A special prosecutor is being sought for a case in which a former Jackson County district attorney has been accused of paying cash for sexual favors from three victims who used the money to buy illegal narcotics.Jackson County District Attorney Gerald Fox confirmed Tuesday he has received a referral from the Jackson County sheriff’s office regarding the allegations against James C. “I have a conflict of interest in prosecuting the case criminally, but I believe it has merit and I will be seeking a special prosecutor to review it,” Fox said.Ritland, who served as Jackson County district attorney from 1981-82 and then opened his own law office in Black River Falls in 1983, was not arrested but was referred for charges of prostitution, soliciting prostitution and keeping and maintaining a drug house.
The investigation, which began with the first tip in February 2015, revealed reports indicating Ritland would provide the victims with money to buy illegal narcotics in exchange for the victims performing sex acts.
The victims would buy the drugs in the alley behind Ritland’s law office and then use the narcotics inside the office before performing the sex acts, according to a news release issued Monday by the sheriff’s office.
Ritland responded Tuesday with the following written statement: “I have not been charged with a crime.
However, if I am charged, I am confident that I will be found not guilty.” Waldera said it’s possible more victims could come forward as news of the referral goes public and asked anyone with information regarding the investigation to contact the Jackson County sheriff’s office at 715-284-9009 or [email protected]
