MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged former Wisconsin Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer with sexually assaulting a political aide three years ago.

According to a criminal complaint filed Friday in Waukesha County, a woman told a detective on March 5 that Kramer tried to kiss her and groped her after a political event in Muskego in April 2011. She said Kramer was drunk and she was afraid he was going to rape her. Kramer told a detective he may have kissed the woman but denied groping her.

He faces two counts of second-degree sexual assault and could face up to 80 years in prison if convicted.

Assembly Republicans removed Kramer as majority leader earlier this month amid allegations he sexually harassed two women in Washington, D.C. He's not seeking re-election to the Assembly
