Rob McGuire Discusses Tad Cummins Case on ABC News

ABC's 20/20 recently delved into the case of Tad Cummins, a former teacher in Tennessee who was recently arrested in remote Oregon after he was found with a 15-year-old student. Cummins was extradited to Tennessee, where he is now facing federal charges of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of sexual activity.

Criminal Defense attorney Rob McGuire appeared on ABC News 2, the Nashville ABC affiliate, to discuss the case, drawing on his insight gained over working on both sides of federal criminal cases

"I think it's going to be a very difficult case to defend," McGuire told the station. "I think it is going to be the kind of case where you are going to be looking to secure a plea agreement to give him some daylight at the end of the tunnel."

There are still plenty of crucial unknowns in the case, as Mr. McGuire told News 2, including the statements Cummins and the student have made to investigators. These statements will be very important to the case. McGuire said that statements Cummins has made to others, including his estranged wife, will likely be major pieces of evidence prosecutors will use in the case.

Learn more about the background of the case, including the more than a month Cummins spent on the run, and watch the 20/20 report here. Cummins appeared in federal court in Nashville on Tuesday and will appear before a magistrate Friday, according to CNN.
