Sentencing Upheld For Former Coach Convicted of Child Pornography

(WBNG Binghamton) A federal appeals court upholds the prison sentence of a former field hockey coach convicted of charges relating to child pornography.

Todd Broxmeyer, 41, of Lisle is serving time for possessing and attempted production of child pornography.

He appealed calling the 30 year sentence for the charge of attempted production unreasonable based on the 15 year minimum it carried.

The second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the arguments in the appeal.

The appeals court said he abused his position of trust as a coach to repeatedly sexually abuse teenage girls.

Broxmeyer had sexual contact with three female victims all under 17 years old between November and December of 2007.
