"Nothing really happened to him and I had three days of hell," Van Groll said in a phone interview with the AP. "They gave him a slap on the wrist and told him not to do it again. If it was anybody else that did something like this, they'd lose their job."
Domestic violence experts called Kratz's text messages disturbing and unethical for several reasons, including the power differential between a prosecutor and a younger abuse victim.

What an effing pig! Why aren't charges of sexual harassment warranted here? The woman clearly felt threatened by the attention and the implication that if she didn't respond favorably to his requests, the case against her ex-boyfriend may not go through. This is an abuse of power and this pig should be removed from the prosecutors office. He should also be charged with sexual harassment. I'd even go so far as to suggest the the woman should sue him for sexual harassment, which I normally wouldn't do.
