MIDLAND - Midland College Professor David Allen was back in a federal courtroom Tuesday. Allen and his attornies were in Midland's Magistrate Court for his detention hearing.

The judge set bond at $100,000, but also agreed to Allen's request to be sent to a sexual addiction treatment center in Arizona for 45 days.

NewsWest9 has learned that the U.S. Attorney plans to appeal the decision to send Allen for treatment. During a previous hearing, the U.S. Attorney argued against sending Allen for treatment saying he should have sought treatment on his own before it reached the level of a federal offense.

Allen was indicted on charges of trafficking child pornography over the Internet.
