PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The former attorney general of Pennsylvania will soon learn whether she’s heading to prison in a perjury and obstruction case that involves a political feud.
Democrat Kathleen Kane is being sentenced Monday in Montgomery County, where former President Bill Clinton stumped for her in 2012.
Lawyers for the 50-year-old Kane say she’s been punished enough after losing her career, law license and reputation. They will ask for probation or house arrest so she can be home to raise her two teenage sons.
But prosecutors call the crimes “egregious” and will seek jail time.
They say she disgraced the office by plotting revenge on rivals and blaming others for a grand jury leak to the press.
Kane was convicted at trial in August. The maximum sentence is 12 to 24 years.
