APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Former prosecutor Ken Kratz told a judicial referee Tuesday that he’s made peace with himself, after a sex addiction that led his resignation, divorce, and bankruptcy. As he promised last week, the 52-year-old Kratz pleaded no contest to a half-dozen sex-related violations of Wisconsin’s judicial misconduct code. Five other counts were dropped last week. He admitted trying to set up encounters with several women in 2009 – including a domestic abuse victim while he was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. Kratz told the judicial referee had took various medicines and treatments while his marriage was breaking up in ’09 – and he allowed his sex addiction to enter his professional life for the first time. Kratz said it got so bad in 2010 – when former Governor Jim Doyle took steps to remove him from office – that he put a gun in his mouth. Now, Kratz said he no longer lives a double-life in shame, and he’s happier than he’s ever been. He told the judicial referee he got his self-respect back. Kratz said last Friday he would ask that his proposed six-month suspension of his law license be dropped, because he has suffered enough. The referee, former Rhinelander judge Robert Kinney, will make a recommendation to those who will have the final say – the State Supreme Court.
