MADISON (WKOW)-- The Madison man accused of drugging, sexually assaulting and video taping a string of women, will appear in federal court for a detention hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Brian Stowe has been behind bars since last week when he first appeared on a federal charge of using a minor to produce child pornography.

Stowe is also charged with 62 felony counts at the state level. A judge will either set a bond amount, or order Stowe jailed for the rest of the case.

He's facing up to 30 years in prison on the federal charge alone.

Police say a report from the child in this case, a 17-year-old, led them to the other women. The eight alleged adult victims worked with Stowe at a Verona tech company. He has since been fired from that company.

Stowe is scheduled to return to Dane County court early next month, for a status conference on the state charges.
