MSU football coach Todd Hoffner testifies: Videos 'innocent'

MANKATO, Minn. (KMSP) -

A Minnesota football coach accused of making pornographic videos of his children says there was nothing inappropriate about the cell phone footage.

Mankato State University coach Todd Hoffner testified Wednesday at a hearing and asked a judge to dismiss the case, speaking out for the first time against the charges against him.

Hoffner says he shot the videos because his kids asked him to after they came up with some skit in the bathtub. He says the videos just showed the children being silly, laughing and dancing.

Hoffner says he never watched the videos and never showed them to anyone, either. He told the court he and his wife are comfortable with their children being naked in the house and around each other.

Blue Earth County Judge Krista Jass didn't rule in the case. She gave attorneys until Nov. 14 to file additional briefs.
