Supreme Court to decide sexting prosecutor's fate

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (AP) -- A former prosecutor accused of sexual harassment is about to learn whether he can keep practicing law in Wisconsin.

The state Office of Lawyer Regulation has recommended the state Supreme Court suspend Ken Kratz's law license for six months. A referee handling the case has recommended a four-month suspension. Kratz has argued he's suffered enough and he deserves to keep his license.

Kratz was serving as Calumet County's district attorney in 2010 when The Associated Press reported he tried to spark a relationship with a 25-year-old woman through a barrage of racy text messages in 2009 while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend for domestic abuse. More women then came forward and accused him of making sexual comments to them.

Kratz ultimately resigned and later filed for bankruptcy.
