MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — A football coach at Minnesota State University, Mankato, who was cleared of child pornography charges, wants the investigative reports in his case to remain sealed.

Todd Hoffner asked for an injunction earlier this month in hopes of keeping the police reports private. The request was filed after a Twin Cities television station asked to see them.

Hoffner was accused of child pornography in August after school officials found videos of his naked children on his work-issued cellphone. Those charges were dismissed last month. Hoffner has been taken off administrative leave but not reinstated as head coach.

The Free Press of Mankato (http://bit.ly/ZFYA0c) reports that District Court Judge Krista Jass issued a ruling last week that will keep the reports private until they can be reviewed.
