Lawyer for Kane says special prosecutor had too much power

01.18.18 | Brandon Dickson

The attorney for former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen told a panel of appeals judges this week that the decision to give the special prosecutor grand jury authority violated rules about separation of powers.

A prosecutor countered by calling Kane's argument “window dressing” and says important evidence in the case didn't come from the grand jury.

Kane was convicted of leaking secret information then lying about it. Her lawyers are seeking dismissal of the charges or a retrial.
