  1. I laugh when Kane says she made a mistake! A mistake is when you lock your keys in the car or forget someones birthday, not lying to a grand jury about trying to destroy innocent peoples lives. Kane is not naive or stupid, she is evil.

  2. anyone who thinks she will get probation is in for a big surprise. perjury by office holders is the worst offense to the system. she may have coned the press and public for a while but she wont con this judge…bye bye kathy

  3. She better get jail or the whole nightmare she put us through was a joke to the court system.
