Bail set at $1.5M for high school athletic director in porn case

LAS VEGAS - The Arbor View High School athletic director arrested for child porn won't be getting out of jail anytime soon.
The judge set his bail at $1.5 million and added more counts to his case Tuesday.

Roger Brown is now facing a new charge of first degree kidnapping and more counts of child sex and child pornography for taking in a former 16-year-old student who had run away from home. Brown is accused of giving the teen drugs and alcohol for the purpose of getting him to commit sex acts.

Last week, police arrested Brown after a current Arbor View student came forward saying the athletic director offered him money for inappropriate pictures.

During Brown's initial appearance in court Tuesday morning, prosecutors revealed there are three victims in the case against Brown. 

Recognizing the extremely serious nature of the charges, Judge Eric Goodman set a high bail even though Brown's attorney requested the bail be set at $50,000.

Brown has been employed by the school district since 1989, and in 2014 was recognized as Nevada's athletic director of the year.   

Detectives have been collecting evidence going through Brown's computer and phone.

CCSD says he is in the process of being dismissed and placed on an unpaid status.
