Ex-Attorney General Kane set for release from jail Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

EAGLEVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A former Pennsylvania attorney general is about to be released from a county jail after serving about eight months for leaking grand jury material and lying about it.

Montgomery County Correctional Facility Warden Julio Algarin said Tuesday that Kathleen Kane shaved about two months off her minimum sentence by serving her time without any problems. She's scheduled for release early Wednesday.

The 53-year-old Kane was sentenced to 10-to-23 months for perjury, obstruction and other counts. She turned herself in to the jail at the end of November.

She was the first Democrat and first woman to be elected the state's top prosecutor.

A special prosecutor was named to investigate Kane after former prosecutors with the attorney general's office reported that secret grand jury material had been leaked to a newspaper.
