Pennsylvania Attorney General Convicted In Grand Jury Leak

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane enters the courtroom on August 11. A jury has convict3ed her of leaking grand jury information and lying about it under oath.

Pennsylvania's top prosecutor has herself been found guilty of perjury, criminal conspiracy and other charges in a leak of grand jury material.

A jury found that Attorney General Kathleen Kane leaked confidential investigative material to a Philadelphia newspaper to get revenge on a political enemy and lied about it under oath, reports Katie Colaneri of member station WHYY.

Colaneri adds, "Once seen as a Democratic rising star, Pennsylvania law requires Kane to step down from the attorney general's office when she is sentenced within the next three months."

It's a complicated case, as The Two-Way has reported:

"Kane is accused of leaking secret grand jury information in order to harm political foes. The Democratic attorney general insists the charges against her are being brought as a kind of revenge, because when Kane investigated the Sandusky case, she also uncovered a trove of emails in which she says officials were found to have used government email accounts "to trade pornographic and bigoted images and jokes."
