EAU CLAIRE Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Former Eau Claire County District Attorney Gary King’s law license may be in jeopardy. The Office of Lawyer Regulation is asking the Supreme Court of Wisconsin to suspend his license for at least nine months for breaking Supreme Court rules
Gary King became Eau Claire County district attorney in 2012. In June, King was accused of sexual harassment at the office and working while intoxicated.
In July, the Eau Claire district attorney submitted his resignation amid a probe into the claims by Governor Evers’ office. The new complaint, filed May 5th by the Office of Lawyer Regulation, outlines the allegations in detail.
Several current and former Eau Claire County DA office employees reflect on instances of King falling asleep in meetings, missing court dates, having red eyes, and refusing breathalyzer tests. The complaint also recounts his behavior towards an office coordinator, Jessica Bryan.
The document says King played with her hair, put her on his lap, and attempted to kiss her. All of which she reported. He is also accused of inappropriate conduct with another female employee.
