NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A trial has been delayed until January for a Tennessee teacher who led police on a nationwide manhunt after running away with a 15-year-old student.

A federal judge in Nashville on Thursday reset the jury trial for Tad Cummins to Jan. 2. It had been set for July 25.

The 50-year-old teacher has filed paperwork saying he is pleading not guilty to charges of taking a minor across state lines for sex, and obstruction of justice.

A judge ordered Cummins held until trial after an FBI agent testified that he admitted to having sex with the girl most nights during the 38 days he was on the run with her.

Cummins and the girl were found in April in a remote area of northern California following a tip to police.
