The attorney for Tad Cummins, a former Maury County teacher accused of transporting a student across state lines for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual conduct, has left the case after trying to talk to the alleged victim. The Tennessean reports that Brent Horst asked to drop out of Cummins’ case because he was concerned federal prosecutors might be investigating his attempts to talk to the 15-year-old girl. U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger granted Horst’s request after speaking to him in a closed session.
