Pa Attorney General Kane Cite Conflicts As Sting Investigation Is Halted

04.25.14 | Terry Diener

Two weeks after state Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane challenged Philadelphia's district attorney to take over the sting investigation she shut down, her office said Wednesday that she would not turn over the case file until certain legal issues were resolved. In a letter to Williams, Kane raised "potential conflicts" Williams faced in handling the case. Her spokesman J.J. Abbott cited, without elaboration, concerns about privacy provisions of the Pennsylvania Wiretap Act.  Williams said Wednesday that he faced no conflict and accused Kane of raising bogus issues.
