Ala. high school teacher charged in kidnapping of 6-year-old Miss. girl; bond denied

A high-school teacher from Alabama is accused of kidnapping a 6-year-old girl from school in Mississippi, sending a frightening text message to the child's mother and paying to keep her overnight in a hotel.

U.S. Attorney Gregory Davis says a federal magistrate in Jackson denied bond Thursday to 54-year-old Jesse Mae Pollard, of Northport, Ala.

The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/153Tbm7) says Pollard teaches at a school near the elementary school where a woman asked for the child by name and left with her on Tuesday.

Davis' news release says that about four hours later, the girl's mother got a text message saying not to call police or "u wont see her again." She was released Wednesday.

An FBI agent's affidavit does not give a motive, but says Pollard had a dispute with the child's mother.
