During her campaign, Kane pledged to investigate Governor Tom Corbett's role in the Sandusky case, criticizing him for not charging Sandusky sooner.
Kane calls Moulton a "highly respected former federal prosecutor."
Moulton is well known for his role in the report on the failed ATF Raid on the Branch Davidian Compound near Waco, Texas.
Moulton is a former United States Supreme Court Law Clerk and is now an Associate Professor at Widener University School of Law.
We spoke with folks in the Penn State community today. Some are glad Kane is upholding her promise to investigate Governor Corbett's role, others don't think this new investigation is necessary.
"I think parties are all so politicized at this point that I'm not sure that there's going to be much else that can be, much progress that can be made because both sides are going to dig into the trenches," Mary Ann Bruns said. "I think it's going to be very difficult to show that Corbett did anything wrong in building a strong case against Sandusky."
Kane says Moulton's investigation into the matter will begin immediately and any information he uncovers will be released to the public through the Attorney General's office.
Penn State would not comment on Moulton's new role, saying the matter could relate to ongoing litigation.
