Child pornography charges against the football coach at Minnesota State, Mankato, are groundless and images on his cellphone are innocent family memories, his wife insisted Monday.
A Minnesota football coach accused of taking pornographic videos of his children is offering a simple explanation: The images are nothing more than innocent family antics, unfairly misinterpreted by authorities as having the darkest possible motive.
His wife, Melodee Hoffner, told the Star Tribune that her husband has applied for dozens of football coaching jobs, but even old colleagues wouldn't invite him to work at football camps last summer.
"My family does what every family does _ we take videos and pictures of our kids in all their craziness," Melodee Hoffner said Monday.
