MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Marshall County Judge Mitchell Floyd set bond for David Barrow at $2.5 million. 

Barrow, a suspended high school soccer coach, faces dozens of child pornography charges in Marshall County.He was previously jailed on similar charges in Madison County.

As a condition of Barrow's bond, he will have to surrender his pilot license, have no contact with children without DHR supervision and he can't leave Marshall or Madison Counties without approval.

In court on Friday, Barrow was asked if he had anything to say.

"I have things to say, but I have been told to remain silent," said Barrow. "So I better remain silent."

Marshall County prosecutors presented evidence in court that Barrow is a certified pilot, that he has a hangar in Guntersville and that he recently paid cash to fill his plane with fuel. Prosecutors argued that Barrow is a flight risk, so they asked for the maximum bond amount of $2.5 million, which was granted

.After the hearing, District Attorney Steve Marshall said his office is getting lots of calls from parents asking if their children are pictured in any of the videos.

He said the DA's office has notified most victims, but they still have more evidence to look through.

None of Barrow's family or his attorney were in court Friday.

Prosecutors said that cameras were found under a table, in an athletic facility and in a bathroom stall. They showed pictures to the judge that showed Barrow on camera adjusting or removing the equipment.

Guntersville police transferred him over from their jail to the Marshall County jail on Friday.

Barrow will remain in jail on bond.
