Grand Jury Urges Charges Against Pennsylvania Attorney General

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan 8 (Reuters) - A grand jury has recommended criminal charges against Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane for alleged grand jury leaks, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported on Thursday.

It will be up to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman to decide whether to affirm the grand jury finding and charge Kane. She is accused of leaking investigative material to a newspaper in an effort to embarrass political enemies, the Inquirer said, citing sources close to the case.
