Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman announced charges today against Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane. The charges come after a lengthly investigation by the Montgomery County District Attorney's office after a grand jury recommended charges against the state's top prosecutor back in January. Kane is charged with obstruction of administration of law, official oppression, criminal conspiracy, perjury and false swearing. She is accused of leaking confidential information from a 2009 grand jury investigation to the Philadelphia Daily News to embarrass political rivals and lying about it in front of another grand jury last year. Kane has maintained her innocence and vowed to stay in office. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is calling on her to step aside. 49-year-old Kane is expected to turn herself in within the next two days.

She released a statement, “I am very disappointed the district attorney has made the decision to pursue this case. I have maintained my innocence from the day these allegations surfaced and I continue to do so today. I intend to defend myself vigorously against these charges. I look forward to the opportunity to present my case in a public courtroom and move beyond the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that has defined the process to this point.”

Governor Wolf said today, “In this criminal complaint, Attorney General Kathleen Kane was charged with official oppression; she was charged with obstruction of administration of law; she was charged with perjury. These are the charges and there are other serious charges, and they are troubling... I am calling on her to step aside, step down as attorney general, because I think she cannot do what she has to do as the top law enforcement officer in Pennsylvania while she's facing these serious charges."

Officials have confirmed that the body found in Darby Creek on Wednesday afternoon belongs to an 11-year-old boy missing since Monday. Laquan Lattimore of Folcroft, Delaware County had been missing since 3 p.m. Monday. He was last seen in the area of King Avenue and Chester Pike on his bicycle. Authorities say that no foul play is suspected and that it appears his death was accidental. The exact cause of death has not been determined.

Philadelphia Police have released surveillance footage of a violent attack with a bat in North Philadelphia on Tuesday. It started just before midnight on Tuesday night as a 26-year-old female was driving north on Broad Street at Lehigh Ave. The driver of an SUV began to beep at her. The SUV followed her to 16th and Clearfield streets where a man jumped out and began to smash on her car and windows with a bat. The woman got out of the car and he hit her a handful of times as well. The man got into the passenger side of the SUV and was driven off by a female. The victim was taken to Temple University Hospital and treated for a laceration on her hand and contusions. The suspect is described as a black male, 40 years of age, bald, wearing an orange shirt and blue jeans. If you have any information call 215.686.TIPS (8477). Watch the video below:
