Quincy man headed to jail for sexually abusing a child

62-year-old James Coons

A Quincy man is headed to prison for sexually abusing a young girl more than a decade ago.

A jury found 62-year-old James Coons guilty of predatory criminal sexual assault and sexual abuse in connection with preying on a seven-year-old girl back in 2002.

Police say the abuse continued until 2007.

He'll be sentenced later this year.
