APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A former Wisconsin prosecutor accused of rampant sexual harassment says he was addicted to sex and prescription drugs.
The Appleton Post-Crescent reports former Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz testified in a state Office of Lawyer Regulation hearing Tuesday his sexual compulsions didn't affect his professional life until 2009, when prescription drugs lowered his inhibitions and he tried to spark an affair with a domestic abuse victim through a barrage of text messages.
Kratz resigned in 2010 after The Associated Press reported the texts. He testified he put a gun in his mouth as criticism mounted.
The OLR wants the state Supreme Court to suspend Kratz's law license. Kratz is trying to convince a referee at the hearing he has suffered enough.
