Former head of Boston FBI pleads guilty to illegal contacts

A former head of the Boston FBI office admitted Thursday that he had illegal contacts with the bureau after retiring, when he had work-related meetings with agents while working as a consultant.

Kenneth W. Kaiser, 57, of Hopkinton pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston to a misdemeanor charge that he had contact with the FBI as a consultant within one year of his retirement, which is prohibited by law. He was released on personal recognizance, with sentencing scheduled for Dec.17. Kaiser had no comment after the hearing.
