Former AG Now CON

Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is behind bars after reporting to a suburban Philadelphia jail to begin serving a prison sentence for leaking grand jury material and lying about it. Kane was smiling broadly as she arrived at the Montgomery County jail Thursday morning to begin her 10-to-23 month prison term for perjury, obstruction and other counts. She resigned following her 2016 conviction but was allowed to remain out on $75-thousand dollars bail pending appeals. Her bail was revoked early this week after she exhausted her appeals. The 52-year-old Scranton native had once been considered a rising political star in the state after becoming the first Democrat and first woman to be elected the state’s top prosecutor.
