James Riley set to go on trial September 9

A former chaplain at a Quincy nursing home, indicted on charges of sexually assaulting two women over 60 in May and assaulting two young girls over a decade ago, has pleaded Not Guilty to all counts.

James Riley was in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday for a status hearing, where he entered those Not Guilty pleas. Records show he'll go on trial September 9th. Riley was indicted last Thursday by an Adams County Grand Jury on a total of six counts. Those include two counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a person over 60. Prosecutors allege the incidents at the Good Samaritan Home happened May 1st, against a 88-year old woman, and again on May 31st, against a 78-year old woman. Riley was also indicted on one Class X count of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault and three counts of Criminal Sexual Assault. He's accused of sexually assaulting a girl under 13, and a second girl under 18, between late 2001 and 2003. Riley was dismissed earlier this year as chaplain at Good Sam.

Riley is in the Adams County Jail on $500,000 bond, and will be back in court August 14th.
