MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former Wisconsin prosecutor accused of rampant sexual harassment has agreed to plead no contest to six ethics violations.
The state Office of Lawyer Regulation filed a complaint against former Calumet County District Ken Kratz in November alleging 11 breaches of state Supreme Court attorney conduct rules. The complaint alleges Katz solicited a domestic abuse victim, had sex with a woman he prosecuted and made sexual remarks to other women, and asked the court to suspend his law license.
A hearing is set for Tuesday.
Office of Lawyer Regulation attorney Tom Basting agreed to drop five counts including two connected to the sexual assault allegations that he dropped Friday. Kratz agreed to plead no contest to the remaining six counts.
