Attorney General Kathleen Kane scheduled to meet with Centre Daily Times today

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is scheduled to visit the Centre Daily Times offices at 1 p.m. Wednesday for an exclusive interview on the day after three former Penn State officials were bound over for trial in connection with the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

She will meet at 1 p.m. with the CDT editorial board as well as select reporters and photographers.

Kane will be asked questions related to the preliminary hearing for former Penn State President Graham Spanier, Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley. Prosecutors from Kane’s office presented evidence Monday and Tuesday in Harrisburg, and a judge bound the three men over for trial on perjury and other charges. They are accused of failing to report and then covering up Sandusky’s sexual abuse of children.

Kane also will be asked about her office’s ongoing investigation of the original Sandusky case, led by then-Attorney General Tom Corbett, who is now governor.

Other topics will include her efforts that led to the recent dismissal of Judge Barry Feudale, who oversaw the grand jury investigation of the Penn State scandal, and her decision not to defend in court Pennsylvania’s same-sex marriage ban.

Watch for updates on Twitter beginning at 1 p.m. Follow @centredailycom and reporter Mike Dawson @MikeDawsonCDT.

We’ll provide coverage at CentreDaily.com during and after the meeting, with a full report to follow in the Centre Daily Times on Thursday.
