Former Wis. Assembly Majority Leader charged with sexual assault

MADISON, WI (WEAU) Prosecutors have charged former Wisconsin Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer with sexually assaulting a political aide three years ago.

According to a criminal complaint filed Friday, a woman told a detective on March 5th that Kramer tried to kiss her and groped her after a political event in Muskego in 2011.

Kramer told a detective he may have kissed the woman but denied groping her.

He faces two counts of second-degree sexual assault and could face up to 80-years in prison if he's convicted.

Assembly Republicans removed Kramer as majority leader earlier this month.
