Kane Camp Confident Despite Delays

Patrick Kane: Did he or didn't he? The defense is confident that he did not....

Erie County DA Frank Sedita will soon be a State Supreme Court Justice.


It is still not clear if Patrick Kane will be in training camp opening day at Notre Dame on Friday (Sept. 18) with the Chicago Blackhawks as the investigation continues into claims by a former UB cheerleader that Kane raped her on the morning of Aug. 2 at his lakefront home following a night of partying.

However it is clear the NHL and the Blackawks are in a tough spot given the ongoing investigation into the young superstar winger who so far has gotten the worst of the media surrounding the alleged rape incident but who has not been formally charged with any crime.

As we have reported for several weeks now, it appears the Kane camp, led by high-profile Buffalo defense attorney Paul Cambria, is confident the 26-year-old hockey star will ultimately be cleared of the charge leveled by the 21-year-old former UB cheerleader, but we have learned that other factors may be holding up a final move by the defense to clear Kane once and for all.

Kane, who has won three Stanley Cup titles with the Blackhawks, recently signed an $84 million contract extension that has been well publicized and could be in jeopardy if he were to be formally charged in the Hamburg case.  But despite the high stakes, Cambria has told this newspaper that no plea negotiations or civil settlement talks have taken place, a clear sign the high profile attorney is confident of Kane’s innocence.

Grand jury proceedings have been delayed and Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita, who is expected to receive a bipartisan nomination for a state Supreme Court judgeship in a few days, has not publicly commented on the Kane case and Cambria, except for the “no-settlement talks” quote, is also staying mum.

Look for Kane to be in the Blackhawks camp on Friday.
