Former Winter priest accused of sexual assault doesn’t want jury trial

ASHLAND, WI–A former Winter priest accused of sexual misconduct says he doesn’t want a jury trial.

According to the Ashland Daily Press, Thomas Ericksen, 71, made that request during a court hearing last week.

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

Two more charges could be coming out of Lincoln County, where Ericksen also worked as a Chaplain.

Ericksen will be back in court next month.
