David Abston, the man at the center of Tulsa County's largest child molestation case, was supposed to be in court on Monday, but it was delayed until the middle of December. Discussions between the district attorney’s office and Abston's attorneys stalled, so a judge scheduled a preliminary hearing.

Prosecutors said 55-year-old David Abston had 200 video files on his computer that were accessed by a FBI agent in Miami, Florida in fall 2006. That agent tipped the FBI in Tulsa and that's how the investigation began.

Abston faces 28 counts of sexually abusing boys and possessing child pornography.
