Former district attorney's harassment trial set


MADISON (WKOW) -- A former Wisconsin prosecutor will be back in court next week to settle sexual harassment allegations.

Ken Kratz resigned as Calumet County district attorney in 2010 after The Associated Press reported he tried to spark an affair wit a woman while he prosecuted her ex-boyfriend for domestic abuse. Kratz allegedly sent her racy text messages.

The woman filed a federal lawsuit alleging harassment. She's seeking unspecified damages. The trial is scheduled for February 19 in Milwaukee.

The state Office of Lawyer Regulation has recommended the state Supreme Court suspend Kratz's law license for six months. The court has yet to issue a decision on the recommendation.
