WAUKESHA CO. (WITI) -- Wisconsin lawmaker Bill Kramer faces two charges of second-degree sexual assault. The charges were filed in Waukesha County Friday afternoon, March 28th.
A criminal complaint says the incident in question happened in April 2011.
Investigators say Kramer asked the victim for a ride after a political event at a Muskego bar. The victim says before they got in, Kramer kissed her and put his hands on her breasts. She says she pushed him away and then they got in the car. While inside, the complaint says Kramer against kissed her and this time put his hand on her groin.
After the incident, the victim had a local attorney draft a letter telling Kramer to stay away from her. According to the police report, the woman worried that reporting the incident earlier might embarrass her family, the Republican Party and the victim herself.
When asked about the incident, Kramer says he might have given the victim a kiss goodbye.
Last month, two women accused Kramer of sexually harassing them at a fundraiser in Washington, D.C. Since then, Kramer was stripped of his title as the Assembly's majority leader. He also recently announced he would not seek re-election.
Kramer is set to appear in court April 14th. If convicted, each charge carries a penalty of up to $100,000 and/or 40 years in prison.
Calls to Kramer's office have not been returned. Kramer's attorney tells FOX6 the representative will not be speaking to us.
