Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspends Attorney General Kathleen Kane's license | News - Home
- Pennsylvania's highest court is ordering the suspension of Attorney General Kathleen Kane's law license, a step that could trigger a Senate vote to remove her as she faces criminal charges. Monday's order by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court comes barely a month after Montgomery County authorities arrested her on charges she leaked secret investigative information and then lying under oath. In the order, the court said it shouldn't be construed as removing her from office, raising legal questions. The court's disciplinary lawyers have argued that Kane admitted that she authorized the release of secret investigative information. Quick Clicks Pa. AG Kathleen Kane argues against law license suspension Kane's current lawyers said she never admitted it and that she's innocent. They also said the court is violating Kane's constitutional rights. In a prepared statement, Kane said she is "grateful" the court recognizes her constitutional rights as an elected official and citizen, while being disappointed with its actions. "The court, in specifically recognizing my continuing authority as Attorney General of the Commonwealth, today allows me to continue the good works of this office," Kane said. "Work which has transformed our war on sex crimes and fraud; work which will also root out the culture of misogyny and racially/religiously offensive behavior that has permeated law enforcement and members of the judiciary in this Commonwealth for years."

(AP) - A national group representing the left and right of the political spectrum is concentrating on Michigan as ripe for criminal justice changes that include releasing parolees earlier and taming law enforcement's seizure of people's assets regardless of whether charges are filed. The U.S. Justice Action Network comprises groups such as the liberal American Civil Liberties Union and conservative FreedomWorks. The organization's executive director, Holly Harris, has been lobbying lawmakers and hopes legislation is enacted by year's end. Harris tells The Associated Press member organizations come at the issue from a different perspective but "all agree the reforms are necessary." The group also is targeting Ohio and Pennsylvania. It wants to safely reduce the prison population and associated "astronomical" incarceration costs, address over-criminalization and help ex-convicts successfully return to society.
