People v. Hoffman was a 1994 case from New York in which David Hoffman was convicted for sexually abusing the young daughter of his girlfriend 14-16 years earlier. “The woman’s first memory of the abuse came when she was typing a report regard a sexual abuse case,” working in a probation office in Grand Rapids, Michigan (Medick). The woman eventually filed a police report, and a detective interviewed Hoffman, who had been convicted in 1986 of sexually abusing children at a children’s home in Duchess County, New York. Hoffman admitted he had committed the earlier crimes while a graduate student at Ohio State University and pled guilty as charged, corroborating the recovered memories of his victim.
