MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State Rep. Bill Kramer is to be sentenced in Waukesha County on sexual assault charges.

The former Assembly majority leader earlier agreed to plead no contest to two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sexual assault just before he was to go on trial on felony charges.

Sentencing is scheduled Tuesday afternoon before Judge Michael Aprahamian. Prosecutors are recommending a sentence of nine months in jail and three years of probation. Kramer would not have to register as a sex offender.

According to a criminal complaint, the town of Waukesha Republican groped a woman outside a GOP event at a Muskego tavern in 2011. Kramer was also accused of harassing two other women, a legislative aide and a lobbyist, at a fundraiser in Washington, D.C., in February.
