Sex Predator's Plea For Lighter Sentence Doesn't Pass Muster
Former Tennessee teacher Tad Cummins fled with a 15-year-old student in 2017 and held her for more than a month.
Newser reports the 52-year-old was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in federal prison.
Cummins pleaded guilty last year to federal crimes of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor and obstruction of justice.
Asking for the minimum sentence of 10 years, he argued that if they hadn't crossed state lines he would've gotten just 2 to 4 years.
