NORRISTOWN, Pa., (AP) –– A judge has ordered Pennsylvania’s top prosecutor to stand trial on charges she leaked secret grand jury information and lied about her actions under oath.

The ruling Monday came after a hearing in which a lawyer for Attorney General Kathleen Kane tried to get at least some of the charges dropped.

Kane is charged with one felony count of perjury, and misdemeanor counts of official oppression, obstruction and false swearing.

She has denied any wrongdoing.

Prosecutors allege she leaked grand jury information from a 2009 case to embarrass a rival prosecutor.
