Wis. governor appoints replacement for sexting DA

The governor of Wisconsin has appointed a female prosecutor who was once the victim of sexual assault to replace a district attorney who resigned in disgrace after trying to strike up a relationship with a domestic violence victim.

Gov. Jim Doyle announced the appointment of Jerilyn Dietz as Calumet County district attorney on Friday. Dietz replaces Ken Kratz, who resigned in October after Doyle started the process to force him out.

Kratz has acknowledged sending suggestive text messages to a domestic violence victim while prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. At least four other women have said Kratz made inappropriate sexual advances toward them.

Dietz takes office Dec. 19. Doyle says Dietz is a strong prosecutor who will restore the community's faith in the office.
