After brazen crime spree, Kentucky teen charged with statutory rape of 13-year-old girlfriend.

An 18-year-old Kentucky man who was nabbed by police after a nearly two-week, multi-state crime spree with his 13-year-old girlfriend has been charged with a slate of crimes, including statutory rape. A tearful Dalton Hayes appeared in a Kentucky court on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to the charges, which include burglary, theft, custodial interference, criminal mischief, criminal trespassing and second- and third-degree rape, according to ABC affiliate WHAS.

Dalton Hayes was returned to Kentucky earlier Thursday and was being held on $250,000 cash bail pending a hearing next week on eight charges including burglary and second-degree rape. Hayes and Cheyenne Phillips, the 13-year-old girl he had been dating for about three months, disappeared in early January and, according to police, spent about a week bouncing around abandoned homes in Kentucky. Hayes and the girl, whom NBC News isn’t identifying because she’s a minor, were reported missing Jan. 3 in Kentucky and were arrested Saturday night in Panama City, Florida.

On Jan. 11, they escaped from the state using a stolen vehicle and later withdrew money using stolen checks Police followed their trail, finding evidence of their whereabouts in South Carolina, Georgia, and, finally, Florida, where the couple — dubbed a “teen Bonnie and Clyde” by national television networks — was finally captured early Sunday morning. Authorities said they led police on a chase through Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, stealing three cars — including one that held two handguns — along the way. Earlier in the day, the girl’s mother also appeared in Grayson County District Court to be arraigned on a charge of custodial interference for allegedly taking the girl from her father’s home without custodial rights.
