Former Quincy chaplain pleads not guilty to sex abuse charges

QUINCY (WGEM) — A former Quincy nursing home chaplain pleaded not guilty to sex abuse charges on Wednesday.

Court records state that James Riley, who is charged with two counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a Person Over 60, one count of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child under the age of 13, and three counts of Criminal Sexual Assault of a person under the age of 18, pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Riley previously served as a chaplain at the Good Samaritan Home in Quincy.

Quincy Police stated that Riley was arrested in June after Good Samaritan Home administrators contacted their department after residents reported allegations of inappropriate contact by a chaplain who is no longer at the home.

While conducting the investigation into Riley regarding the nursing home allegations, Quincy Police were made aware of other alleged inappropriate sexual contact with female victims under the ages of 18 and 13.

Riley’s jury trial is scheduled for September 9.
