NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane returns to the defense table and a former boyfriend-turned-top deputy to the witness stand when Kane’s perjury case resumes.
Kane, a first-term Democrat, is accused of leaking secret grand jury documents to the press and lying about it under oath.
Authorities say she violated the state’s grand jury laws and tarnished an NAACP official who was investigated but never charged.
The defense says the material wasn’t confidential.
Government witness Adrian King returns to the stand Thursday for more cross-examination from Kane’s lawyers. He and Kane dated in law school and years later he became her top deputy.
But King now thinks Kane is trying to frame him for the leak.
