BORDEAUX, France, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- A French court ordered the extradition of a British teacher charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old student who ran away with him to France.

Jeremy Forrest, a math teacher at a school in Eastbourne on England's south coast, was arrested in Bordeaux last week. Police conducted a sting operation after he applied for work at a bar, The Guardian said.

Megan Stammers was flown home Saturday.

Forrest, who is married, could be sentenced to three years in prison for the abduction of a minor, Radio France Internationale reported.
