A fifth woman has come forward with allegations against Wisconsin District Attorney Kenneth Kratz, who has previously admitted to sending inappropriate text messages to a woman whose domestic abuse case he was handling. In the latest allegations, an unidentified woman claims that Kratz offered to help her prepare her victim statement for her domestic abuse case if she agreed to have sex with him.
“We’ll get that written and we’ll go to bed,” she alleges he said, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette.
The woman reportedly told the Wisconsin Department of Justice about the incident on Friday. “He knew everything that I wanted to hear as a domestic violence victim,” she said. “I needed to be taken care of … protected.”
Kratz has been accused of sending sexually suggestive text messages to multiple women, and even allegedly inviting a date to an autopsy.
The Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation reopened its investigation into Kratz last week.
He is scheduled to appear in court today.
Kratz has refused to step down, but did go on medical leave last week. His attorney told the Appleton Post Crescent last week that despite what he called the “scratching-your-head texts,” Kratz hopes to eventually return to his post.
