HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The judge handling Jerry Sandusky’s appeal says Attorney General Kathleen Kane has no proof that secret grand jury materials in the case were leaked.
Judge John Cleland ordered Kane to appear at the Pennsylvania Judicial Center in Harrisburg to testify under oath Thursday afternoon.
In an order written after the closed-door hearing, Cleland said Kane testified she is not aware of any information that proves confidential information in the case was leaked.
Kane told the judge and Sandusky’s lawyers that it was not her intention to give that impression.
Cleland wanted Kane to clarify statements she made last week when she accused Judge Barry Feudale, the presiding judge over several statewide investigative grand juries, of orchestrating a leak of sealed documents.
“The seriousness of this reckless breach of sealed Supreme Court documents, orchestrated by the presiding judge of a state investigative grand jury, with attorneys and the very reporters who have covered some of the Sandusky, Computergate, and Bonusgate cases, cannot be overstated,” Kane said in the statement.
