(Harrisburg) -- The state attorney general's office has canceled a news conference scheduled for later today that was to announce preliminary results of an investigation into inappropriate emails found on commonwealth servers.

Solicitor General Bruce L. Castor Jr. says he determined the working draft report wasn't comprehensive and contained too much redacted material.

He says he investigators' findings will be released sometime during the summer.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane in December ordered the review by former Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler of offensive, sometimes raunchy and sometimes pornographic material shared among judges, prosecutors and others in the criminal justice system.

Gansler said in March it was unlikely that the probe would result in criminal charges but indicated that he intended to make all of the material public.
