Teacher Who Fled to Mexico With Ex-Student Will Be Tried in Nebraska

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.
