D.A. KRATZ QUITS

Ken Kratz resigned today as Calumet County’s district attorney, almost three weeks after he first admitted giving sexually-suggestive messages to a woman. In a statement, Kratz said he lost the confidence of the people he represented, due primarily to quote, “personal issues which have now affected my professional career.”

It was first reported last month that Kratz sent 30 racy text messages last fall to a domestic abuse victim while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. At least four other women then came forward with stories of what Kratz told them – including one who said Kratz offered to help write a victim-witness statement in exchange for sex.

Doyle said this morning that every crime victim has the right to be treated with respect and dignity, and Kratz violated that right.
