“I fully understand why the ‘red flag’ went up the pole, however the actions following the ‘red flag’ have been hurting innocent, confused children in the Hoffner family and within Blue Earth County,” Sabin said. “The merry-go-round needs to stop to allow everyone to move on. Let’s use our limited resources to get ‘the real bad guys’ instead of wasting them on those who are innocent.”
Sabin also commended the Minnesota State University employees and law enforcement officers who acted quickly after they saw the videos. But she added that the justice system also needs to act quickly if someone has been unfairly accused of a crime.
