Priest Is Indicted in Sex Abuse Case

Chicago Sun-Times
August 18, 1993

A Kane County grand jury on Tuesday indicted a priest at the Marmion Abbey near Aurora on sexual abuse charges.

The indictment charges Augustine K. Jones, 71, with four counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

Authorities said they were approached in June by a person who contended he was abused by Jones in November, 1990.

Jones was not in police custody Tuesday.

Jones is a priest in the Catholic Benedictine Monastery of Priests and Brothers and has no connection with the Marmion Military Academy, which is run by the Marmion Abbey, said abbey spokesman the Rev. Charles Reichenbacher.
