Tad Cummins, the Tennessee teacher arrested on accusations of kidnapping his student Elizabeth Thomas, will be presented in court Monday, CNN reported.

Cummins was arrested Thursday, almost five weeks after he went missing with the girl from Culleoka, Tennessee. Thomas was found in Northern California after law enforcement carried out a nationwide search.

According to Siskiyou County, California’s prosecutor Kirk Andrus, Cummins is expected to be arraigned in Sacramento as he is currently in federal custody in California.

CNN also quoted acting U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee Jack Smith as saying that the teacher may face at least 10 years in prison on the federal charge of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of criminal sexual intercourse. In addition to this, Cummins will also face state charges of sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping.

Cummins, 50, disappeared with Thomas, 15, on March 13, days after they were reported to have been seen kissing in a classroom. According to surveillance video from March 15, which was released by authorities, they were spotted at a Walmart in Oklahoma City. The trail became cold soon after and Cummins was added to Tennessee’s Most Wanted list.

After both Cummins and Thomas were found, the teacher’s estranged wife Jill Cummins, who filed for divorce recently, said she was glad they were safe.

“She is excited that they were found and nobody was hurt,” her attorney Michael Cox was quoted saying by the publication. “She has not spoken to Tad.”

“This is not somewhere they had frequently visited,” he added, explaining that Cummins wife did not know why he went to California. “I’m not aware that they had ever been there.”

In an interview with ABC's “Good Morning America” last week, Cummins’ wife voiced her disappointment with her husband.

“I forgive him and I still love him, but it doesn't mean that I could ever trust him again,” she said at the time. “Because he betrayed my trust to the point that it's totally broken.”
