(Worcester, MA) — The first person in Massachusetts to be convicted in the Probation Department scandal has been sentenced to two years federal probation. Christopher Hoffman of Hatfield was convicted of witness tampering charges in July and sentenced last Friday. He was Acting Chief Probation Officer at Hampshire Superior Court when he threatened an employee who was about to be interviewed by the FBI. The interview was part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation into the department. Hoffman’s friend and boss William Burke has been indicted on charges that he ran a rigged hiring and promotion system for probation department jobs in Western Mass.
