She probably should have gotten more time, especially after being convicted on nine counts including perjury and conspiracy. Still, that she got some jail time is better than nothing.

From The Daily Beast:

The former Democratic attorney general of Pennsylvania, who was convicted in August on nine criminal charges, including perjury and conspiracy, was sentenced Monday to 10 to 23 months in jail. Kathleen Kane, 50, left office in August while facing the charges for having orchestrated a leak of secret grand-jury documents to plant a negative story about her political opponent, former state prosecutor Frank Fina. Kane was also later found to have lied about her actions under oath. Instead of jail time, the top attorney sought either probation or house arrest instead of jail time. During her sentencing hearing, Kane reportedly said, “I don’t care what happens to me,” but pleaded with the judge to have “mercy” on her two sons, whom she said a jail sentence would affect the hardest.

Sorry, but this kind of corruption is the worst kind. When you abuse the power of your office to hurt political opponents, house arrest and probation is not enough.
