CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — A coach who ran a program for Iowa's top youth basketball players wants out of jail pending trial on charges that he secretly recorded some of them undressing.

An attorney for ex-Iowa Barnstormers director Greg Stephen argued in a filing Tuesday that he's not a danger to the community or a flight risk. Stephen has been in custody since he was arrested last week on a charge of knowingly transporting child pornography.

Court documents allege that Stephen has admitted to taking secret videos of three players disrobing in a hotel bathroom in Illinois in January.

He's expected to appear in court today for a hearing on the government's request that he be detained until trial, which hasn't been set. Co-defense attorney Mark Meyer said Stephen has no prior criminal record, strong community ties and scored low on risk assessments.
