    STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. - On Wednesday, Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen announced the arrest of Spokane VA physician Craig Morgenstern. Morgenstern was arrested on a charge of Second Degree Rape of a Child after a 13-year-old boy said Morgenstern gave him some hot chocolate that made him fall asleep, and then woke up to Morgenstern performing sexual acts on him.>>
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Former Veterans Affairs Medical Center physician Craig Morgenstern faced a judge in federal court Thursday. The former Spokane doctor is accused of child sex abuse and faces multiple charges including producing child pornography, aggravated sexual abuse of a child and traveling across state lines to sexually abuse children. 

During the brief hearing, the judge called the evidence against Morgenstern "voluminous", and the prosecution said the victim count is now up to six kids. Though the court wanted to move forward with trial, the judge granted the defense more time and pushed his trial back until September. The prosecution said they will file new indictments against Morgenstern sometime in March. 

Morgenstern was originally jailed in October after a 13-year-old left the physician's Nine Mile Falls home and told a neighbor he'd awoken to the 45-year-old man abusing him.
