MADISON (AP) — The agency that oversees Wisconsin lawyers has dropped three misconduct counts against a former prosecutor accused of rampant sexual harassment.

The Office of Lawyer Regulation has filed 11 misconduct counts against Ken Kratz. He could lose his law license for six months.

OLR attorney Tom Basting told case referee Robert E. Kinney Thursday, June 14th, the department won’t pursue a count accusing Kratz of creating a conflict of interest by pursing a relationship with woman while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend for domestic abuse.

The agency also won’t pursue two counts accusing Kratz of soliciting another woman seeking his help with a pardon.

Kratz has argued he removed himself from the domestic abuse prosecution and the woman seeking a pardon lied.

A hearing on the remaining counts is set for Tuesday, June 19th.
