APPLETON (WXOW) -- A former Wisconsin prosecutor accused of misconduct says he was addicted to sex and prescription drugs.
Former Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz testified in a state Office of Lawyer Regulation hearing Tuesday. He said his struggles with sex and prescription drugs started to affect his professional life in 2009.
Kratz resigned as Calumet County District Attorney in 2010 after sending inappropriate text messages to a woman while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. Kratz told the OLR that he put a gun in his mouth as he faced criticism for his behavior.
Kratz is trying to convince a referee at the hearing he has suffered enough.
The OLR wants the state Supreme Court to suspend Kratz's law license.
