i pretty sure hoffman is german, but that doesn't matter anyway, you go to jail where the crime was committed. you are probably right about the appeal griffin, i jus found it strange that we never hear anything about it. hoffman seems like the kind of guy who would do anything to avoid facing up to his responsibilities eg dumping his wife and kid. you know i passionately dislike people who prioritise themself over their children, and although i hate to judge people wthout all the facts, hoffman really pisses me off and to be honest i have really lost a lot of respect for my all time favourite player patty because of this whole thing. she needs to get some respect for herself and stop looking for father figures in the form of dodgy german gurus/criminals!
