A prominent Quincy businessman is in jail on a charge of committing a sex crime against a child.
Patrick Le Coq, owner of Café Le Coq in Quincy, was arrested Tuesday, June 26, at his home and place of business.
Le Coq was charged with committing a lewd and lascivious act against a child under the age of 14.
He is being held on $50,000 bail at the Plumas County Jail.
During a Monday, July 2, court appearance in Quincy, Superior Court Judge Janet Hilde assigned public defender Bill Abramson to represent Le Coq.
The judge also ordered Le Coq not to have any contact with the alleged victim, if he is released on bail.
Le Coq, who has not entered a plea to the charge, waived formal arraignment and is expected to enter a “not guilty” plea, according to Abramson.
Because of the sensitivity of the case, Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister said he did not want to comment at this time.
