Accused New Ulm Child Molester Cited for Allegedly Tracking Wife

A rural New Ulm man who was charged earlier this year for allegedly molesting a teen girl is in more trouble.

Robert James Sorenson, age 56, was arrested Wednesday and cited for violating an order for protection (OFP) by allegedly tracking his wife. Nicollet County Sheriff’s investigators say it appears he was using the On-Star service in the vehicle his wife was driving to determine where she was – and he would then show up at those locations.

Wendy Diane Sorenson requested the OFP in mid-February, claiming verbal, physical and sexual abuse by Robert.

The OFP request came just days after criminal charges related to the molestation were brought against Robert, and her as well. Wendy Sorenson was charged with three counts of child endangerment for allegedly knowing about it and doing nothing to protect her daughters.

Wendy Sorenson is due back in court on August 15th for a pre-trial hearing. Robert Sorenson is scheduled for an omnibus hearing on September 12th.
