Hynes Credits Task Force For Intimidation Crackdown

Assistant Managing Editor

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes is weighing charges in as many as four more cases of possible intimidation of Orthodox sexual abuse victims as a result of a newly formed task force, he told The Jewish Week.

And he reiterated a warning, first made in May, that rabbis who “cross the line” and discourage people from taking complaints to authorities may be charged with obstructing governmental administration.

Charles Hynes: Says he believed Kol Tzedek was reducing intimidation until recently.
