A former New Ulm cop has pled guilty to sexually assaulting minors. Eric Gramentz, 45, now awaits sentencing on multiple charges of 1st and 2nd-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Gramentz was arrested and charged last Spring after a girl reported he’d inappropriately touched her when she was 11 or 12 years old.

Gramentz agreed to turn himself in to police after the adult confronted him about the alleged abuse. Another child later came forward with additional accusations.
