Kelsey Peterson update

Boy in Teacher-Sex Case Back in Neb.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 14-year-old illegal immigrant who fled to Mexico with his former teacher has reunited with his family in Nebraska, his lawyer said Thursday.

Amy Peck said her client arrived Wednesday after the Department of Homeland Security gave him humanitarian parole, a seldom-granted measure that lets people into the country temporarily.

The boy, who was born in Mexico, left Lexington with his former teacher, 25-year-old Kelsey Peterson. Peterson is accused of having sex with him and is in custody facing federal and state charges.

Boy, I'll bet this kid is so happy to be back in the states. I predict he'll go straight to work as a day laborer in some cornfield.
