MADISON (WKOW) – A former prosecutor accused of sexual harassment is set to fight this week to save his law license.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation accused former Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz of multiple ethics violations. The agency wants the Wisconsin Supreme Court to suspend Kratz license for six months.
A case referee is set to take testimony starting Tuesday in Appleton before making a recommendation on punishment.
Kratz pleaded no contest to six violations but plans to argue he's already been out of law practice for six months and a license suspension isn't necessary.
Kratz resigned in October 2010 after it was reported he sent racy tests to a domestic abuse victim. A number of other women also came forward accusing him of sexual harassment.
