Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane leaves the courtroom after closing arguments in her perjury and obstruction trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse, Monday, Aug. 15, 2016, in Norristown, Pa.

(Harrisburg) — Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is losing her law license, a few months after she began a jail sentence for perjury, obstruction and other counts.

The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued a disbarment order on Friday.

Kane was convicted in 2016 for leaking information about a grand jury investigation to a Philadelphia newspaper and lying about it.
