PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire attorney who previously pleaded guilty to calling in bomb threats to two elementary schools in Maine has now been charged with encouraging a client to break the law.

Ragnar Huffmann, formerly known as Ronald Hoffman, was arrested on Wednesday on charges including witness tampering and criminal liability for the conduct of another.

Authorities say Huffmann, of Stratham, urged his client to continue contacting the alleged victim in a domestic violence case to calm her down and influence her to drop the charges. Prosecutors say he also encouraged the woman to recant her story.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2lpn0eH ) Huffmann pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanors. He didn’t enter pleas for the felony charges.

Huffmann’s lawyer says it seems the allegations are based on protected attorney-client information.
