QUINCY — A Quincy man accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl has waived his jury trial pursuant to a plea negotiation.

Jonathan Graff, 31, appeared Wednesday morning in Adams County Circuit Court with his attorney, Drew Schnack, before Judge Roger Thomson. Graff will enter his plea on Aug. 31.

Graff was indicted July 2 by an Adams County grand jury, which determined Graff fondled the sex organ of a girl, who was at least 13 years old but under 17 years old, through her clothing on May 12 for the purpose of his sexual arousal or gratification. 

Graff was arrested May 19. He pled not guilty to one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony punishable for between three and seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections and a fine of up to $25,000. 

Graff was an assistant coach on the girls basketball team at Quincy Notre Dame, a youth boys and girls basketball coach for a local AAU team and an employee of TAP (Total Athlete Performance). He remains in the Adams County Jail on $100,000 bond.
