Former Chaplain to Plead Guilty to Sexual Assault Charges
A former Quincy nursing home chaplain charged with sexual abuse is expected to enter a guilty plea next month.
58 year old James Riley waived his right to a jury trial Thursday in Adams County Circuit Court. The case was set for a plea and sentencing hearing September 9th.
At that hearing, Riley is expected to plead guilty to two counts of criminal sexual abuse, one count of criminal sexual assault and predatory criminal sexual assault.
Riley is alleged to have had sexual contact by use of force with two residents of Good Samaritan Home, where he served as chaplain, in May.
In a separate case, Riley will plead guilty to one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and three counts of criminal sexual assault.
Riley is alleged to have had sexual contact with a child younger than 13 and another younger than 18 between 2001 and 2003.
Riley remains in the Adams County Jail on $500,000 bond.
