Lynbrook resident named first female village prosecutor


Lynbrook resident Christine DiGregorio Esq. was appointed as the village’s first female prosecutor by Mayor Alan Beach on Feb. 22.

DiGregorio will fill the vacancy at the position left by Robert Boccio, who was sworn in as a village trustee in December after Hilary Becker was named the deputy mayor to Beach. The prosecutor represents the citizens of Lynbrook in prosecuting violators of the village code and traffic laws.

“Many cases come before the village justice concerning property maintenance, Illegal housing violations, traffic and parking violations,” DiGregorio said in a news release, “and I look forward to assuming this important responsibility”

The Lynbrook Police Department is credited with generating nearly $2.5 million in fines annually, which is in the top 10 in the state. DiGregorio’s duties will also make her “part of the team that has been credited with combating illegal apartments in the village,” Boccio said.

DiGregorio graduated from Kellenberg High School in Uniondale and was third in her class at Touro Law Center in Central Islip. Beach said that DiGregorio’s legal skills “will be an asset to the community.”
