     CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A judge has ordered an Iowa youth basketball coach jailed on a federal child pornography charge until a detention hearing Thursday.
    Greg Stephen, until recently the co-director of the Iowa Barnstormers, was handcuffed and shackled during an initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon in Cedar Rapids. He wore a Barnstormers T-shirt and jeans.
    Stephen was arrested by the FBI earlier in the day on a warrant charging him with knowingly transporting child pornography.
    A criminal complaint alleges that Stephen confessed to secretly recording three adolescent players in a hotel room during a trip to Illinois. Investigators say they found a recording of a fourth boy and are analyzing numerous cameras and electronic devices seized from Stephen's home and cabin.
    U.S. Magistrate Judge C.J. Williams scheduled a hearing Thursday afternoon to consider whether Stephen should be released pending trial.
