James J. "Jimmy" Hines
Birth: 1876
Death: Mar. 26, 1957

Jimmy Hines was a powerful Tammany Hall political boss in New York City during the 1920's and 1930's. His close association with such organized crime bosses as Lucky Luciano and Dutch Schultz caused New York District attorney Thomas E. Dewey to prosecute Hines on corruption charges in the mid-1930's. He was convicted in 1939 of accepting $200,000 in bribes from Dutch Schlutz and served five years in prison. (bio by: Bill Heneage)
