    A judge has set a preliminary hearing for Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane on charges including a felony count of perjury.

    Kane did not enter a plea during her five-minute arraignment Saturday in a Montgomery County courtroom and did not speak other than to respond to the judge yes or no.

    Magisterial District Judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar set a preliminary hearing for Aug. 24 and set bail for $10,000 unsecured bond.

    The 49-year-old Kane maintains she is innocent amid growing calls for her resignation from editorialists and fellow Democrats, including Gov. Tom Wolf.

    Prosecutors say Kane leaked grand jury information to a newspaper to get even with a former state prosecutor she thought made her look bad. They also say she enlisted aides to spy on office employees and others to keep tabs on a grand jury probe into the leak.
