A Wisconsin prosecutor facing removal from office over accusations that he abused his position in seeking relationships with vulnerable women will resign instead, his attorney said Monday. The attorney said Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz, who reportedly sent 30 text messages to a domestic abuse victim trying to strike up an affair while he prosecuted her ex-boyfriend on a strangulation charge, will step down before Oct. 8, the date set for a hearing to hear testimony on his possible removal from office.
