Former Winter priest pleads no contest to sexual assault of a child

SAWYER COUNTY, WI — A former priest in Winter, Wisconsin is guilty of sexual assault against a child.

Records show a judge found Thomas Ericksen guilty during a plea hearing Tuesday.

The 71-year-old was accused of sexually assaulting children while serving as a priest in Winter decades ago.

He requested not to have a jury trial last month.

Ericksen’s sentencing is set for August.
