"An attorney representing Patrick Kane’s accuser maintains “she had no knowledge of — or anything to do with — this entire fiasco” regarding the evidence-bag hoax the Erie County district attorney accused her mother of perpetrating last week. Roland M. Cercone, in a letter sent to the Chicago Tribune and The Buffalo News late Saturday, said his client is “ready, willing, and able to cooperate, as she has always done throughout this investigation” with any inquiry regarding what District Attorney Frank Sedita III called a “bizarre hoax.” He also asked people to pray for her, for Kane, for Kane’s family — and for those who keep leaking information about the investigation. Cercone believes Sedita, in his Friday press conference, left the false impression the 21-year-old woman he represents had declined to cooperate as authorities looked into how the plastic and paper bags got into her mother’s hands."
