Ex-Boston FBI Chief To Plead Guilty In Ethics Case
BOSTON (AP) — The former head of the Boston FBI office has agreed to plead guilty to an ethics charge in an agreement that includes a recommendation from prosecutors that he serve no prison time and pay a $15,000 fine.
Kenneth Kaiser was charged this month with violating a federal ethics law by having professional contact with former FBI colleagues within a year of leaving government service.
The terms of the deal were described in a plea agreement filed Wednesday.
Kaiser headed the Boston office from 2003 until 2006, when he left to become an assistant director at FBI headquarters in Washington.
Prosecutors allege that within a year of retiring from the FBI in 2009 and going to work for a private company, Kaiser had professional contact with FBI agents investigating the company.
