Kane seeks $1 million immediately in divorce case

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – Convicted former Pennsylvania attorney general Kathleen Kane is asking a judge to order her estranged husband to immediately provide $1 million of about $6 million she contends she should receive in their divorce.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reports that Kane filed a petition last Thursday saying she needs a partial distribution of joint assets to pay attorney fees as she prepares for sentencing and appeal of her perjury conviction.

The petition said she is now unemployed and has no income other than the alimony and child support he pays for their two sons, which court records show totals $19,000 a month.

Kane resigned Aug. 17, two days after her conviction on charges of leaking secret grand jury information and lying to cover it up. Sentencing is scheduled Oct. 24.
