Prosecutor says she’ll review allegations against AG Kane

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A county prosecutor says she’ll review evidence and other material from an investigation that prompted a grand jury to recommend that Pennsylvania’s attorney general be charged with perjury and other offenses.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman said Wednesday the review will determine if a more detailed investigation is needed into allegations against Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

The state Supreme Court determined Tuesday that a judge acted properly in appointing the special prosecutor who looked into how secret grand jury material was published by a newspaper last year.

Ferman says her review will include a report by Thomas Carluccio, the special prosecutor, along with “voluminous information” gathered by the grand jury.

Kane denies she broke any law. The grand jury recommended charges of perjury, obstruction, false swearing and official oppression.
