Federal Trial of Hatfield Man Continues

The trial of acting Chief Probation Officer Christopher Hoffman continues today in US District Court.  The Hatfield man is accused of witness intimidation.  He allegedly threatened a co-worker as an investigation into rigged hiring at the state Probation Department unfolded.  It’s the second trial for Hoffman.  A mistrial was declared in May after the jury failed to reach consensus.
