Harassment trial set for former Wis. DA

MADISON, Wis. -

A former Wisconsin prosecutor accused of sending racy text messages to a domestic abuse victim is due back in court next week to settle sexual harassment allegations.

Ken Kratz resigned from his position as Calumet County district attorney in 2010 after The Associated Press reported he tried to spark an affair with a woman while he prosecuted her ex-boyfriend for domestic abuse.

The woman has filed a federal lawsuit alleging Kratz sexually harassed her. She's seeking unspecified damages. A trial is set to begin in the case on Feb. 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.
