Figure in Cosby case to assume job of top cop

Figure in Cosby case to assume job of top cop

Democrat Kane was elected in 2012.

Cohen says he knows Castor well, and that they spoke Tuesday before Castor held his news conference. She could potentially stay in office until January 17, when a new attorney general selected by voters in the November election will be sworn in. He testified Kane told him it was no big deal. In the campaign, Steele bashed Castor for his refusal to press charges against Cosby in an alleged assault in 2004.Earlier this year, Castor testified in court that he didn't think he had a viable criminal case against Cosby. Carluccio did not advance the charges but sent the panel's conclusions to then-Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.

"There is to be absolutely no retaliation of any kind against any witness in this case, either by your own devices, from your own mouth or your hand, or directing anybody to do anything", the judge said, according to The New York Times.

Summary: Convicted Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced today that she will resign. Kane's conviction and resignation mark the apparent conclusion of a long and dirty public fight between her and her rivals. The Democrat resigned amid pressure from Wolf and lawmakers a day after jurors found her guilty of abusing her power and lying to cover it up.

"For her, personally, it was the right thing to do", state Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-South Union Township, said of Kane's resignation.

Kane now faces prison time for the conviction. Her defense attorney said she plans to appeal her conviction, and that she was wrongfully accused.

"I do not believe Kathleen Kane should be Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania".

Miami Beach official: No confirmation of Zika spreading
Morales said the city has been "proactively focused on the elimination of potential breeding sites for months". Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said that the American people can not afford to wait any longer for action.

Kane claimed she did nothing wrong and has implied the charges were part of an effort to force her out of office because she discovered pornographic emails being exchanged between state employees on state email addresses.

As The Washington Post's Juliet Eilperin reported in 2013, Kane beat establishment figures in both her own party and the GOP to become the state's highest-ranking law enforcement officer. She won more votes in Pennsylvania that year than President Obama.

"I told her it would be very hard to remain in light of the developments in Montgomery County", Castor said on Tuesday. She announced her plans to resign on August 16, reports The Associated Press. Now, she's facing jail time and has had her law license suspended.

"Pennsylvania can not have a top law enforcement officer who is convicted of breaking the laws she was elected to enforce".

Kane's top deputy, Bruce Castor will assume her duties now that she's resigning following her perjury conviction in a grand jury leak case. That includes perjury, obstructing administration of law, official oppression, false swearing and conspiracy.

"When Kane, the wife of a wealthy Scranton businessman, ran for attorney general previous year, she benefited from a Bill Clinton political score that needed to be settled", explained Salena Zito of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in 2013.
