MADISON (WKOW) -- A former Wisconsin prosecutor who stepped down after a sexting scandal says he's bankrupt.
Court records show Ken Kratz filed for bankruptcy protection in April.
Records show Kratz said he has as many as 49 creditors and at least $500,000 in liabilities.
Kratz resigned as Calumet County District Attorney in 2010 after sending racy text messages to a woman while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend for domestic abuse.
The woman has filed a federal sexual harassment suit seeking unspecified damages. The bankruptcy filing stayed all creditors' actions against Kratz, though, freezing the case. The woman's attorney, Michael Fox, says he plans to dispute classifying the lawsuit as a debt.
