A former district attorney who resigned after a sexting scandal is filing for bankruptcy. A bankruptcy petition has been filed on behalf of former Calumet County DA Ken Kratz in Green Bay federal court. The filing lists 49 creditors for Kratz, with liabilities of at least a half million dollars.
Kratz resigned in October of 2010 after he was accused of sending racy text messages to a domestic abuse victim. The woman has filed a sexual harassment suit against him, seeking unspecified damages.
Kratz still has a pending disciplinary case as well. The Office of Lawyer Regulation has asked the Supreme Court to suspend his law license. A hearing on the issue is scheduled to take place next month.
