DA Hynes Visits Crown Heights

Ahead of a Town Hall meeting in Crown Heights, Brooklyn's District Attorney Charles Hynes met with council members.

Brooklyn's District Attorney Charles Hynes visited the offices of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council this past Thursday.

He presented a report on the efforts of his office in response to the latest incidents of crime towareds Jewish residents in the Brooklyn neighboorhood.

In a meeting that was designed to introduce the new CHJCC Board members to the DA, the wide-ranging discussion covered many areas in which the community can work together with the DA's office to reduce crime.

Mr. Hynes asked for the community's support on a new measure that he would like the State to adopt whereby criminals who are repeatedly convicted of misdemeanors, such as car break-ins, and now are subject to a maximum of one year of jail, would be able to be charged with a felony after the fifth conviction.

Mr. Hynes also assured that the pair of suspects arrested in the recent string of gun attacks will be prosecuted vigorously and that his office had been instructed to try to get a long jail term on conviction.

Members of the Community Council are slated to give a more complete report on the meeting with the DA at Town Hall Meeting Wednesday, Feb. 10, at the Lubavitcher Yeshivah, Crown and Albany, starting at 7pm.
