Wisconsin DA won't step down amid texting controversy

A Wisconsin prosecutor apologized Friday for sending personal texts to a domestic abuse victim while prosecuting her former boyfriend, but said he won't step down from office.

Calumet County District Attorney Kenneth Kratz said he intended to stay in office "as I have been elected to do."

E-mails from November 2009 between Kratz and the Wisconsin Department of Justice show Kratz denied wrong-doing for weeks before finally saying, "My behavior was inappropriate."

"This behavior showed a lack of respect, not only for my position, but for the young woman that was involved."

Kratz said he has already seen a psychotherapist, and may consider taking personal time off to seek additional treatment for this issue.
