Elementary school basketball coach held on sex charges


April 10, 2006 (CHICAGO) - A former elementary school basketball coach and cafeteria worker from Chicago's South Side is being held without bond in the Cook County Jail on charges of sexually abusing children.

Thirty-six-year-old Alonso Bracey, who also directed the choir at the Light House Baptist Church, is accused of taking six students from the Clara Barton Elementary School to his apartment in January. Police say the boys ranged in age from eleven to 13. They say Bracey fondled three of them, assaulted two, and forced a sixth boy to remove his pants.
