Todd Hoffner, head coach of Minnesota State-Mankato's football program, is suing to have the police reports of his dismissed criminal case sealed.
Hoffner was cleared of child pornography charges filed by Blue Earth County that stemmed from videos found on his cell phone of his naked children frolicking after a bath. Hoffner has been taken off administrative leave at Minnesota State, but has yet to be reinstated as head football coach. He is facing a 20 day unpaid suspension next month for undisclosed reasons.
Hoffner has now sued the state and Blue Earth County in an effort to keep the police reports private, after a Twin Cities television state asked to see them. Hoffner's suit seeks a temporary restraining order that would keep the files private. District Court Judge Krista Jass has ruled the reports will remain sealed for now, pending a further review, according to the Mankato Free Press.
