CHILTON, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a prominent Wisconsin district attorney sent repeated text messages trying to spark an affair with a domestic abuse victim while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend.
The 26-year-old woman complained last year to police after receiving 30 texts from Calumet County District Attorney Kenneth Kratz in three days.
A police report obtained by The Associated Press shows one message from the 50-year-old Kratz asked whether the woman was "the kind of girl that likes secret contact with an older married elected DA." In several others, he talks about her good looks and his desire to start a relationship.
Kratz on Wednesday didn't deny sending the messages but said the Office of Lawyer Regulation had found his behavior didn't violate rules governing attorney conduct.
