Justice Dept. won't file criminal charges against Ken Kratz

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Former Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz won't have charges filed against him by the state Department of Justice.

Kratz resigned in October after admitting to sending racy text messages to a domestic abuse victim.

Then-Gov. Jim Doyle began removal proceedings against Kratz, but he quit.

The Justice Department reopened an investigation into Kratz, however, after earlier concluding no criminal wrongdoing.

The agency says 15 women alleged improprieties by Kratz, including two who said they had sexual contact with him.

Kratz's attorney says he believed the agency made the right decision.
