A former LDS Seminary principal appeared in court Monday for a review of bail and was ordered to submit his computer hard drive to the court as evidence in a suspected sex abuse case with a 16-year-old student.

Michael J. Pratt, 37, appeared in 4th District Court to hand over the computer's hard drive. He was held in jail, but posted $20,000 bail for his release on Saturday. He has not been officially charged.

He was fired from his position as principal at Lone Peak High School's LDS Seminary on Friday.

Charged could be filed at his first felony court appearance at 8:30 a.m. on Monday.
