Judge tosses child porn case against MN football coach

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Minnesota judge has dismissed child pornography charges against a college football head coach accused of making pornographic videos of his children.

Blue Earth County District Court Judge Krista Jass ruled Friday that the case against Todd Hoffner is dismissed for lack of probable cause.

Hoffner is the head coach at Minnesota State, Mankato. He was charged in August with two felonies. Prosecutors said he made videos of his children performing suggestive acts while naked.

Hoffner and his wife insisted all along that the videos were not inappropriate, and were merely images of children acting silly and dancing after taking a bath.

A search of Hoffner's home found no evidence of child porn, and social workers found no evidence of abuse.
