Results of probe into inappropriate emails to be released Tuesday

    Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has announced that preliminary results of an investigation into inappropriate emails found on state servers will be released Tuesday.

    Kane in December ordered the review by former Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler of offensive, sometimes raunchy and sometimes pornographic material shared among judges, prosecutors and others in the criminal justice system.

    Gansler said in March that it was unlikely that the probe would result in criminal charges but indicated that he intends to make all of the material public.

    The email scandal has led to resignations, firings or disciplinary action as well as retirement of two state Supreme Court justices and ethics charges against one of them.

    Kane faces an August trial on charges that she leaked secret grand jury material, allegations she hotly denies.
