Eagleville, PA (AP Newswire) — Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is expected to be released from jail after serving less than a year for a grand jury secrecy violation.
The 53-year-old is scheduled to get out of the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in the Philadelphia suburbs on Wednesday morning.
Kane is a Scranton native who was the first Democrat and first woman elected to be the state’s top prosecutor.
She resigned after being convicted in 2016 of perjury, obstruction and other counts for leaking grand jury material and lying about it.
She began serving a 10- to 23-month term in late November, and had a couple months shaved off for good behavior.
Her lawyer says Kane can’t wait to get home to see her two sons.
