Lawyer: Kramer to plead not guilty to sexual assault
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — The lawyer for former state Majority Leader Bill Kramer says his client will plead not guilty to two counts of second-degree sexual assault.
Defense attorney Eduardo Borda told reporters Monday the defense plans to scrutinize the claims and conduct of the witnesses in the case.
Kramer is accused of groping a woman following a GOP fundraiser three years ago. She told investigators he tried to kiss her, groped her breasts and told her he wanted to have sex with her.
Kramer acknowledged to investigators that he kissed her good night but denies groping her.
The Waukesha Republican didn’t speak during a brief initial court appearance Monday. He was released on a $5,000 signature bond, and remained silent as a gaggle of reporters trailed him in the hallway asking questions.
