Hoffner Asks To Have Child Porn Charges Dismissed

Hoffner Asks To Have Child Porn Charges Dismissed
Todd Hoffner


A Minnesota State, Mankato, football coach facing child pornography counts is trying to get the charges dismissed.

Todd Hoffner's attorney filed a request for dismissal in advance of a Wednesday hearing in Blue Earth County.

Hoffner was put on paid leave in August and charged with felonies after videos of his children were found on a university-issued cellphone. Prosecutors say the videos show the children dancing naked and touching themselves.

Attorney Jim Fleming says the videos are not child pornography. He and Hoffner's wife have called them innocent family moments.

Fleming already asked prosecutors to drop the charges, after officers found no child pornography on Hoffner's computers and county officials found no evidence of sexual abuse.

Hoffner has been volunteering with youth football.
