Report- Grand Jury May Resume In The Patrick Kane Case

A western New York grand jury is expected to resume the sexual assault investigation into Blackhawks star Patrick Kane, his attorney told the Tribune on Thursday.

The Erie County district attorney's office postponed proceedings earlier this week, a move that raised questions about the direction of the high-profile case. Before the last-minute delay, Kane's accuser and a friend who was with her at Kane's lakefront home on the night of the alleged incident had been scheduled to appear before the grand jury Tuesday afternoon.

Kane's attorney, Paul Cambria, said Thursday that he did not know why prosecutors canceled the grand jury presentation but that the move did not come at his request. He also said he was told the proceedings would resume soon, though he would not discuss any other aspect of the case.

"We were informed that it (the grand jury) was rescheduled," Cambria said.

Sources said the case is slated to go before the grand jury in about two weeks, which puts it on a collision course with the Blackhawks' training camp, which opens Sept. 18.
