Kane Will Release Sandusky Case Review on Monday

Previous reports say it largely absolves Gov. Tom Corbett of wrongdoing.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane will release the results of her probe into the investigation of Jerry Sandusky on Monday, Newsworks reports.

Newsworks adds: “Kane has suggested that then-Attorney General Tom Corbett had a political motivation to slow the investigation while he was running for governor in 2010, something Corbett has strongly denied.”

Indeed, behind-the-scenes reports indicate’s Kane’s review largely absolved Corbett, with “no evidence whatsoever that any political influence was put to bear on the case, nor any evidence the investigation was slowed down for political influence,” although it’s suggested  “prosecutors could’ve searched Sandusky’s home sooner in the investigative process.”
