Big win for college coach wrongly accused of child porn

(Continued)

MANKATO, Minn. —

Arbitrator Gerald Wallin, who gathered evidence and heard several witnesses from July to November of last year, agreed the videos were not child porn. He said the decision to fire Hoffner was made by university president Richard Davenport without just cause.

Jan Fleming, Hoffner’s attorney for the criminal case, said the family has not decided yet whether to return to Minnesota or stay at Minot State. If he stays put, the Minnesota university will have to pay any difference in his salary under the arbitrator’s ruling.

“This period from losing his job up until the point of this arbitration has been particularly grueling,” said Fleming. “There was a time that Todd was working as a farmhand.”

Details for this story were reported by the Mankato Free Press.
