MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO-AM) - Another member of the Lincoln Stars hockey team accused of using a 15-year-old girl to make a sex video in Moorhead appeared in court Tuesday.
Brandon Smith is one of two players charged with using a minor in a sexual performance, possession of child pornography and distributing child pornography.
Smith's attorney, Joseph Friedberg says when all the facts are revealed, it'll appear much different than the case prepared by prosecutors. “That might be the understatement of the decade,” Friedberg said. “I think this is a tremendous misuse of prosecutorial discretion.”
Prosecutors say the video was made in February when the Lincoln Stars were in town for a hockey match against the Fargo Force. Smith was released on a personal recognizance bond.Thomas Carey of Moorhead is facing the same charges.
