Former AG Kane loses appeal of criminal conviction

HARRISBURG, Pa. – A Pennsylvania appeals court is upholding the conviction of former attorney general Kathleen Kane for leaking secret grand jury information and lie about it.

Superior Court, on Friday, rejected the arguments of Kane, a Democrat convicted in 2016 to 10 of 23 months, but on bail.

The court is of the run claims that all Montgomery County judges should have been prevented from submitting her case, the evidence against her was illegally obtained, she was the victim of selective and vindictive prosecution and the judges have some information about grand jury secrecy rules.

The judges are the denial of her argument that she should be able to use evidence with respect to a pornographic e-mail scandal, or the Jerry Sandusky child abuse case.

Kane’s lawyer did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
