Brooklyn, NY - Serious legal issues are said to be looming for former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes, with sources reporting that a probe of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office may result in indictments within the next few days.

According to the New York Post, a federal grand jury will be meeting this week in regard to alleged improprieties by Hynes.

A 27 page report released by the New York City Department of Investigation in 2014 accused Hynes of using forfeiture funds to pay political consultant Mortimer Matz $1.1 million.  The DOI report also said that Judge Barry Kamins improperly provided Hynes with legal, campaign and judicial advice.  Kamins ultimately stepped down from his post as the chief administrator for the New York City Criminal Court as a result of the DOI report.
Both Hynes and his lawyer Robert Hill Schwartz were unable to comment due for medical reasons.

The 81 year old Hynes, who served as district attorney for more than two decades, is recovering from a “serious and incapacitating stroke” according to Schwartz’s office, while Schwartz is recovering from open heart surgery.

When will Hynes get indicted for refusing to go hard against frum child molesters because community leaders gave him votes and other favors?

Wasn't Hymes responsible for the Hynes Commission. They sent to jail a lot of nursing home owners, including trumped up charges on Bernard Bergmen

You mean as in imprisoning an innocent person to appease the OTD rabble rousers.

C'mon, that only happened two or three times. One person's life is not as important as getting the other guilty ones.

What? No innocent person was incarcerated. There are quite loud voices in the OTD matter. However, none are focused at all on criminal charges against anyone. There are other advocates for that. I know of many of the cases who went to court. There was not a single conviction that was dishonest. There were others who got off the hook, unfairly to all.

The OTD issue, where I am personally involved, is not connected at all with the abuse issue. Yes, victims often go OTD. But there is much confusion and ignorance about the subject. Shvigger, go explore the facts before you respond to this.

Hynes is immoral in every way, but it won't matter because he's too sick to stand trial. #2 is right, he traded non-indictments for favors, bribes and other "incentives." I know one of his "incentives" and I want to know how she can live with herself.

Stop being so overprotective and be realistic. The Chraida community doesn't belong to you (you just happen to be a member of it like myself).
Sexual abuse has been out of control and shoved under the rug for decades which is a big cause to the OTD issue, the lousy education system is also a big problem for many years. It's time we work together to improve these matters.
You can call them rabble rousers I call it facing reality and constructive criticism him. Nothing wrong to get together and fix problems. You don't have to agree with the brave voices in our community that are not afraid to address these concerns. It's very easy to Mach Avekk and make Letzunas like what you are doing, let's see you do the right thing and step up to the plate and say it the way it is.

He and the Rockland county DA should share a jail cell for all the Frum pedophiles they protected and refused to prosecute.

He's not that sick to stand trial. He needs to be punished for hurting our kinder.

you have no idea, in this day and age you can make a comment to a girl, and if she doesn't like that comment she can go to the authorities and say you touched her, and they will believe her, and ruin your career and reputation, besides it costing you a fortune in lawyer fees, same with those allegations, they dont have evidence in alot of these cases, besides, we have a torah that forbids us to ruin somebody's life through messira just becaused he touched you, and c'mmon, your life wasnt ruined because somebody touched you 8 yrs ago, its an excuse most of the time to go OTD,

Look up to the sky and thank Hashem that no one abused you when you were young, thank Hashem that you don't know what it means to be abused and Thank Hashem that you don't understand The damage and repercussions as a result of abuse. I wish I was as lucky as you.

molesting is forcible touching, alot of these cases dont involve sodomy, forcible touching is a crime too of course, but these movements blow it out of proportion and make up stuff too.

i had a rebbe touch me too, so what? i grew a successful businessman and i learn torah too, did my life change because of a piggy?no.

can i make a case and rouse some rabble and cry crocodile tears how my life changed blah blah blah? of course i could, and the antisemitic goyim will buy it for good money, but i have a shulchan aruch which tells me that messirah is a crime, i dont take my permit to do messirah from some website or Mr Rosenbergs hotline, i have real rabbonim, also i believe that one day i will stand before hashem and give an account for all my sins, and i wouldnt want to have bloodshed on my hands, and this is what this is, bloodshed plain and simple, and yes even weberman who did some really bad things, why does he deserve 103 years? thats an execution not a sentence, you think any of these guys believe in din vcheshbon? what will they say in shamayim, mr rosenberg told me its not messirah? gimme a break

You seem to be very lucky and unaffected by the rebbe that touch you.. That's another reason you should consider yourself lucky and thank Hashem.. Sexual abuse is like a bad hurricane, some buildings may survive while others don't.

I don't see anything wrong that people should finally learn that our kids are not hefker and will not fall for your twisted Hilchas Mesira excuses. Yesh din V'yesh Dayen.
And btw A Rodefh needs to be locked up according to the Torah.

Even if he did bad things... 103 years?? Easy for you to say when it's not your child. You make me throw up with your dangerous, inappropriate and misplaced Rachmunas.
