A Teacher Earns His Student’s Trust
Sarah told People magazine, “Elizabeth looked at me with her eyes, like, ‘This guy is scary, get this guy off.’” Although she seemed wary of Cummins in the beginning, Elizabeth was eventually seduced by her teacher, who was old enough to be her father. According to family members, Cummins “groomed” Elizabeth and earned her trust.
The pair allegedly kissed on school property on Jan. 23, 2017, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. On March 13, 2017, police issued a multi-state Amber Alert and an arrest warrant for Cummins on charges of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor.
