Wisconsin prosecutor 'sexted' domestic abuse victim: report


www.rawstory.com

A prominent Wisconsin district attorney sent repeated text messages trying to spark an affair with a domestic abuse victim while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend, a police report shows.

The 26-year-old woman complained last year to police after receiving 30 texts from Calumet County District Attorney Kenneth Kratz in three days, according to the report obtained by The Associated Press.

In a combative interview in his office Wednesday, Kratz did not deny sending the messages and expressed concern their publication would unfairly embarrass him personally and professionally. He said the Office of Lawyer Regulation had found he did not violate any rules governing attorney misconduct. That office cannot comment on investigations.

This makes me sick to my stomach, knowing that he was probably prosecuting the man, just to have an affair with this woman. Sadly, I'm sure this kind of thing happens all of the time.

We no longer really have a justice system, as opposed to an "injustice system". When a prosecutor can do this and get away with it, then something is obviously broken. Luckily, this young lady came forward but I'm sure that she is the exception, not the rule.

Think about it... A woman wants to "get back" at her husband for whatever reason or maybe she wants a divorce and to get a nice little nest-egg with that divorce. She could have just as easily lead this charachter on and got him to trump up charges or apply charges that shouldn't have materialized in the first place. I applaud this young lady for doing the right thing, if in fact what she says is true.

It's pretty scary that a man can easily loose not only his freedom, money and reputation but also his livelihood on the actions of a lawyer and that this behavior isn't even seen as bad, according to the law. If our [in]justice system is so flimsy that something like this can happen and without recourse, then that should speak volumes for how faulty the whole justice structure is.

You know, less than 1000 years ago you can land yourself chained to a wall in a dungeon, just for speaking ill of a nobleman, so while our justice system has improved a little, it is nowhere even close to being just and/or fair. I suspect it will take another 1000 years or so before we see any kind of improvement that makes such a system even resemble "fair".

This poor guy who is being prosecuted will probably be the real loser in all of this. He most likely won't be able to use this prosecutor's antics in court for his defense, seeing how the lawyer did nothing illegal and just to save face, the prosecutor will probably drive on and keep the case as hard as ever. To let the guy go, would be to admit he was prosecuting him in the first place just to have at the affair.

Whether the husband is guilty or not, I have no idea, however I do think the whole case is now tainted and he should be allowed off the hook. Sadly, our injustice system isn't that fair so it's highly unlikely. The accused should always get the benefit of the doubt, as it better to allow 10 criminals to go free, than to imprison just one innocent person.
