WILTON, Maine (AP) - An attorney who represented high-profile defendants in Maine has resigned two years after being charged with making bomb threats against two Wilton schools.

The Board of Overseers of the Bar announced Thursday that it accepted the voluntary resignation of Ron Hoffman, who practices law in Rumford. Last fall, the board allowed Hoffman to keep his law practice with stipulations. His resignation is effective next month.

Hoffman was given a suspended sentence after making bomb threats in March 2012 against Cushing School and Academy Hill School, forcing the evacuation of 360 students.

Hoffman’s clients have included quadruple murderer Christian Nielsen of Newry in 2007 and Richard Moulton Jr., who pleaded guilty last year to two murders. A message left at Hoffman’s law office was not immediately returned.
