Former DA Charles Hynes.

Former Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes will resolve a dispute with the city concerning his use of an official e-mail account during his re-election campaign in 2013.

As part of the settlement – being made with the Conflict of Interest Board of the City of New York (COIB) and announced on Tuesday, March 27 – Hynes, a Flatbush native who served as DA from 1990 to 2013, will pay a $40,000 fine.

“In the midst of a feverishly contested primary race, I made the mistake of using my city email for campaign-related matters,” Hynes said. “If anyone is to blame for this, it should be me and me alone. I hope my decision to resolve the matter early causes the COIB to leave my former staff alone; they did nothing wrong and they served the public good doggedly every day they came to work.”
