Judge dismisses porn case against Minn. coach

A Minnesota football coach sidelined by accusations of child pornography involving his own children reacted with relief Friday after a judge dismissed the case, saying he was “thankful to be waking up from this nightmare.”

Well finally common sense prevails for Todd Hoffner, the head coach at Minnesota State-Mankato that we wrote about back in late August. Seems the judge hearing the case was a bit more in tune with the real world than the police and prosecutor handling the case.

While the legal battle may be over for Todd and the family is breathing a little bit easier; there’s no doubt in my mind that this will have a lasting effect on the Hoffner family. Todd now has to return to the real world; where prejudices and judgement don’t always follow the legal ruling.

Even if Todd never has to deal with the inevitable questions and outright dislike that others are going to display; there’s still the self doubt and anxiety that he’ll feel every time he start’s to take a picture of his kids. Having lived through it before he’s well aware of the fact that most innocent thing can be taken out of context, manipulated, and used against you.

Todd, I know my apology can’t make up for the months of doubt, uncertainty, fear, and anguish that you and your family have endured. But please accept it anyway.
