SCRANTON -- Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is resigning after a jury convicted her of perjury and obstruction of justice.
Kane is a native of Scranton and people in her hometown have mixed reactions to the past 48 hours.
It is a stunning fall from grace for the first female elected attorney general in Pennsylvania. People we spoke with say she was once the pride of the Electric City, but no more.
"I mean, I think it's obviously terrible, but I think everyone should get the consequences done to them. You do the crime, you pay the time. That's what I believe," said Kacie Kuchinskas of Scranton.
Kane was convicted of leaking secret grand jury information and lying about it.
In a statement Tuesday, she thanked Pennsylvanians and wished them well.
Bruce Castor, the first deputy attorney general is taking her place.
“Once the jury has spoken, it becomes very difficult for any law enforcement officer to have credibility with even the appeal of a criminal conviction of a serious nature,” Castor said.
Kathleen Kane is a native of Scranton and people we spoke with say what happened has really given the city a black eye.
"Probably embarrassing for the whole county, makes the whole county look bad. And there's people who voted her in, so they're probably upset about that, too," said Keith Black of Scranton.
Newswatch 16 did reach out to Kane for an interview. She told us she wasn't able to speak with the media.
