Hockey Coach Challenges Sentence From Prison 5-18-2011

A disgraced former Michigan high school hockey coach is asking a judge to throw out his prison sentence, saying the government had no right to prosecute him for creating child pornography.
Robert Bopp says nothing entered interstate commerce.
His handwritten document in Detroit federal court was sent from federal prison in Marion, Ill.
Prosecutors this week were ordered to respond.
Bopp led the Grosse Pointe South hockey team to the 2007 championship game.
In 2009, he was charged in state and federal courts with crimes linked to having sex with a drug-addicted boy at his Taylor home.
It was also revealed that Bopp secretly videotaped players in the Blue Devils locker room.
Bopp is serving a 22-year federal sentence at the same time as a 17 1/2-year state sentence.
