EL CENTRO, Calif. – A 25-year-old teacher has agreed to be transferred from California to Nebraska to face charges that she fled to Mexico with a 13-year-old former student.
A federal magistrate judge in El Centro denied bail Wednesday to Kelsey Peterson, saying she might flee.
Diane Regan, Peterson's court-appointed attorney, argued unsuccessfully for $100,000 bail.
The defense attorney says Peterson's family was 100 percent behind her.
Peterson showed no emotion as she told the judge that she agreed to be transferred.
