A former official at the Northampton District Court was sentenced Friday in federal court in Worcester to two years of probation, according to federal court filings.

Christopher Hoffman of Hatfield, the former acting probation chief of the court, was convicted of intimidating a witness in July during the FBI investigation of allegedly corrupt hiring and promotion practices at the Probation Department.

Hoffman was placed on house arrest for six months and ordered to wear location-monitoring equipment, fined $5,000, and sentenced to 100 hours of community service, the court filings said.
