School Teacher Is Denied Bail, Agrees To 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 said Peterson's family was 100 percent behind her.

Peterson showed no emotion as she told the judge that she agreed to be transferred.

She smile weakly at her attorney when she left the courtroom.
