Former Attorney General Kathleen Kane Released From Jail

After serving about eight months in the Montgomery County Correctional Facility, former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was released from jail Wednesday morning around 8:20 a.m., the AP reports. 

Kane reported to prison in late November to begin a 10 to 23 month sentence, but was released early due to good behavior, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. 

While exiting the facility, she told the press that she was “grateful” when she was asked how she felt. 

Kane was convicted and sentenced on perjury and other charges in 2016 relating to abusing power of the AG office in an attempt to smear former state prosecutor Frank Fina, a political enemy. She resigned from her position as AG after her conviction. 

Kane, once seen as a rising star in politics, was the first Democrat and first woman elected to Pennsylvania’s Attorney General position in 2012.

    1. That’s hilarious. The only thing that Kathy is going to be doing now is slinking back into private obscurity where being corrupt is regrettable, but not a felony on our dime.

    1. No. I was still digging the escape tunnel, and didn’t get the news of her release in time.

      I was 90% done. 🙂

  1. Another victim of the Zappala mafia…except junior got beat trying to replace her. The shades of Rolf Larsen didn’t completely unwind this time. The mob wasted a bullet for somebody else…unforgivable.

  2. In My Opinion The Powers that be set Kane up in Motgomery County to be Nailed Nothing she did took place in Montgomery County so why was she Tried in Court in Montgomery County ? This was a rigged Game . Just like they set up The Son of a Prominent State Judge in Montgomery County . The Government there is one of the Most Corrupt in the Country with Convicted Felon Robert ( Candy Man ) Asher calling all the shots . Speaking of that why is Felon Asher back making money off of Pennsylvania State Contracts ? Felon Asher went to Prison over things like that and here he is doing it all over again . Where is AG Josh Shapiro ? He should be investigating Felon Asher or is he just another one in the Pocket of Felon Asher ?

  3. She would probably be a lot more grateful, if she could see some of the porn mail judges and prosecutors go to jail.
