Kane Asks for House Arrest

kane-sadKathleen Kane would prefer not going to prison.

According to Wallace McKelvey of the Patriot-News, former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane wants to be considered for house arrest in order to avoid a stay in state prison.

Last August, a twelve person jury found Kane guilty after prosecutors argued that she organized a leak of secret grand jury materials and then lied about it in order to get revenge against her political rivals. Kane did not testify at trial and resigned two days after the verdict was announced.

If the presiding judge, Wendy Demchick-Alloy, decides to deny Kane’s request at her Oct. 24th sentencing, Kane could face up to 28 years in prison.

“[Kane] respectfully submits that, as a non-violent offender with no prior record and a low risk of recidivism and who is the primary caregiver for two minor children, she is an appropriate candidate for House Arrest,” wrote Marc Steinberg, Kane’s attorney, in a court filing submitted on Thursday.

If the request is approved, Kane’s situation will be assessed to determine if house arrest is a suitable course of action.

The filing states that, if approved, Kane’s house arrest would be supervised by Brian Jeffers, director of Lackawanna County Community Corrections.

Prosecutors were given until Friday to respond to Kane’s request.

    “This is war”….Kane is like a vampire and needs to be in jail away from decent people who believed and trusted her.

  3. NZV says:

    I’m ok with this. She will never practice law or hold elected office again, I’d say she is sufficiently ruined. No need to take up a jail cell that could be used for a violent criminal.

  4. HaHaHa says:

    LOL at liberal Dems (Philly Politico, gulag Pittsburgh) saying that a long jail term is not appropriate. If Tom Corbett had done exactly the same thing as Kane, these same idiots would be calling for a couple decades in prison.

    And, Keith, there were no “pedophile” emails. You may recall that Kane said “child porn” on CNN and embarrassed herself. She had to walk that comment back because (like so many other statements to the media) it was untrue.

  5. Observer 2 says:

    Well, Claude Thomas just struck out in front of 8 thoughtful judges. I gave the rest the benefit of the doubt, although the departure of so many justices suggests you are part right.

  6. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    Anything beyond a year would be abusive of the guidelines. As for thoughtful consideration by a judge, that brings howls of laughter for a “political” crime in PA. Those defrocked PA Supreme Court justices will be doing all they can to get revenge.

  7. PhillyPolitico says:

    There is virtually no reason to send her to prison, and even fewer reasons to punish her long term. She’s highly unlikely to do this again, and there’s little reason to believe other people need to be detered.

  8. Observer 2 says:

    The guidelines basically say probation or a few months. Deviating from the guidelines requires an explanation by the judge, and judges usually don’t deviate much. A sentence of 14-28 years would be reversed.

    Like it or not, sentences are based on the judge’s discretionary but thoughtful evaluation of all circumstances involved. The fact that her primary target was emailing porn to two now-resigned justices and his recent sponsor is under federal investigation – hardly reason to give her the max.

    And if you think it’s more political than thoughtful, well, it’s unlikely the GOP cares much about KK now that she’s out of the picture, and the Dems that cared have bigger things to worry about like the wolf at their own door.

  9. Keith says:

    Lots of people calling for prison; wonder how many of them are involved with the Porngate scandal that Kane uncovered. Perhaps a few people Kane locked up too. Probably a couple pedophiles.

  10. ANONYMOUS says:

    Throw the book at her. 14-24 years seems appropriate for the level of shame she brought to PA courts and lack of remorse. She is charged with up holding the law and she broke it instead. Give her a week for every day she was in office – 14 years. PA voters are disgusted by her. She retaliated against josh morrow. She went on TV and said she “didn’t regret anything,” and she lied and lied and lied and acted like she was above it till the bitter end. Hard jail time is what the voters want to see…. ANd as for those kids of hers, I don’t want to hear that excuse from her stupid lying mouth…. Every chance she had she played those two little boys as political pawns, running them through her absurd news conferences, and using them as pawns to extort more money out of her husband in the divorce settlement. She is a truly disgusting human baing, and she needs to be made an example of. Judge Alloy Demchick should sentence her to within the MAX sentencing guidelines, and that will just be a small step in repairing the faith of the voters in the OAG which Kathleen Kane DESTROYED singlehandedly. WHat a disgusting degenerate criminal she is, SENTENCE HER WITHIN THE MAXIMUM RANGE.

    And when Kevin Steele is done with her, he should start on Stacy Parks Miller.

  11. Militant Republican Moderate says:

    She can not use the Jesse Jackson Jr. defense of saying that the kids will be deprived of both parents if they go to jail at the same time. The Kane family should sue her and her sister for ruining their family name.

  12. Wally says:

    It will be interesting to see if Hillary Clinton auctions off her stool sample to raise money for Kathleen Kane’s legal defense fund.

  13. Mike's mother says:

    The beneficiaries here are then entire population of PA, minus of course those perverts that her exposure of porn emails got kicked out of office. Cleaner courts and prosecution offices, with Philly DA still to go, bodes well for an easy sentence.

  14. incensed says:

    The “victims” here are political enemies, there was no violence, and she did not seek to profit from these acts.

    Tell that to Adrian King who she tried to frame. He was her former boyfriend and she tried to destroy him. Kathy Kane is evil.

  15. Observer 2 says:

    It should not, and likely will not, be a long term. The “victims” here are political enemies, there was no violence, and she did not seek to profit from these acts.

    In fact it probably serves democracy well to have a couple of politicians tear each other apart.

    Her career is over. Anything else is just piling on. Save the space for criminals who’ve caused bodily or financial harm to others.

  16. incensed says:

    yes, prison for her. Let’s see what color her hair is in 6 months….no hair dye or wigs in prison

  17. Sean says:

    The judge better send her to PRISON! We’re all sick of seeing wealthy elites abuse power and get off easily.
