Jury Selected For Kathleen Kane’s Trial

Kane Press ConferenceThe next step in Kathleen Kane’s trial has been completed, although it took some patience.

One by one for 8 hours on Monday, 100 potential jurors were questioned and examined by Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy and attorneys in her chambers, according to Wallace McKelvey of the Patriot-News. Kane was relatively upbeat, though, smiling and even shaking hands on her way in.

Just past 6 p.m. the jury was finally selected, six men and six women with 4 alternates.

Tomorrow the jury will gather for instruction and opening arguments.

The Attorney General is facing twelve counts, two counts of perjury as well as ten misdemeanors. Those misdemeanors include: three counts of official oppression, three counts of conspiracy, two counts of false swearing and two counts of obstruction.

    Diano – check back in one week when Kane is officially convicted felon.

    My personal prediction: guilty on counts relating to the underlying leak; guilty on the perjury count related to her contention that she had not read the Mondesie article; not guilty on the purjury count realted to the secrecy oath.

    Jessica Myers-

    Most of the women I talk to about this are convinced the entire thing is a witch hunt (or as some women called it: “a bitch hunt” by the old boys network). They think it’s completely motivated to take down a woman who exposed their sexism and racism.

    I don’t know where you get your stat about women and female defendants, but this case is more about political and prosecutorial abuse and selective enforcement. The perjury charges are trumped up to try and cover for a weak case that amounts to nothing.

  3. Jessica Myers says:

    Diano – your relentless ignorance remains unrelenting. Women jurors are typically much harsher on women defendants. Men, on the other, are typically much more lenient on women defendants.

    But you wouldn’t know this because you’ve never tried a case. Wait, you’re not even a lawyer. Wait, you don’t even work in the legal profession. What exactly do you for a living?

    I still think that “popcorn” joke is funny. Also, I fully support Kathleen Kane telling lies under oath. Because she’s a Democrat.

  5. HaHaHa says:

    She doesn’t have to say that she did not know ehat she was signing. She may have been confused about what she signed. She may have forgotten what it said at the top. And she may not have even signed it. We don’t know.

    But we do know they searched their Office three times before they finally discovered it there after an “anonomous tip.” LMAO.

  6. Observer says:

    If the jury splits the way the poll went here on PPA, it’s an acquittal. Gotta be unanimous… Her best defense is to play dumb and say she didn’t know what all she signed on her first day at work.

  7. David Diano says:

    six women on the jury = Kane acquital

  8. HaHaHa says:

    Fina & The Corbett Pervs would look like the cops in “Making a Murderer”

    Regardless of the outcome of this trial, Kane did this State a huge favor taking those corrupt racists down.

    And of course she sidelined Castille (who had been talking about running for AG) and Eakin (dirty scum-bag) too.

  9. OldTimer says:

    Agreed…this should be live on TV for all to see.

  10. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    They should put this on C-span live.

    POPCORN ready !!!
