Coach’s Wife: Porn Charges ‘Ridiculous’

Todd Hoffner, Blue Earth County Jail

MANKATO  (AP) – The wife of the Minnesota State, Mankato, football coach accused of child pornography says her husband is innocent and that she hopes authorities will reconsider the charges against him.

Todd Hoffner of Eagle Lake faces two felony counts related to child pornography after authorities said they found nude images of the 46-year-old’s children on his cellphone. His wife, Melody Hoffner, spoke to the media Monday.

Melody Hoffner says the images on the video are innocent and that she and her husband were “in shock” when he was arrested. She says she is a licensed school counselor and knows the signs of children who have been abused. She calls the charges “ridiculous and baseless.”

Todd Hoffner is free on bail and is on leave from his job.
