On Tuesday, a judge refused Democrat Kathleen Kane another appeal. Her 2016 conviction on perjury and other charges remains and she’s expected to serve jail time.

The judge stated that the former attorney general was to report to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility on Thursday morning.

More than two-years-ago Democrat Kathleen Kane, 52, was convicted for leaking grand jury information and lying about it. At the time, she was set free on $75,000 bail.

She then started appealing her 10-to-23-month sentence. The state Supreme Court refused to hear her latest appeal leading to Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy ordering her to report to prison on Thursday by 9 a.m.

"Given that the rationale for (the) defendant remaining at liberty pending appeal has expired, post-sentence bail is revoked.”

The judge also formally directed the Lackawanna County sheriff to serve a copy of her order to Kane, who lives in Scranton. A jury in Montgomery County had found that Kane leaked confidential information about a former subordinate to a newspaper and then lied about it when questioned.

When she was arrested in 2015, her different legal teams had filed several court appeals. They tried to get her charges dropped and also attempted to allow favorable evidence at her trial.

Her legal team also tried overturning her conviction; however, she lost every appeal she made. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele spoke on the case.

He wrote:

"Two different appellate courts have reviewed her case, yet her judgment of sentence remains. She received a fair trial, her guilt was proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and now it is time to serve her sentence."

Kane was convicted of two counts of felony perjury and seven misdemeanors which included obstruction and conspiracy. She resigned from office after her October 2016 conviction.

A source close to the case revealed that Kane's lawyer, Joshua Lock, had spent part of the day trying to negotiate her surrender.

Kane is an American politician and lawyer who served as the 48th attorney general of Pennsylvania from 2013 until her resignation in 2016. She is the first woman and first Democrat to be elected as Pennsylvania’s attorney general.
