CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A federal magistrate won't free before trial an Iowa youth basketball coach who's accused of secretly recording some of his players undressing. U.S. Magistrate Kelly Mahoney ruled after video hearing Wednesday that 42-year-old Greg Stephen didn't pose a flight risk but did pose a danger to the community. Prosecutors had asked the judge to keep the ex-Iowa Barnstormers co-director in custody. Stephen was arrested last week on a charge of knowingly transporting child pornography.
