NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — Prosecutors are asking a Montgomery County judge to deny disgraced Attorney General Kathleen’s request for house-arrest when she is sentenced later this month.
Prosecutors say Kathleen Kane is not eligible for house arrest because, in Montgomery County, it is only offered to a defendant who would go to county prison, not state prison.READ MORE: First Confirmed Cases Of COVID-19 Omicron Variant Reported In Philadelphia, New Jersey
It also disputes Kane’s claim she is primary caregiver to her children, pointing to a pre-sentencing investigation in which Kane said she has 50/50 custody of her children with her ex-husband.
The motion also said house arrest is only a consideration to someone dealing with a serious medical condition.
Kane’s lawyer said she is a candidate for house arrest as she’s a non-violent offender, with no prior record, a low risk to commit another crime.READ MORE: Joel Embiid's Late Jumper Caps 76ers' Rally Past Hawks, 98-96
