Kramer in court today

WAUKESHA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Former state Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer is due in court this morning on charges that he groped a woman's breasts in 2011.

A Waukesha County judge will determine if there's enough evidence to send the 49-year-old Kramer to trial on two felony counts of second-degree sexual assault. If he's bound over, his attorney has said that Kramer would plead innocent. Normally, that would happen later during an arraignment.

Kramer was charged in March, a few weeks after reports that he groped a woman and sexually harassed another in February on a G-O-P fund-raising trip to Washington. After that came out, an ex-congressional staffer said Kramer groped her and asked for sex following a Republican event in Muskego. That's the case for which he's being charged. Kramer told police he kissed the woman good-night, but denied groping her.

Assembly Republicans removed Kramer as the majority leader of the lower house after reports of the February incident. He's not running for re-election this fall after eight years in the Assembly -- but Kramer rejected calls by lawmakers of both parties to step down before his current term ends in early January.
