WAUKESHA, Wis. -- State Rep. Bill Kramer, former majority leader of the Wisconsin Assembly, is due to stand trial in October on sexual assault charges.

During a hearing Friday, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Donald Hassin scheduled a status conference for Oct. 23 and a jury trial for Oct. 28.

Kramer's attorney, Eduardo Borda, tells the Waukesha Freeman they'll continue to fight the allegations that Kramer shoved a woman into a car, tried to kiss her, groped her and made inappropriate comments to her outside a GOP event at a Muskego tavern in April 2011.

Kramer, R-Town of Waukesha, pleaded not guilty in May.
He was elected majority leader in September but removed in March after allegations surfaced that he sexually harassed a lobbyist and a legislative staffer the previous month.
