Ex-head of Boston FBI office faces ethics charge

A retired assistant director of the FBI who once headed the bureau’s Boston office was charged in federal court Thursday with a criminal ethics violation in having professional, work-related contacts with his former colleagues within a year of leaving his public job.

Kenneth Kaiser, 57, of Hopkinton, a 27-year veteran of the FBI who left to work as a consultant, faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine on a charge of making prohibited postemployment contacts, a misdemeanor. He has not yet appeared in court.
