MSU Coach Porn Charges 23 Aug 12

MSU-Mankato Head Football Coach Todd Hoffner has been charged with possession of pornography involving minors and using minors in a sexual performance. The 46-year-old Hoffner was formally charged on Wednesday after a university IT employee discovered three videos depicting naked children on the coach’s phone earlier this month. Hoffner’s attorney says that the videos were a private, family moment involving Hoffner’s children that contain nothing graphic or abusive, and police interpreted them wrong. Hoffner is currently on administrative leave at the University, which is conducting it’s own investigation. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Hoffner posted bail Wednesday afternoon after paying $40,000.
