A Hatfield man who was suspended in 2011 from his job as a state probation official was convicted Friday of intimidating a witness during the FBI investigation of alleged corrupt hiring practices at the state agency and faces sentencing in October. Christopher Hoffman, 41, is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 18 in federal court in Worcester, according to his case docket. A jury in the same court convicted him Friday after about three hours of deliberations, records show. A previous jury failed to reach a verdict.
