Accused Antioch kidnapper appears in court

ANTIOCH, Calif.

David Allen Douglas has admitted to abducting the 7-year-old last Friday. She was safely located after an AMBER Alert was issued.

Douglas says taking the child wasn't his idea, but was arranged as part of a government conspiracy against him.

He's now being represented by a public defender.

His arraignment was continued. Douglas will be back in court next Wednesday.
