A Clovis teacher accused of molesting one of his students was back in federal court Thursday where he's facing one count of producing child pornography.
Judge Dennis Beck ruled on Thursday that Neng Yang will not be released from custody and no bail was ordered because he's considered a danger to the community.
Yesterday in superior court, Yang pleaded not guilty to 45 counts of child molestation and bail was set there at $4.5 million dollars.
Federal agents say they are working closely with Clovis police in the investigation and the detention ordered today eliminates the risk that Yang would flee the country.
Yang, 43, was arrested Friday and accused of inappropriate behavior with a student in the classroom. Police began investigating Yeng when a parent came forward after their child told them what was going on.
Yang is facing a total of 18 counts of molestation with a child under 10.
The charges against Yang suggest the sexual incidents with the child happened numerous times.
At this point there is only one victim but Clovis Unified and police believe there may be more and police are urging other victims to come forward.
If convicted, Yang faces 15 to 30 years in prison.
