According to the superseding indictment Hoffner owned the Brown Street Pub in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

At his guilty plea hearing on July 31, 2017, Hoffner admitted that on 40 occasions between September and December 2012, Hoffner used a stolen credit number to make charges at the pub to credit and debit cards issued by American Express, Navy Federal Credit Union, USAA, ACNB, and the State Employees Credit Union of Maryland.

The average fraudulent charge was more than $2,000. The cardholders were not aware of and did not authorize these transactions.

The proceeds of these transactions, more than $87,000, went into an account that Hoffner controlled.
