LeRoy man faces sex abuse charge

URBANA — A LeRoy man accused of sexually molesting a child in Champaign County has been arrested.

Champaign County sheriff’s Lt. Curt Apperson said Mark N. McCoy, 28, was picked up Monday at his home on a warrant issued by a Champaign County judge Friday.

He is charged with two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for sex acts that allegedly occurred with a boy under the age of 13 between 2011 and 2013.

Apperson said his department was notified of the allegations by the child’s mother in late June and has been investigating since. It’s believed that some of the sex acts took place at McCoy’s former home in the 1200 block of North Staley Road, Apperson said.

McCoy is being held in the Champaign County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.
