HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County Assistant District Attorney Tim Gann said prosecutors are ready to press forward with their case against former Guntersville Soccer coach David Barrow, even though more possible crimes may yet come to light.

He said Barrow's lawyers have waived a preliminary hearing, meaning the case will now go straight to a grand jury for indictment.

In Madison County, Barrow is charged with sodomy, child sex abuse and human trafficking for allegedly molesting a 10-year-old girl.

He's also charged in Marshall County, with 24 counts of producing child porn, allegedly with hidden cameras shooting victims under 17.

But Gann says there could be more.

"There's always possibilities. There are still computers that we haven't looked through yet. There are still other avenues that are being pursued right now," Gann said.

The current charges against Barrow cover a period over late last year and early this year. [Click here for full coverage.] Gann said even as the prosecution moves forward, the investigation looks farther into the past.

'It could have been going on for a long time. I don't know that we have found everything. I would like to think that we've done a thorough investigation and it's one of the best investigations I've ever seen - but something of this magnitude, the amount of time that he's been involved with what he's done as far as coaching and that type of thing, there's no telling how far it goes back."
