A Quincy man gets twelve years in prison after pleading guilty to two charges in Adams County Circuit Court Monday.

26 year old Allen Howard pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse and, in a separate case, also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery.

Howard is alleged to have sexually abused a 15 year old girl who went to his residence in the 700 block of Harrison last June.

Howard is also alleged to have struck a man in the head and body that same day in June in the 500 block of Van Buren.

Howard was sentenced to seven years for the sexual abuse and five years for the battery charge, with the sentences to be served concurrently.
