Kane Sentenced To 10 To 23 Months For Leaking Grand Jury Documents, Committing Perjury

Former Attorney General Kathleen Kane Monday was sentenced to 10 to 23 months in prison and 8 years probation for leaking grand jury documents and then lying about it under oath.
At the sentencing hearing, tearful Kane pleaded with the Court for leniency, even having her 15-year old son testify on her behalf.
Also at the hearing, prosecutors had former staff from the Attorney General’s Office testify that Kane terrorized them and demoralized their workplace.
Prosecutors said Kane will serve her prison time at the Eagleville Correctional Facility in Montgomery County.
PennLive.com reported Kathleen Kane's attorney Marc Steinberg says he believes the court handed down an appropriate sentence.
Attorney General Bruce R. Beemer released the following statement after the sentencing of Kathleen Kane:  "Today is another sad day for the Commonwealth and its citizens," Attorney General Beemer said. "The Office of Attorney General is moving forward with steps to restore the public's confidence in the work that we do and the way that we do it.
"The men and women of the OAG are dedicated public servants who do their jobs with integrity on a daily basis. That is what the public expects and deserves."
WGAL-TV reported there was also a parking ticket on Kane’s vehicle outside the Montgomery County Courthouse.
