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

While Elizabeth Thomas got re-acquainted with her family and friends, the complications in her family's domestic case continued.

The family's attorney added, "The family prays and hopes that she can get beyond that and have a very successful life, but he has made that very hard", Jason Whatley said.

A Tennessee teacher charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old student and driving her to California had planned to take the girl to Mexico and took a boat from San Diego on a test run, according to federal court documents filed Monday. There was not availability to food all the time, is the understanding.

Quinn said in an interview on NBC's TODAY show that she was able to speak with her brother three times after his arrest and that while "he's done this disgusting thing that he has to pay for, he's still my brother, and I love him". Quinn said. "What were you thinking? She's just so happy to get food and coffee and showering".

The US Attorney's Office is requesting that Cummins remain detained pending trial in the Middle District of Tennessee. He also faces charges in Maury County, Tennessee for the sexual relationship with the girl and with aggravated kidnapping.

"She was abducted and she's grateful to be home", she said.

Seven weeks before he and the girl left Tennessee to spark what became a nationwide manhunt, Cummins was observed on January 23 by another student at the Culleoka Unit School kissing the 15-year-old alleged victim, according to the complaint sworn out by Columbia, Tenn. police detective Jonathan R. Hardison.

Thomas and Cummins were found in a small cabin in a very remote area of Cecilville, California, after Griffin Barry tipped off police. Cummins is 50 years old. Cummins reportedly told the tipster who called police that the girl was his 22-year-old wife.
