Reports sealed in case of cleared Minnesota coach

Posted: Updated:

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota State University football coach cleared by a judge of child porn charges stemming from cellphone video of his naked children has filed a civil lawsuit.

Todd Hoffner is asking a judge to keep investigation reports from the dismissed criminal case sealed from the public.

The Free Press in Mankato http://bit.ly/ZFYA0c reports a Twin Cities TV station filed a request to review the reports that usually become public after a criminal case is closed. But Hoffner's attorney requested a temporary restraining order to seal the reports until they can be reviewed.

District Court Judge Krista Jass granted the request Dec. 20 and when the records are gathered she said she would decide what should remain sealed.

Hoffner had been taken off administrative leave but not reinstated as head coach.
