Alfred Cote arrested last Monday, will be in court Tuesday

A Nauvoo man will be in court Tuesday, after his arrest last week on multiple counts of child sexual assault.

Alfred Cote will be in Hancock County Circuit Court for a motion hearing. The Hancock County Sheriff's Office says they arrested Cote last Monday on 15 counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault against a Child. Those are all Class X counts with a sentencing range of 6 to 60 years in prison per count, if convicted. Prosecutors say in a charging document that one child was six when the alleged abuse began. They say those incidents happened between 2009 and 2012. A second child was also allegedly abused between 2013 and 2016. That child was 11 when the alleged incidents began. Cote is due in court again December 12th for a preliminary hearing.

He's in the Hancock County Jail on a total of $500,000 bond.
