State Rep. Bill Kramer (R-Town of Waukesha) was sentenced Tuesday to five months in jail, after pleading no contest last month to reduced charges of two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sexual assault.
The jail term is a condition of a three-year probation sentence.
He will begin serving his jail time, with work-release privileges, on Dec. 4.
Bill Kramer got a pretty sweet deal from DA Brad Schimel’s office, considering his three years of probation does not include having to register as a sex offender.
The old adage that it pays to have friends in high places certainly seems to fit this situation, especially given how easy Bill Kramer got off when facing far more serious consequences for his behavior.
