MADISON (WSAU) The State Justice Department will not offer legal representation to disgraced former-Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz. He's being sued for sending racy text messages to domestic violence victims.

Kratz resigned in October. At least four women say he sent "sexting" messages to them. One woman, Stephanie Van Groll, says she received 30 messages while Kratz was prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. She's filed a federal lawsuit claiming her civil rights were violated. Kratz asked the state to represent him in that case, since he was serving as a public official. The Department of Justice said 'no'.
