James Riley to have motion hearing Friday

A former chaplain at a Quincy nursing home, accused of sexually assaulting two woman over 60 in May and of assaulting two young girls over a decade ago, wants to have his $500,000 bond lowered.

James Riley was in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday on a total of six counts. He was set to have a preliminary hearing on two counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a person over 60. Records show that was delayed, and Riley will be back in court Friday for a motion hearing, on lowering his bond. Prosecutors allege that 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 will also be back in court Friday 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, after being there since 2010. Police also said that the charges involving Good Sam residents are being investigated by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Riley is in the Adams County Jail.
