Shawn Mofle – Former Coach – hid a video camera

Many in Webster City are mum about what the former coach allegedly did at the middle school. Prosecutors say Mofle hid a video camera in a duffle bag and pointed it at his team while they showered. The indictment reads, “For the purpose of producing visual depictions.”

Prosecutors say the boys did not know their coach allegedly did this on four separate occasions, and yet this dredged up something worse. Investigators found another tape, one that’s five years old.



Police arrested 41-year-old Shawn Mofle of Webster City, after Mofle’s stepson brought police a videotape. It contained images of the seventh grade boys basketball team Mofle coaches, showering in the nude. But the indictment contains even more serious charges.

Many in Webster City are mum about what the former coach allegedly did at the middle school. Prosecutors say Mofle hid a video camera in a duffle bag and pointed it at his team while they showered. The indictment reads, “For the purpose of producing visual depictions.”

Prosecutors say the boys did not know their coach allegedly did this on four separate occasions, and yet this dredged up something worse. Investigators found another tape, one that’s five years old.

Prosecutors say it shows Mofle “Used a person under the age of eighteen to engage in sexually explicit conduct, specifically, intercourse.” The victims are not members of the basketball team.

As teammates and their parents deal with this alleged victimization, the school district released a statement. It asks everyone in town to “Afford them the privacy and confidentiality that might be necessary to do so.”

The federal prosecutor in Sioux City wouldn’t give any information about the alleged victim or victims on the older tape they found. But he did say the investigation is not over because there is more alleged activity.

Mofle is due in court for his arraignment on March 6.
