John Vincent (lawyer)
John Vincent was an American lawyer and politician from New York.
In January 1882, John McKeon took office as New York County District Attorney and appointed Vincent an Assistant D.A. After McKeon's death on November 22, 1883, Vincent was appointed by the Court of General Sessions as Acting D.A. pending the filling of the vacancy by the governor. On November 30, Governor Grover Cleveland appointed Wheeler H. Peckham as D.A. and Vincent resumed his post as Assistant D.A. After Peckham's resignation, D.A. Peter B. Olney retained Vincent as Assistant D.A. and both remained in office until the end of 1884. Afterwards Vincent resumed the practice of law.
In November 1887, Vincent ran on the United Labor ticket for the New York Supreme Court (1st D.) but was defeated.
