Jim Kraus, aka “Lunchbox”; “The Penguin”; “Bigboy” has been targeting The Kenosha County Eye (KCE) throughout the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse. As many of you know, this publication has been criticizing Kraus, and the entire Kenosha DA’s office for quite some time for misconduct. We are currently litigating two pending lawsuits involving the Kenosha DA’s office for failure to turn over public records relating to two examples of this misconduct. For one, an employee of the DA’s office threatened her step-daughter with a gun and slapped her, per court documents. A judge issued a no-contact order against the employee, commanding her to stay away from the little girl. We also requested, and were denied, disciplinary records of a prosecutor ( Kraus’ wife) who botched the prosecution of a woman who allegedly shook a baby so violently, it caused permanent brain damage. This defendant had her case dismissed without receiving any repercussions for her alleged actions.
Kraus has also been putting (KCE) Editor, Kevin Mathewson on witness lists for trials in which he is not a witness. He has also been sending police officers to his house to personally serve the subpoenas, which are customarily mailed to witnesses. Why is he doing this? To keep Mathewson away from the defense table. During trials, Mathewson often sits with defense attorneys and offers clerical and investigative assistance. The DA’s office doesn’t like this. Perhaps he is too skilled at criminal defense investigations for their comfort. If he is subpoenaed, he can’t be in the court room for the trial. Kraus knows this, and is exploiting it. There is a specific Supreme Court rule that prohibits this misconduct. Mathewson has complained to the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) and they are reviewing the matter. Something tells us the OLR will have many more grievances to deal with involving “Lunchbox” from other concerned proponents of fair justice.
We have been getting a question almost every day for some time now; How do I complain about T. Clair Binger and James Kraus’ unethical behavior? It’s actually pretty easy. Simply email all of the folks below and tell them that their (Rittenhouse Prosecutors) brazen disregard for the Fifth Amendment and court orders cannot go unchecked.
