Seattle Arrest Records for John Hoff AKA Johnny Northside Found

John Hoff AKA Johnny Northside loves to exploit people on his blog The Adventures of Johnny Northside by copying the Hennepin County Jail Roster and posting it on his blog. Hennepin County only leaves the data online for one week before it is removed however, Hoff leaves it on his blog permanently.
Hoff takes it one step further by offering to remove names from the list if requested... For a fee! The Jail Roster lists names of people who were arrested. Charges might have been dropped, dismissed or the arrest might have been by mistake. Hoff doesn't care. He reasons that if the person was arrested then they must have been doing something wrong.

Hoff has been a public "pain" for most of his adult life and while many of his wrong-doings have been documented on this blog, the suspicion that he has been arrested at one time or another has never been verified one way or another....  Until now.

Searches into King County, Washington and Seattle municipal records have turned up several incidents involving Hoff in the mid-90's, when he lived in Seattle. One of the incidents was the hyped up sidewalk sitting citation that Hoff appealed as far as he could before finally losing but, two of the records uncovered show that Hoff was arrested... TWICE!

This arrest information is very timely actually. Just in time for the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners to take into consideration for deciding whether or not they will approve his application to become a member of the Oklahoma Bar, regardless of the fact that he has taken the Bar Exam.

Blogger John Hoff Completed Oklahoma Bar Exam But, Status Under Review, Regardless of Test Results

Cartoon parody of John Hoff as a lawyer with his own rules

The Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners held the Bar Exam on February 25-26, 2014.
John Willard Hoff was one of the names published as an out of state applicant prior to the test dates.
I received an email response from the Director of the Board of Bar Examiners on March 5, 2014 that stated John Hoff attended and completed the exam that was held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

I had sent a package to the board containing information that suggested John Hoff does not have the moral character to become a licensed attorney in Oklahoma. I have been told that I was not the only person that sent them information however, up until the confirmation was received, it was not known if Hoff attended or if he was allowed to take the test.
The results to the exams will not be known or made public for several months.

The board director informed me of the following...
"An applicant is allowed to take a bar exam in Oklahoma even if the character and fitness portion of their application has not yet been approved.  However, should they pass the exam, the applicant is not eligible for admission until the Board has approved their application."
The amount of Hoff material that I submitted was substantial and no date was selected for when the board will complete their investigation and decide if Hoff's application will be approved or denied.
This blog will keep the status updated as information is received.

I do not envy the position the Bar Examiners are in with deciding to approve or deny his application because, I think they could regret it if they let Hoff become a lawyer as his history suggests it will be a matter of time before complaints begin to pile against him.
At the same time though, if they deny the application, they should expect to be made into a spectacle circus because of Hoff's history of appealing and fighting every ruling that went against him.

My hope is that Hoff will be denied a license because, John as a lawyer would mean no one is safe from his attacks. A crazed Hoff with access to court records that are not available to non-lawyers is frankly a very disturbing situation that I hope will never happen.
