A Clovis school teacher accused of molesting a student in his classroom remains behind bars.
During a brief hearing Thursday, 43-year-old Neng Yang asked a federal judge if he could get out of jail on bail.
The judge denied Yang's request.
Yang taught second grade at Freedom Elementary in Clovis. He's accused of molesting a 7-year-old girl and having sexually-explicit pictures of animals on his school-issued computer.
Yang also faces state charges in the case. He has pleaded not guilty.
