is back home and under treatment by mental health experts specializing in trauma.
