BREAKING: Kane Aide Convicted
Patrick Reese, who until recently was the AG’s driver and bodyguard, was found guilty of one count of indirect criminal contempt.
Reese was snooping into hundreds of office emails in violation of a protective order.
According to Brad Bumsted of the Tribune-Review, when asked about the verdict Reese merely shrugged and responded “You heard it.”
Meanwhile, Kathleen Kane’s spokesman said she will wait until sentencing to release a statement. Reese is currently free on bail but could face up to six months in prison.
For now, Reese will continue his current job as an investigator in the AG’s office.
