MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A Mandan man has been charged with promoting obscenity to minors for an incident that allegedly occurred while he was a high school social studies teacher.

Authorities allege that 45-year-old Scott Allan gave 17- and 18-year-old females a sexually explicit book he had written, as a graduation gift. Characters in the book allegedly were based on the females.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1wuWYEe ) reports a judge on Thursday set bond for Allan at $500 cash and prohibited him from having contact with the students.

Allan resigned May 22 hours after school officials placed him on administrative leave.

Allan turned himself in Wednesday night. He is also facing a misdemeanor disorderly conduct. His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.
