Republican Lawmaker Charged With Sexual Assault
Former Wisconsin Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer has been charged with sexually assaulting a political aide three years ago.
Kramer is charged with two counts of second-degree felony sexual assault. He faces up to $200,000 in fines and 80 years in prison if convicted on both charges. He is due to make an initial court appearance on April 14.
According to the criminal complaint, the woman told police earlier this month that Kramer shoved her against her car outside the mixer, tried to kiss her and groped her breasts. He also assaulted her in her car, telling her he wanted to have sex with her, kissing her and groping her, the woman said.
The complaint said Kramer gave different answers about the incident in a telephone interview with a detective this month.
