Bill Kramer pleads not guilty to sexual assault, waives hearing

May 15, 2014 9:36 p.m. | Waukesha — Rep. Bill Kramer pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of second-degree sexual assault Thursday in Waukesha County Circuit Court in connection with allegations that he groped a female congressional staffer in Muskego three years ago.

Kramer (R-Waukesha) waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and Court Commissioner Thomas J. Pieper found probable cause for the case to proceed to trial. Each count of sexual assault carries a maximum possible penalty of 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.

Kramer's next court appearance is scheduled for June 18. A trial date has not yet been set.
