MADISON (AP) — A Wisconsin prosecutor who tried to spark an affair with a domestic violence victim has resigned.
The Associated Press reported last month that Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz sent 30 text messages to a domestic abuse victim while he prosecuted her ex-boyfriend on a strangulation charge.
Gov. Jim Doyle began the process to remove Kratz from office about two weeks ago. His attorney said last week he would resign before this Friday.
Kratz issued a statement to the media on Monday saying he has lost the confidence of the people he represents. He also apologized to his family for embarrassing them.
