CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A jailed former Iowa youth basketball coach is charged in a new federal indictment with enticing several minors to produce sexually explicit images and videos.

A superseding indictment returned Wednesday against former Iowa Barnstormers coach Greg Stephen adds five counts of sexual exploitation of minors and one count of possessing child pornography.

The indictment alleges that photos and videos of five minors were found on a hard drive that investigators seized during a search of Stephen's Monticello home.

It alleges Stephen persuaded the minors to masturbate for the purpose of making images of them between 2010 and 2013. It's unclear whether the alleged victims were Stephen's players.

Stephen has been jailed since he was arrested in March, when investigators alleged he secretly recorded adolescent players disrobing in hotel bathrooms. The new indictment retains the original charge against Stephen, knowingly transporting child pornography.
