PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Prosecutors will seek a jail or prison sentence for former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane in a perjury and obstruction case.
Kane faces sentencing next week after a jury convicted her of leaking grand jury material to a newspaper and then lying about it under oath.
The 50-year-old Kane has two school-age children and will push for probation or house arrest at the Oct. 24 hearing.
The first-term Democrat from the Scranton area stepped down after her August conviction on two felony and seven misdemeanor counts.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele argues in a memo Monday that Kane abused her power to settle a personal vendetta.
He says he will seek consecutive sentences on many of the counts. He says the maximum sentence is 12 to 24 years in prison.
